  • The fiber-rich fractions including enzyme treated insoluble dietary fiber, alcohol insoluble solid, and water insoluble solid were prepared from the peel of soft ripe persimmon, and to evaluate and compare the yields, proximate compositions, monosaccharide profiles, and functional properties. The results showed that uronic acid was the main sugar followed by glucose, which indicated that all insoluble fibers were mainly composed of pectic substances and cellulose. The presence of xylose and fucose indicated the occurrence of hemicellulose. All fiber-rich fractions were exhibited high yield and functional properties. Thus, the peel of ripe persimmon could be used as fiber supplements.
