ABSTRACT: A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method is described for determination of the ratio of β -d-mannuronic acid to α-l-guluronic acid (M/G ratio) indietary fibre of edible seaweeds. Total dietary fibre (TDF) content was determined gravimetrically. The TDF fraction was hydrolysed with 12 m and 1 m H2SO4, then neutralized with AG 4 × 4 resin. The uronic acids were separated in a Tracer Extrasil SAX 5 µm column (25 cm × 4 mm) at 35°C, with 2 mm KH2PO4 containing 5% methanol as mobile phase at a flow rate of 1.5 mL/min. The detection wavelength was UV 210nm. The chromatographic identifications of β -d-mannuronic acid and α-l-guluronic acid were confirmed by liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LCMS). The method precision was 1.4% for β -d-mannuronic acid and 3.5% for α-l-guluronic acid. The method was used to determine M/G ratio in canned seaweeds (Saccorhiza polyschides and Himanthalia elongata) and in dried seaweeds (H. elongata, Laminariaochroleuca, Undaria pinnatifida, Palmaria sp. and Porphyra sp.).

INTRODUCTION
Dietary fibre is a complex plant material resistant to digestion by enzymes in the human digestive tract (Rojas, 1994). The principal sources of dietary fibre arecell-wall components (cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and pectic substances) and non-structural components (gums and mucilages), as well as industrial additives (modified cellulose, modified pectins, gums and algal polysaccharides); (Grigelmo-Miguel et al., 1999). Dietary fibre can be classified into two groups, on the basis of hydrosolubility: the soluble fraction and the insoluble fraction, each withdifferent physiological effects (Lahaye, 1991). The importance of dietary fibre for health (particularly with regard to diabetes, obesity, colonic cancer, constipation and hypercholesterolaemia) has been extensively documented (Grigelmo-Miguel et al., 1999). In parts of Asia, seaweed has constituted a highly valued food for thousands of years. In Europe and North America, the use of seaweed as food isless

widespread, and indeed in most regions seaweed consumption declined dramatically during the twentieth century as standards of living improved. More recently, however, seaweeds have been increasingly recognized as healthy and attractive foods(Pak and Araya, 1996). Seaweed dietary fibre has a high proportion of soluble fibre. In red seaweeds (Rhodophyta) the soluble fraction is principally composed of sulphated galactans such as agar or carrageenans, while in brown seaweeds (Phaeophyta) the soluble fraction is principally composed of alginates, fucans and laminarin; in both cases, the insoluble fraction is basically composed of...
