The book contains the proceedings of the Symposium on Dietary Fiber—With Emphasis on Energy Value. Dietary fiber is and will remain an important nutrient for better nutrition and health. This book is grouped into four areas of emphasis: definitions of dietary fiber and methods of analysis, reviews on the energy values of dietary fiber, physiological effects of dietary fiber, and dietary fiber as a food ingredient.

Dietary Fiber: An International Perspective for Harmonization of Health Benefits and Energy Values provides clarity to resolving the international discussion of issues for the reconsideration and verification of the concept of “dietary fiber” and the establishment of its definition. In addition, this book hopes to help consumers gain an accurate understanding of “dietary fiber,” and to facilitate its safe use for the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of disease.
