Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (1/8527)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Dietary control of triglyceride and phospholipid synthesis in rat liver slices. (2/8527)

1. The effect of dietary manipulation on the synthesis of triglycerides and phospholipids was investigated by determining the incorporation of labeled long-chain fatty acid or glycerol into these lipids in liver slices derived from normally fed, fasted, and fat-free refed rats. 2. Triglyceride synthesis was affected markedly by the dietary regime of the animal; the lowest rates were measured with fasted rats, and the highest ones with fat-free refed rats. 3. In contrast to triglyceride synthesis, phospholipid synthesis occured at virtually constant rates regardless of the dietary conditions. 4. Addition of large amounts of fatty acid to the incubation mixture resulted in a marked stimulation of triglyceride synthesis, whereas phospholipid synthesis was affected to a much smaller extent. 5. These results indicate that the synthesis of triglycerides and that of phospholipids are controlled independently, and that the availability of fatty acid in the cell contributes to the control of triglyceride synthesis.  (+info)

Diet and risk of ethanol-induced hepatotoxicity: carbohydrate-fat relationships in rats. (3/8527)

Nutritional status is a primary factor in the effects of xenobiotics and may be an important consideration in development of safety standards and assessment of risk. One important xenobiotic consumed daily by millions of people worldwide is alcohol. Some adverse effects of ethanol, such as alcohol liver disease, have been linked to diet. For example, ethanol-induced hepatotoxicity in animal models requires diets that have a high percentage of the total calories as unsaturated fat. However, little attention has been given to the role of carbohydrates (or carbohydrate to fat ratio) in the effects of this important xenobiotic on liver injury. In the present study, adult male Sprague-Dawley rats (8-10/group) were infused (intragastrically) diets high in unsaturated fat (25 or 45% total calories), sufficient protein (16%) and ethanol (38%) in the presence or absence of adequate carbohydrate (21 or 2.5%) for 42-55 days (d). Animals infused ethanol-containing diets adequate in carbohydrate developed steatosis, but had no other signs of hepatic pathology. However, rats infused with the carbohydrate-deficient diet had a 4-fold increase in serum ALT levels (p < 0.05), an unexpectedly high (34-fold) induction of hepatic microsomal CYP2E1 apoprotein (p < 0.001), and focal necrosis. The strong positive association between low dietary carbohydrate, enhanced CYP2E1 induction and hepatic necrosis suggests that in the presence of low carbohydrate intake, ethanol induction of CYP2E1 is enhanced to levels sufficient to cause necrosis, possibly through reactive oxygen species and other free radicals generated by CYP2E1 metabolism of ethanol and unsaturated fatty acids.  (+info)

Comparative hypocholesterolemic effects of five animal oils in cholesterol-fed rats. (4/8527)

The hypocholesterolemic efficacy of various animal oils was compared in rats given a cholesterol-enriched diet. After acclimatization for one week, male F344 DuCrj rats (8 weeks of age) that had been fed with a conventional diet were assigned to diets containing 5% of oil from emu (Dromaius), Japanese Sika deer (Cervus nippon yesoensis, Heude), sardine, beef tallow, or lard with 0.5% cholesterol for 6 weeks. After this feeding period, the concentrations of serum total cholesterol and of very-low-density lipoprotein + intermediate-density lipoprotein + low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol in the sardine oil group were significantly lower than those in the other groups. The serum high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol concentration in the Japanese Sika deer oil group was significantly higher than that in the other groups. The atherosclerotic index and liver cholesterol concentration in the sardine oil and Japanese Sika deer oil groups were significantly lower than those in the other groups. The fecal cholesterol excretion by the Japanese Sika deer oil group was significantly higher than that of the other groups, except for the sardine oil group, and the fecal bile acid excretion by the sardine oil group was significantly higher than that of the other groups, except for the lard group. These results suggest that Japanese Sika deer oil reduced the atherosclerotic index and liver cholesterol concentration in the presence of excess cholesterol in the diet as well as sardine oil did by increasing the excretion of cholesterol from the intestines of rats.  (+info)

Manipulation of the type of fat consumed by growing pigs affects plasma and mononuclear cell fatty acid compositions and lymphocyte and phagocyte functions. (5/8527)

