Abstract

In foodstuffs for different food groups, the crude fibre content of all foods was lower than fibre estimated by other methods. Dietary fibre content of starchy foods was higher by Hellendoorn's than by other methods. Fibre was lower by Soest's than by other methods. When pectin content was added to neutral detergent fibre content, the serum was almost the same as the dietary fibre content estimated by Southgate's method. Comparison of results showed that the crude-fibre method had to be replaced by reliable methods. Southgate's is tedious but given details of the water-soluble and water-insoluble non-cellulose and cellulose and lignin fractions. Soest's methods are quick and estimate hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin. The enzymatic method of Hellendoorn may be suitable for relating indigestible content to the physiological effects of dietary fibre.
