This study was conducted to determine whether the storage conditions and the levels of psyllium in the diet modulate its hypocholesterolemic effects. Seventy-five male Sprague-Dawley rats, age 90 d, were randomly divided into five treatment groups and were fed cholesterol-containing diets for 21 d. Diets included 10% cellulose (control); 5 or 10% psyllium stored 8 mo at 5 degrees C (PS5); or 5 or 10% psyllium stored 8 mo at 40 degrees C (PS40). The higher storage temperature caused a gradual… CONTINUE READING
