Dietary Fibre

The last decade has seen significant developments in our knowledge of dietary fibre and its role in preservation of health and disease risk reduction. The concept has broadened, and the quest for a universally recognised definition of dietary fibre continues. In defining fibre, the emphasis has shifted from analytical methodology to physiological impact, and it is no longer possible to apply a single analytical method to measure the quantity of dietary fibre in foods.

The purpose of the present Concise Monograph, commissioned by the ILSI Europe Dietary Carbohydrates Task Force, is to bring the subject up-to-date, highlighting the current status of deliberations concerning an appropriate definition of dietary fibre, the possible methods of analysis, and physiological and health aspects.
