Several approaches are currently in use for calculating metabolizable energy of mixed diets from the foods and nutrients they contain. This study compares the metabolizable energy content of six low fiber and one high fiber diet as calculated by conventional procedures (ie, using Atwater's general factors, Merrill and Watts specific factors, and the British procedure where the monosaccharide equivalent of available carbohydrates is multiplied by 3.75 kcal/g) with values for metabolizable energy… CONTINUE READING
