Relationships among crude fiber, neutral detergent fiber, in vitro dietary fiber, and in vivo (rats) dietary fiber in wheat foods



Relationships among crude fiber, neutral detergent fiber, in vitro dietary fiber, and in vivo (rats) dietary fiber in wheat foods



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 32(6): 1188-1191



The in vivo dietary fiber contents of wheat milling fractions and wheat foods, determined in rat feeding experiments, were compared with dietary fiber values determined in vitro with pronase alpha-amylase digestion. Both types of dietary fiber values were compared with crude fiber and neutral detergent fiber values in the same materials. Regression analyses indicated close correlation among all values determined. It appears that laboratory analysis for crude fiber, neutral detergent fiber, or in vitro dietary fiber accurately predicts in vivo dietary fiber (rats) for wheat milling fractions when the laboratory result is adjusted by means of an appropriate regression equation. It remains to be established if in vivo dietary fiber values determined for the rat are applicable to humans. Only then can values determined by these laboratory techniques be recommended with certainty as a dietary fiber value for wheat foods in human nutrition.
