Emulsification and fatty acid chain length affect the kinetics of [14C]-medium-chain triacylglycerol utilization by neonatal piglets.

Abstract

In vivo oxidation kinetics of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) composed of [1-14C]hexanoate (tri-6:0) or [1-14C]octanoate (tri-8:0) were compared after being fed to day-old piglets (1.4 kg; n = 4/treatment). Animals were fitted with arterial and oro-gastric catheters and placed into respiration chambers held at 35 degrees C. The radiolabeled MCT were fed in… (More)
