Dietary linoleate was effective to increase LDL fluidity in adult men but did not significantly influence VLDL or HDL fluidities. Lipoproteins were isolated ultracentrifugally from plasma of sixteen healthy, free living male volunteers consuming controlled diets formulated from typical U.S.A. foods to have 35 energy % fat with 10 g (diet L) or 30 g (diet H) linoleate per day, 30-50 g saturated fatty acids/day and the balance mainly monounsaturated fatty acids.