To investigate the immunological effect of feeding pigs different dietary lipids, 3-wk-old, weaned pigs were fed for 40 d on one of five diets, which differed only in the type of oil present (the oil contributed 5% by weight of the diet and the total fat content of the diets was 8% by weight). The oils used were soybean (control diet), high-oleic sunflower oil (HOSO), sunflower oil (SO), canola oil (CO), and fish oil (FO; rich in long-chain [n-3] polyunsaturared fatty acids). There were no significant differences in initial or final animal weights, weight gains, or health scores among the groups. There were no significant differences in the concentration of anti-Escherichia coli vaccine antibodies in the gut lumens of pigs fed the different diets. The fatty acid composition of the diet markedly affected the fatty acid composition of the plasma and of mononuclear cells (a mixture of lymphocytes, monocytes, and macrophages) prepared from the blood, lymph nodes, or thymus. The FO feeding resulted in a significant increase in the number of circulating granulocytes. The FO feeding significantly decreased the proportion of phagocytes engaged in uptake of E. coli and decreased the activity of those phagocytes that were active. The proliferation of lymphocytes in cultures of whole blood from pigs fed the HOSO, SO, or FO diets was less than in those from pigs fed the CO diet. Proliferation of lymph node lymphocytes from SO- or FO-fed pigs was less than that from control, CO-, or HOSO-fed pigs. The natural killer cell activity of blood lymphocytes from pigs fed the FO diet was significantly reduced compared with those from pigs fed the CO diet. The concentration of PGE2 in the medium of cultured blood, lymph node, or thymic mononuclear cells was lower if the cells came from pigs fed the FO diet. Thus, the type of oil included in the diet of growing pigs affects the numbers and functional activities of immune cells in different body compartments.  (+info)

Lipoprotein lipase expression level influences tissue clearance of chylomicron retinyl ester. (6/8527)

Approximately 25% of postprandial retinoid is cleared from the circulation by extrahepatic tissues. Little is known about physiologic factors important to this uptake. We hypothesized that lipoprotein lipase (LpL) contributes to extrahepatic clearance of chylomicron vitamin A. To investigate this, [3H]retinyl ester-containing rat mesenteric chylomicrons were injected intravenously into induced mutant mice and nutritionally manipulated rats. The tissue sites of uptake of 3H label by wild type mice and LpL-null mice overexpressing human LpL in muscle indicate that LpL expression does influence accumulation of chylomicron retinoid. Skeletal muscle from mice overexpressing human LpL accumulated 1.7- to 2.4-fold more 3H label than wild type. Moreover, heart tissue from mice overexpresssing human LpL, but lacking mouse LpL, accumulated less than half of the 3H-label taken up by wild type heart. Fasting and heparin injection, two factors that increase LpL activity in skeletal muscle, increased uptake of chylomicron [3H] retinoid by rat skeletal muscle. Using [3H]retinyl palmitate and its non-hydrolyzable analog retinyl [14C]hexadecyl ether incorporated into Intralipid emulsions, the importance of retinyl ester hydrolysis in this process was assessed. We observed that 3H label was taken up to a greater extent than 14C label by rat skeletal muscle, suggesting that retinoid uptake requires hydrolysis. In summary, for each of our experiments, the level of lipoprotein lipase expression in skeletal muscle, heart, and/or adipose tissue influenced the amount of [3H]retinoid taken up from chylomicrons and/or their remnants.  (+info)

Increased insulin sensitivity and obesity resistance in mice lacking the protein tyrosine phosphatase-1B gene. (7/8527)

Protein tyrosine phosphatase-1B (PTP-1B) has been implicated in the negative regulation of insulin signaling. Disruption of the mouse homolog of the gene encoding PTP-1B yielded healthy mice that, in the fed state, had blood glucose concentrations that were slightly lower and concentrations of circulating insulin that were one-half those of their PTP-1B+/+ littermates. The enhanced insulin sensitivity of the PTP-1B-/- mice was also evident in glucose and insulin tolerance tests. The PTP-1B-/- mice showed increased phosphorylation of the insulin receptor in liver and muscle tissue after insulin injection in comparison to PTP-1B+/+ mice. On a high-fat diet, the PTP-1B-/- and PTP-1B+/- mice were resistant to weight gain and remained insulin sensitive, whereas the PTP-1B+/+ mice rapidly gained weight and became insulin resistant. These results demonstrate that PTP-1B has a major role in modulating both insulin sensitivity and fuel metabolism, thereby establishing it as a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity.  (+info)

Lower plasma levels and accelerated clearance of high density lipoprotein (HDL) and non-HDL cholesterol in scavenger receptor class B type I transgenic mice. (8/8527)

