Cellulose

Cellulose is a polysaccharide that forms the wall of plant cells and maintains their structural integrity. It forms the major part of the fibre in a human diet and is completely insoluble and indigestible, having no nutritional value, but along with other fibres being essential for the function of the gut. High levels of cellulose are found in beans, celery, bran, bananas and apples.
