Carbohydrates are organic molecules commonly found in food products. Some of the carbonates are dietary fiber or crude fibers.

Dietary fiber is an expression used to separate cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin from other compounds that make up the plant cell wall. Vegetable food products are soft or hard, easy to digest and energy values ​​always depend on the amount of fiber.

There are no enzymes in the human body that break down the raw fiber-forming compounds. Therefore, they are not enzymatically burned in the digestive tract and do not constitute an energy value for humans. But they give a feeling of satiety. In addition, pulp-forming, water-retaining, bowel movements are regulating and enhancing effects. It also has the properties of preventing bowel cancer and constipation. In this respect, the value of raw fiber is very high in terms of healthy nutrition.

In addition, raw fiber in animal feed is a measure of nutritional value. Since the raw fiber cannot be easily digested, the nutritional value of the feed rich in fiber is low.

In order to determine the nutritional value and the quality of food and possible tricks in foods and to determine the quality characteristics, raw fiber determination is also carried out as required by legal regulations.

While chemical analyzes are carried out in vegetable foodstuffs, the sum of the remaining organic components after the extraction of crude protein, crude oil and non-nitrogenous extracts from organic materials gives the raw fiber value. The raw fiber consists essentially of plant-based carbohydrates such as cellulose, hemicellulose and hardly digestible lignin.

Food fibers, especially in products with low fat content, heat-treated meat products, water retention capacity, contribute to the development of tissue and reduce the loss of cooking features such as find use.

Dietary fiber determination is also carried out in authorized laboratories within the scope of chemical tests. In these studies, the standards issued by domestic and foreign organizations are complied with.
