..Acetate and propionate are the main fermentation products and are produced concurrently with polysaccharide depletion. Butyrate, however, is produced more slowly consistent with it being a secondary metabolite. ..

..Thus intermolecular interactions between SDF and BS depend on both SDF source and its molecular weight and may occur alone or in combination. ..

..We demonstrate that FTIR is a tool that can quantitatively probe short range interactions in starch structure. However, the assumptions of linear relationships between starch ordered structure and peak ratios are overly simplistic. ..
