Abstract

Abstract A brief summary is given of the recent and progressing research at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in development of analytical methodology for plant cell wall components (dietary fiber) and mixed-linkage β-glucans. Applications of the methods for the chemical characterization of various types of human and monogastric animal foods will be presented, including heat-processed, starch-rich foods. In the latter group Maillard reaction products, “resistant starch” and chemically transformed starch increase the dietary fiber values. Nutritional studies on the role and properties of plant cell wall materials in connection with bile acid and cholesterol metabolism in hamster and with digestion of pig and poultry diets will be discussed.
