Raw Fiber Analyzers
FIWE units are suitable for the crude fiber analysis and detergent fiber extraction according to official standard methods.
- Vegetables and derived products are made up of substances belonging to different categories
Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, mineral salts
A non-digestible component consisting of polymers (lignin, cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin) called “fiber”
- Nutritional importance for analysis
Too much fiber can cause digestive problems
Low fiber intake creates irregularities in the functioning of the digestive tract
- Authorities of almost all countries require manufacturers of food & feed products to declare the fiber content as part of the nutritional table
- Weende Method
The oldest analytical procedure still in use today, in which fiber concentration is measured as crude fiber (CF)
- Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) Method
A method developed by Van Soest, being now the most common measure of fiber used for animal feed analysis
Fiber Analyzers - FIWE Series
Fiber Analyzers that use pre-heated reagents for fiber analysis according to Weende, Van Soest and other official methods.
Cold Extractor - COEX
Cold extractor that performs rapid fat extraction directly in the same glass crucibles that are used by the FIWE Series for raw fiber analysis.
