  • Rats were fed lard or n-3 fatty acid-supplemented diets ad libitum to study whole body oxidation of lipid and carbohydrate. One group of male rats was fed 21% fat (by weight) containing 19.5% lard and sufficient amounts of essential fatty acids (1.5%). Another group of rats had 6.5% of the lard replaced by ethyl esters of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The rats were fed these diets for 6-8 weeks. Body weight gain was similar for the two groups and absorption of fat… CONTINUE READING
