ALIFE The “all-in-one” method to measure the Total Dietary Fibre content was implemented at the Hanze University of Applies Sciences. Wholemeal bread and crackers showed the expected % of TDF (approx. 6 and10 %, respectively). Enzymatic treatment with a novel starch-modifying enzyme clearly resulted in an increased TDF content of starch from 1.6% to approx. 27%. Due the limited amount of sample material and low ash-content of starch, ash values were abberant. In the near future, on-going research will reveal whether the MWSDF+IDF of these enzymatically modified starches also possess any prebiotic activity and stimulate growth of probiotic bacteria.