Recent studies have indicated that the scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI) may play an important role in the uptake of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesteryl ester in liver and steroidogenic tissues. To investigate the in vivo effects of liver-specific SR-BI overexpression on lipid metabolism, we created several lines of SR-BI transgenic mice with an SR-BI genomic construct where the SR-BI promoter region had been replaced by the apolipoprotein (apo)A-I promoter. The effect of constitutively increased SR-BI expression on plasma HDL and non-HDL lipoproteins and apolipoproteins was characterized. There was an inverse correlation between SR-BI expression and apoA-I and HDL cholesterol levels in transgenic mice fed either mouse chow or a diet high in fat and cholesterol. An unexpected finding in the SR-BI transgenic mice was the dramatic impact of the SR-BI transgene on non-HDL cholesterol and apoB whose levels were also inversely correlated with SR-BI expression. Consistent with the decrease in plasma HDL and non-HDL cholesterol was an accelerated clearance of HDL, non-HDL, and their major associated apolipoproteins in the transgenics compared with control animals. These in vivo studies of the effect of SR-BI overexpression on plasma lipoproteins support the previously proposed hypothesis that SR-BI accelerates the metabolism of HDL and also highlight the capacity of this receptor to participate in the metabolism of non-HDL lipoproteins.  (+info)

Title:High Fat Intake, Inflammation and Risk of Neuropsychiatric Disorders. VOLUME: 14 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Amir Abdoli*. Affiliation:Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran. Keywords:Neuropsychiatric disorders, inflammation, fat, salt, epidemiological studies, amplifier.. Abstract:Background: Epidemiological studies have shown the role of high dietary fat intake as a risk factor for Neuropsychiatric Disorders (NPDs). However, the exact mechanism of this phenomenon is unknown. Methods: An electronic search was performed using Scopus, PubMed and Google Scholar regarding the association of high fat intake and inflammatory reactions and their roles in the etiopathogenesis of NPDs. Results: The results indicate that high fat intake is involved in the development of severe inflammatory reactions. Inflammation is also involved in the pathophysiology of NPDs. Therefore, it is suggested that high fat intake might be involved in the development of NPDs ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Dietary fat influences on murine melanoma growth and lymphocyte-mediated cytotoxicity. AU - Erickson, Kent L. PY - 1984. Y1 - 1984. N2 - The effects of fat concentration and saturation on the growth of a B16 melanoma and lymphocyte-mediated cytotoxicity against the cells were studied with the use of inbred C57BL/6J and C3H/HeJ mice subjected to dietary manipulation before and after tumor transplantation. The tumor latency for mice initially given injections of 5 x 106 syngeneic B16 melanoma cells was significantly less for those mice fed at 20% fat concentration than those fed only the essential fatty acid (EFA) diet. When mice were given injections of 106 melanoma cells, the initiation time required for visible tumor growth in mice receiving the polyunsaturated fat (PUF) diet was significantly less than that in mice receiving the saturated fat (SF) diet. Cytolysis mediated by lymphocytes from diet-manipulated mice toward allogeneic B16 melanoma cells was greater for those mice ...

Food consumption refers to the amount of food available for human consumption as estimated by the FAO Food Balance Sheets. However the actual food consumption may be lower than the quantity shown as food availability depending on the magnitude of wastage and losses of food in the household, e.g. during storage, in preparation and cooking, as plate-waste or quantities fed to domestic animals and pets, thrown or given away. The dietary fat consumption per person is the amount of fat in food, in grams per day, for each individual in the total population.. ...
We attempted to ascertain the effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids by conducting two studies in normal young men, in which monounsaturated fats were replaced by polyunsaturated fats within the guidelines of the American Heart Association step 1 diet. Study A employed a randomized parallel design in which subjects first consumed an average American diet (AAD) containing 37% of calories as fat (saturated fat, 16% calories; monounsaturated fat, 14% calories; and polyunsaturated fat, 7% calories). After 3 weeks, one third of the subjects continued with the AAD, one third switched to a step 1 diet in which total fat calories were reduced to 30% by replacing saturated fat with carbohydrate, and one third switched to a polyunsaturated fat-enriched (Poly) diet with the same 30% fat calories and a reduction of monounsaturated fat from 14% to 8% and an increase of polyunsaturated fat from 7% to 13% of calories. The randomized period lasted 6 weeks. Total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ...
INTRODUCTION: Epidemiologic evidence for an association between colorectal cancer (CRC) risk and total dietary fat, saturated fat (SF), monounsaturated fat (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fat (PUFA) is inconsistent. Previous studies have used food frequency questionnaires (FFQ) to assess diet, but data from food diaries may be less prone to severe measurement error than data from FFQ. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study nested within seven prospective UK cohort studies, comprising 579 cases of incident CRC and 1996 matched controls. Standardized dietary data from 4- to 7-day food diaries and from FFQ were used to estimate odds ratios for CRC risk associated with intake of fat and subtypes of fat using conditional logistic regression. We also calculated multivariate measurement error corrected odds ratios for CRC using repeated food diary measurements. RESULTS: We observed no associations between intakes of total dietary fat or types of fat and CRC risk, irrespective of whether dietary data were

