  1. aTotal dietary fibre calculated as the sum of fructan and total dietary fibre analyzed by the Uppsala method.
  2. bExtractable dietary fibre calculated as the sum of fructan and extractable dietary fibre analyzed by the Uppsala method.
  3. cCalculated from arabinose, xylose and extractable galactose residue values assuming that the arabinose to galactose ratio is 0.69 in extractable arabinogalactan.
  4. dCellulose and resistant starch calculated as the difference between total β-glucan and the glucose residues analyzed by the Uppsala method.
