  1. a Degree of acetylation calculated by saponification and quantification of acetic acid using HPLC. Four individual measurements were made, with a standard deviation of < 10%
  2. b Carbohydrate composition (mol%), quantified with HPAEC-PAD. Duplicate measurements were made, with a standard deviation of < 7%, except for KGM Xyl, which had a standard deviation of 48%
