A total of 37 miniature swine (Sus scrofa) was fed with three diets of 9% fat content, differing only in the quality of the fat source (sunflower oil, olive oil and lard fat). Three groups of animals were fed for a 3 month period, and three other groups were fed for a 12 month period. After the two experimental periods, the influence of the diet on serum lipids and serum fatty acids was studied. In the short term, the serum cholesterol level was higher in the lard group, but with time, it… CONTINUE READING
