  Working Principles
Click to ViewFibre refers to the residue of a feed that is insoluble after successive boiling with dilute acid and alkali. In the Weende’s method when the sample is subjected to acid and alkali digestion, we obtain a residue comprising ash (mineral matter) of the feed and the resistant fraction of carbohydrate. When the residue is ignited the organic matter gets oxidized leaving the inorganic residue or ash. Thus the difference in weight of the residue before and after ashing gives the weight of crude fibre.
