1The samples were analysed in duplicate by AnalyCen, Lidköping, Sweden. Total dietary fibre was analysed according to AOAC 45.4.07 and unextractable dietary fibre according to AOAC 32.1.16. Extractable dietary fibre was calculated by difference. Available carbohydrate was calculated by difference (total weight minus water, protein, fat, ash and total dietary fibre).
