Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) is the most common measure of fiber used for animal feed analysis, but it does not represent a unique class of chemical compounds. NDF measures most of the structural components in plant cells (i.e. lignin, hemicellulose and cellulose), but not pectin.

Crude Fiber (CF): Crude fiber is a traditional measure of fiber content in feeds. Neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber (ADF) are more useful measures of feeding value, and should be used to evaluate forages and formulate rations.

Neutral detergent insoluble nitrogen (NDIN) is the nitrogen remaining in the neutral detergent fiber residue and, while some occurs naturally in all plant material, is generally considered to be an estimate of heat damage occurring

In the scientific literature, various researchers described different methods for the analysis of crude fiber, fractionation, acid detergent fiber (ADF), neutral detergent fiber (NDF), and enzymatic determination of dietary fiber. Crude fiber determination is perhaps the oldest one based on alkali and acid digestion.

In recent years, commercial forage testing laboratories have begun to evaluate the neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) as well as NDF with acid detergent fiber (ADF). Although ADF and NDF are good indicators of fiber contents in forages, they do not measure how digestible that fiber is.

Quality evaluation is based on deterrnination of neutral detergent fiber (NDF, for intake), and in vitro digestible dry matter or acid detergent fiber (ADF, for digestibility) using wet chemistry or near infrared reflectance
