Method Reference:

Carbohydrates are calculated based on the following tests and their respective method references: Moisture (method is matrix dependent), Ash (AOAC 923.03), Fat (by gas chromatography (AOAC 996.06) or by hydrolysis/extraction (AOAC 933.05; 922.06; 948.15; 925.32; 950.54; 905.02; 920.111; 945.48G; 920.115F; 932.06; 920.09; 952.06), Protein (AOAC 968.06) and, optionally, Insoluble Dietary Fiber (AOAC 991.43). A value for available carbohydrates (carbohydrates – Insoluble Dietary Fiber) will be provided when a test for Insoluble Dietary Fiber is requested in addition to moisture, ash, fat by gas chromatography and protein.


Method Description:

Carbohydrates are determined by the following calculations:
Carbohydrates = 100 – (Moisture) – (Ash) – (Total Fat) – (Protein) Carbohydrates, available = 100 – (Moisture) – (Ash) – (Total Fat) – (Protein) – (Insoluble Dietary Fiber)
