Abstract
This comparative study represents the dietary fiber awareness among the two selected areas of Bangladesh, especially urban & rural areas to detect the situation about knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) of dietary fiber. This study is conducted among 100 people of two areas and shows that knowledge about dietary fiber is higher among the respondents of urban (96%) than the respondents of rural (74%). This study also represents that the attitude to prefer drugs, using laxative is higher among the respondents of urban area. But the curiosity of more intake of dietary fiber is higher among the rural people. This study also shows that among the rural people, the tendency of buying dietary fiber containing foods and intake of fresh dietary fiber foods is higher than urban. But practice of habiting of dietary fiber in fiber content foods stuffs is very much conscious among the respondents of both areas.