Data on the composition and intake of dietary fat are scarce in developing countries. Collection of reliable data should be encouraged. » Updated knowledge on dietary fat should be available. Analysts and local analytical capacity are needed to examine these constituents of the diet. » In determining the intake of dietary fat, the sometimes large differences between population groups have to be taken into account. » Energy deficiency is normally associated with a low-fat diet. To reach FAO/WHO recommendations, an increased fat intake may be necessary. In most cases, for the general population the fatty acid composition is less critical than the amount of total fat. » In general, dietary guidelines should not be automatically adopted from industrial countries but should take into account local health issues and positive features of the local dietary situation. » For groups in developing countries who have a high-fat intake, dietary guidelines similar to those of industrialized countries are ...
Of course, a primary role of dietary fats in the body is to be used for energy and it was assumed for many years that this was the only real role of fat, to provide energy storage. This was especially true of stored body fat which was thought for decades to provide only a passive storage depot of energy; rather it turns out that fat cells do much more in the body, producing hormones and such that affect myriad processes elsewhere in the body (a topic Ive discussed at length on the site and in my books).. Fats are also found in the cell membranes of various tissues (and the type of fat stored there can affect various cellular processes). As well, fats can be used to make eicosanoids, chemical messengers made from specific fatty acids that affect numerous biological processes. Specific dietary fats can also affect gene expression in certain cells, impacting on things like fat storage and oxidation and many others.. So what is dietary fat used for before turning into body fat?. ...
The chronic influence of dietary fat composition on obesity and insulin action is not well understood. We examined the effect of amount (20% vs 60% of total calories) and type (saturated vs polyunsaturated) of fat on insulin action and body composition in mature male rats. Six months of feeding a high fat (HF) diet led to obesity and impaired insulin action (determined by a euglycemic‐hyperinsulinemic clamp), neither of which were reversed by a subsequent 6 months of feeding a low fat (LF) diet. Within HF fed rats, type of fat did not affect body composition or insulin action. Six months of feeding a low fat diet led to only a slight decline in insulin action, with no difference due to type of dietary fat. From 6-9 months, insulin action became more impaired in LF rats fed the saturated diet than in LF rats fed the polyunsaturated diet. By 12 months, all groups were obese and had a similar impairment in insulin action. The amount and type of fat in the diet did not influence the overall degree ...
The objective of this study was to examine the effects of the intake of dietary fat upon colorectal cancer risk in a combined analysis of data from 13 case-control studies previously conducted in populations with differing colorectal cancer rates and dietary practices. Original data records for 5,287 cases of colorectal cancer and 10,470 controls were combined. Logistic regression analysis was used to estimate odds ratios (OR) for intakes of total energy, total fat and its components, and cholesterol. Positive associations with energy intake were observed for 11 of the 13 studies. However, there was little, if any, evidence of any energy-independent effect of either total fat with ORs of 1.00, 0.95, 1.01, 1.02, and 0.92 for quintiles of residuals of total fat intake (P trend = 0.67) or for saturated fat with ORs of 1.00, 1.08, 1.06, 1.21, and 1.06 (P trend = 0.39). The analysis suggests that, among these case-control studies, there is no energy-independent association between dietary fat intake ...
Total dietary fat intake might influence the risk of fracture; however, conflicting findings have been reported to date. Moreover, the type of fatty acids is also of vital importance.

The present study did not demonstrate that a low or modified fat diet reduced gastrointestinal symptoms induced by pelvic radiotherapy. Inadequate compliance with fat prescription, specifically the high level of self-imposed fat restriction in the normal fat group, may have confounded the results. The lack of achievement of fat point prescription in the normal fat group resulted in a mean difference between this group and the low fat group of only 5.9 fat points per day, which is equivalent to 29.5 g of fat or 1109 kJ (265 kcal) (i.e. a percentage difference of 11% in fat intake between groups) and was insufficient to demonstrate an effect.. Does this difficulty in achieving fat prescription call into question the study rationale? With respect to normal fat intake, previous data suggests that we were not seeking to change fat intake by an unachievable amount. An earlier study by our group (Armitage et al., 2008) indicated a mean daily fat intake for a mixed pelvic cohort of 77 g day−1 (SD: ...

