Propionate inhibits incorporation of colonic [1,2-13C]acetate into plasma lipids in humans.

Abstract

Acetate and propionate, produced during colonic fermentation of unabsorbed carbohydrate, may influence systemic lipid metabolism. As a preliminary study to see whether colonic acetate is incorporated into plasma lipids and whether propionate inhibits this process, 5 healthy males were studied after fasting overnight. They were given, in random order, 12.5… (More)
