In order to estimate the linoleic acid requirement of the rat, four groups of weanling male Wistar-Rats, 18 animals each, were fed isoenergetic semi-synthetic diets containing 14 cal% fat. The linoleic acid content (as linoleic acid methyl ester) amounted to 0; 0.5; 1.3 and 4.0% of total energy intake. The experiment lasted 14 weeks. The parameters analysed… (More)
