Feeding medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) is reported to result in less weight gain as fat than feeding long-chain triglycerides (LCT). In this experiment, fatty acid metabolism was studied in hepatocytes isolated from rats fed high fat diets containing MCT (70.9% of total energy), LCT (72.3% total energy) or a low fat (LF) (10.8% total energy). In the MCT… CONTINUE READING
