Effect of inulin incorporated processed cheese spread on lipid profile of blood serum and liver in rats

Effect of inulin incorporated processed cheese spread on lipid profile of blood serum and liver... In the present study, the hypocholesterolemic effect of a newly developed functional inulin incorporated processed cheese spread (IPCS) has been evaluated using rat model. After acclimatization period, group 1 (control) was fed with a synthetic diet, whereas groups 2, 3, and 4 were fed with a cholesterol-enriched diet (CED) for 30 days to increase blood cholesterol level. Then, groups 2, 3, and 4 were, respectively, fed with synthetic diet, control cheese spread, and IPCS for 30 days. It was observed that in group 4, serum total, LDL, VLDL cholesterol, and atherogenic index decreased, and the decrease in liver cholesterol and triglycerides was also significantly higher in comparison to other groups. It was also noticed that due to CED feeding, the liver, spleen, and heart weight increased whereas feeding IPCS showed reduction in weight of those organs due to reduction in deposition of triglycerides and cholesterol. The overall findings validated the hypocholesterolemic effect of the developed IPCS. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Dairy Science & Technology Springer Journals

Abstract

In the present study, the hypocholesterolemic effect of a newly developed functional inulin incorporated processed cheese spread (IPCS) has been evaluated using rat model. After acclimatization period, group 1 (control) was fed with a synthetic diet, whereas groups 2, 3, and 4 were fed with a cholesterol-enriched diet (CED) for 30 days to increase blood cholesterol level. Then, groups 2, 3, and 4 were, respectively, fed with synthetic diet, control cheese spread, and IPCS for 30 days. It was observed that in group 4, serum total, LDL, VLDL cholesterol, and atherogenic index decreased, and the decrease in liver cholesterol and triglycerides was also significantly higher in comparison to other groups. It was also noticed that due to CED feeding, the liver, spleen, and heart weight increased whereas feeding IPCS showed reduction in weight of those organs due to reduction in deposition of triglycerides and cholesterol. The overall findings validated the hypocholesterolemic effect of the developed IPCS.