The evidence clearly suggests that extremes in dietary fat should be avoided, and instead a diet moderate in total fat (25-35% energy) is preferable for the majority of individuals. Moreover, we now appreciate the importance of individualizing dietary fat recommendations within this range of total fat. With respect to cardiovascular disease, a diet higher in total fat (30-35% energy) affects the lipid and lipoprotein ...
Maternal dietary fat determines metabolic profile and the magnitude of endocannabinoid inhibition of the stress response in neonatal rat offspring
The study showed a protective effect of dietary consumption of polyunsaturated fat on the incidence of depression; there was a direct correlation between risk of depression and consumption of monounsaturated fat and trans unsaturated fat. Mediators of inflammation have been shown to interfere with neurotransmission in the brain, leading to depression; intake of trans-unsaturated and monounsaturated fats can aggravate this alteration. On the other hand, consumption of healthy fats like polyunsaturated fat can play a protective role in depression, as well as in metabolic diseases like diabetes or cardiovascular diseases like heart attack or heart failure. A similar positive correlation was also observed with the consumption of olive oil, in this study. However, further clinical trials would be required to substantiate the effects observed with regard to the effect of dietary fats on the risk of depression.. For More Information: ...
We prospectively evaluated fat intake as predictor of developing breast cancer (BC) subtypes defined by estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal growth factor 2 receptor (HER2), in a large (n = 337327) heterogeneous cohort of women, with 10062 BC case patients after 11.5 years, estimating BC hazard ratios (HRs) by Cox proportional hazard modeling. High total and saturated fat were associated with greater risk of ER(+)PR(+) disease (HR = 1.20, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.00 to 1.45; HR = 1.28, 95% CI = 1.09 to 1.52; highest vs lowest quintiles) but not ER(-)PR(-) disease. High saturated fat was statistically significantly associated with greater risk of HER2(-) disease. High saturated fat intake particularly increases risk of receptor-positive disease, suggesting saturated fat involvement in the etiology of this BC subtype.
In Newspaper debates on milk fats and vegetable oils in Finland, 1978 - 2013: An analysis of conflicts over risks, expertise, evidence and pleasure, we analysed debates over dietary fats in Helsingin Sanomat newspaper. We found four debated themes regarding the consumption of dietary fats: the health risks of saturated fats, expertise of the risks of fat consumption, adequate evidence of the risks of fat consumption and framing the fats question. In the early 2000s new emphasis began to emerge: personal experiences were increasingly presented as evidence of the effects of fats on human health, and the question of fat was framed either as one of enjoyment or of consumers right to choose, rather than being only a public health question.. In Dietary fat choices in Finland. Long-term trends and short-term changes, 1978-2014 we analysed consumption of different fat products (bread spreads and cooking fats) between 1978 - 2013. The study shows that instead of a uniform transformation from animal ...

