Objective: To determine whether healthy males who consumed increased amounts of dietary stearic acid compared with increased dietary palmitic acid exhibited any changes in their platelet aggregability, platelet fatty acid profiles, platelet morphology, or haemostatic factors.Design: A randomized cross-over dietary intervention.Subjects and interventions: Thirteen free-living healthy males consumed two experimental diets for 4 weeks with a 7 week washout between the two dietary periods.

Short-term diets enriched in stearic or palmitic acids do not alter plasma lipids, platelet aggregation or platelet activation status
TLDR
Use of commonly available foods led to a 27% increase in stearic acid (diet S) and a 19% increase on diets S and P respectively, and no significant differences between the two diets in plasma lipoprotein concentrations, platelet aggregation or platelet activation status. Expand
Influence of dietary stearic acid enrichment on individual platelet phospholipid fatty acid composition
It is widely accepted that stearic acid, as opposed to saturated fats in general, is not hypercholesterolemic. In addition, stearic acid enriched diets have previously been shown to reduce plateletExpand
Stearic, oleic, and linoleic acids have comparable effects on markers of thrombotic tendency in healthy human subjects.
TLDR
The results do not suggest that stearic acid is highly thrombogenic compared with oleic and linoleic acids. Expand
Influence of stearic acid on hemostatic risk factors in humans
TLDR
The present investigations did not find dietary stearic acid to be more thrombogenic, in either fasting effectsCompared with other longchain FA, or in acute effects compared with dietary unsaturated FA, including trans monounsaturated FA. Expand
Postprandial activation of hemostatic factors: role of dietary fatty acids.

  • 2005
Intake of dietary fat is an important determinant of the plasma concentration of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins, and the degree of alimentary lipemia is reported to have effects on hemostaticExpand
Comparison of diets enriched in stearic, oleic, and palmitic acids on inflammation, immune response, cardiometabolic risk factors, and fecal bile acid concentrations in mildly hypercholesterolemic postmenopausal women-randomized crossover trial.
TLDR
Dietary stearic acid and oleic acid had similar effects on fasting LDL-cholesterol and non-HDL-ch cholesterol concentrations and more favorable ones than palmitic acid, suggesting there should be a reassessment of current SFA dietary guidance and Nutrient Facts panel labeling. Expand
Cardiovascular disease risk of dietary stearic acid compared with trans, other saturated, and unsaturated fatty acids: a systematic review.
TLDR
The replacement of TFA with STA compared with other saturated fatty acids in foods that require solid fats beneficially affects LDL cholesterol, the primary target for CVD risk reduction; unsaturated fats are preferred for liquid fat applications. Expand
Palmitic Acid Versus Stearic Acid: Effects of Interesterification and Intakes on Cardiometabolic Risk Markers—A Systematic Review
TLDR
Compared with palmitic acid, stearic acid lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, which is a well-known risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD), but its effects on other cardiometabolic risk markers have been studied less extensively. Expand
Dietary Stearic Acid Leads to a Reduction of Visceral Adipose Tissue in Athymic Nude Mice
TLDR
Dietary stearic acid leads to dramatically reduced visceral fat likely by causing the apoptosis of preadipocytes, and was associated with decreased cellular inhibitor of apoptosis protein-2 (cIAP2) and increased Bax gene expression. Expand
Unfavourable plasma and erythrocyte phospholipid fatty acid profile in elite amateur boxers
TLDR
The results show two potentially unfavourable main features of the FA profile of boxers, that is, a higher n–6/n–3 ratio in plasma PL and a higher percentage of SFA in both plasma and erythrocyte phospholipids compared to controls. Expand

Coagulation and fibrinolysis factors in healthy subjects consuming high stearic or trans fatty acid diets.
TLDR
It can be concluded that as far as coagulation and fibrinolysis are concerned there is no need to differentiate between stearic acid or trans monoenoic fatty acids. Expand
Effects of diets containing high or low amounts of stearic acid on plasma lipoprotein fractions and fecal fatty acid excretion of men.
TLDR
Feed diets containing about two times the usual amount of stearic acid consumed in the United States, contributed to an increase in plasma lipoprotein concentrations at 40 d from an earlier decrease at 20 d, demonstrating that stable cholesterol concentrations appears to vary depending on the kind of saturated fatty acids present in the diet. Expand
Acute effect of high-fat meals rich in either stearic or myristic acid on hemostatic factors in healthy young men.
TLDR
An acute prothrombotic effect of fats high in myristic and stearic acid was not confirmed and key variables of blood aggregation, coagulation, and fibrinolysis were studied. Expand
Similar effects of diets rich in stearic acid or trans-fatty acids on platelet function and endothelial prostacyclin production in humans.
TLDR
Similar effects of C18:0 and trans-FA diets on platelet activation and endothelial PGI2 production are indicated and in vitro production of thromboxane B2 by platelets as well as urinary excretion of beta-thromboglobulin were similar after both diets. Expand
Effect of dietary stearic acid on plasma cholesterol and lipoprotein levels.
TLDR
It is concluded that stearic acid appears to be as effective as oleic acid in lowering plasma cholesterol levels when either replaces palmitic Acid in the diet. Expand
Fat high in stearic acid favorably affects blood lipids and factor VII coagulant activity in comparison with fats high in palmitic acid or high in myristic and lauric acids.
TLDR
In conclusion, intake of shea butter high in stearic acid favorably affects blood lipids and factor VII coagulant activity in young men, compared with fats high in saturated fatty acids with 12-16 carbons. Expand
Effects of total fat content and fatty acid composition in diet on factor VII coagulant activity and blood lipids.
TLDR
Low fat diets may reduce the risk for ischemic heart disease without lowering of cholesterol levels by eliminating states of hypercoagulability such as elevated factor VII coagulant activity. Expand
Chocolate feeding studies: a novel approach for evaluating the plasma lipid effects of stearic acid.
TLDR
These findings indicate that stearic acid is not hypercholesterolemic as are the other long-chain SFAs and that isoenergetic substitution of one milk chocolate bar per day for a high-carbohydrate snack in a National Cholesterol Education Program/American Heart Association Step 1 Diet does not adversely affect the cholesterol-lowering response.

Effects of diets high in saturated fatty acids, canola oil, or safflower oil on platelet function, thromboxane B2 formation, and fatty acid composition of platelet phospholipids.
TLDR
Both oil-based diets had short-term beneficial effects on platelet function but the effect of canola oil persisted longer than both unsaturated-fatty-acid diets. Expand
Platelet functions in relation to dietary fats in farmers from two regions of France.
TLDR
To determine whether the long-term feeding of dietary fats affect platelet functions in man, platelet aggregation and clotting activity of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Platelet-poor plasma and of washed platelets were studied in a mobile-laboratory in 44 healthy male farmers from two French regions.
