It has the brown hue of the most intense varieties of food: few would dare to eat something so deep a mahogany that it makes one think of fat saturated to the furthest mortal end, to the point of absolute indigestibility.

Although not studied in the present experiment, few researchers attributed low utilisation of gluten proteins on account of relatively high heat-damaged acid detergent insoluble N (ADIN) fraction, despite some workers concluded that ADIN level and CP indigestibility is not a one-to-one relationship [22].
The indigestible fraction--which is a measure of the level of indigestibility of a food--in black beans has been shown to be greater than the indigestible fraction in some other beans such as lentils and chickpeas.
The formulas described by Sakomura and Rostagno (2007) were applied to calculate the concentrations of chromium oxide present in the digesta and in the diet, as well as the indigestibility factor.
