Acknowledgments

The Panel on the Definition of Dietary Fiber, the Standing Committee on the Scientific Evaluation of Dietary Reference Intakes, and the Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) staff are grateful for the time and effort of the many contributors to the report and the workshop and meetings leading up to the report.