C. Everett Koop was referring to high-fat foods. He believed that these foods were driving Americas coronary heart disease. Koop likened the danger of a high-fat diet to smoking cigarettes.. The Surgeon Generals conclusion is based on Ansel Keys belief that dietary fat led to coronary heart disease. Keys was a diet researcher after whom K-rations are named. Naturally he believed that a low fat diet was the answer. In the 1950s Keys published an analysis in which he claimed a connection between dietary fat and heart disease. What no one realized however is that Keys based his conclusion on select information from only six countries even though he had data from 22 countries available to him.. Two of the countries for which data was available, Mexico and Finland, had almost equal fat consumption. Yet the death rate from heart disease in Finland was 24 times that of Mexico! When all 22 countries data was analyzed, the apparent link between saturated fat and heart disease disappeared. Ancel Keys ...
Cancer:[3] An excess of fat and a shortage fiber in your diet can cause cancerous cellular growth, which can spread too many organs. The Office of the Surgeon General reports that overweight conditions resulting from too much fat consumption also increase your risk for developing cancer of the colon, gallbladder, kidney and reproductive organs.. Sadly, obesity is a growing disease in modern American society. Throughout the century, more families across the country take less time to cook at home, and spend more time eating at restaurants where food is more convenient (fast and cheap), but high fat content. Most of the foods served in fast food industry have been fried in oil, which makes its lipid content extremely high. Lack of education about these foods and how harmful too much lipid intake is for your body leads Americans to be the most obese country on the planet. Lack of balance of the macronutrients in the typical American diet leads to the disease we call obesity.. Recent studies show ...
The rat intragastric feeding model for alcoholic liver disease was used to study the effect of different diets on the fatty acid composition of liver microsomes. Rats were fed corn oil and ethanol (CE), saturated fat and ethanol (SF+E) or corn oil and dextrose (CD) for either 2 or 4 weeks. Rats were also fed saturated and dextrose (SF+D) for 4 weeks. In comparison with the CD diet, lower levels of arachidonic acid were detected in rats fed the CE, SF+E, and SF+D diets. However, the diet-induced changes in levels of arachidonic acid varied as a function of length of feeding. In rats fed the CE diet, we detected a significant decrease in the level of arachidonic acid compared with CD animals. Conversely, in rats fed the SF+E diet, the level of arachidonic acid increased compared with the SF+D group. In addition, a significant correlation was noted between levels of oleic acid and arachidonic acid in both corn oil (r=-0.85, p , 0.01) and saturated fat (r=-0.76, p , 0.05) groups. However, the ...
As an athlete, you need more dietary fats in your diet than the average, couch-potatoe, Joe.. The human body has a limited storage capacity of glycogen-a form of sucrose thats stockpiled in the liver, muscles, and bloodstream.. When these reserves get depleted-especially during endurance training-runners will hit the infamous wall without enough fat stores to take over and provide fuel for activity.. But here is the good news:. When your body runs out of glycogen, it will turn to its fat reserves to fuel the rest of the duration of the run. This is a good thing if youre looking to keep going strong for a long and sustained time.. Research has also suggested that the right intake of fats can help you stay injury free.. According to research conducted at the University of Buffalo, female runners who got about a third of their total daily calories from dietary fats were drastically less likely to get injured than those who consumed less fat.. Thats why the right intake of dietary fats is crucial ...
Hi Kate,. Many whole foods recommended on PHD are rich in fat. A days worth of protein from meats would provide 200-400 fat calories (up to 600 if fattier cuts are selected all the time); three egg yolks would provide 100 fat calories; half a large avocado would provide 130 fat calories; two tablespoons of coconut milk (not oil) would provide 50 fat calories; half a teaspoon of red palm oil (useful for vitamin E) would provide 20 fat calories; fermentation of vegetable fiber into short chain fats by the gut microbiome would provide about 50 fat calories. So far, were at 450-650 fat calories (up to 850 if fatty meats are selected all the time) without adding any oils or butter.. The 50-60% of calories from fat is for individuals who arent trying to loose weight; see Restriction of SaFA and MUFA for Weight Loss (page 141 of the book). For individuals who are trying to loose weight, about 500 fat calories are suggested. Comparing that with the numbers above, that means you should select leaner ...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease results from overconsumption and is a significant and increasing cause of liver failure. The type of diet that is conducive to the development of this disease has not been established, and evidence-based treatment options are currently lacking. We hypothesized that the onset of hepatic steatosis is linked to the consumption of a diet with a high fat content, rather than related to excess caloric intake. In addition, we also hypothesized that fully manifested hepatic steatosis could be reversed by reducing the fat percentage in the diet of obese mice. C57BL/6J male mice were fed either a purified rodent diet containing 10% fat or a diet with 60% of calories derived from fat. A pair-feeding design was used to distinguish the effects of dietary fat content and caloric intake on dietary-induced hepatic lipid accumulation and associated injury.

Women who lower their fat intake may have a reduced risk of estrogen receptor (ER)-positive/progesterone receptor (PR)-negative breast cancer. These findings were published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.. The relationship between diet and breast cancer has been studied extensively. In particular, the link between dietary fat intake and breast cancer risk has been a major focus of research, and its been thought that lower dietary fat might reduce risk of certain cancers, including breast cancer.. Between 1993 and 2005, the Womens Health Initiative (WHI) low-fat dietary modification (DM) evaluated eating patterns among 48,836 postmenopausal women. Participants in the intervention arm were assigned to a low-fat diet of 40% dietary fat, in which they reduced overall fat intake by 20%, reduced saturated fat intake by 7%, and increased fruit and vegetable intake to at least five servings per day and grains to at least six servings per day. They were compared with participants who ...
This study suggests that adults with type 1 diabetes require more insulin coverage for higher-fat meals than for lower-fat meals with identical carbohydrate content. These findings highlight the limitations of the carbohydrate-based method for calculating meal-time insulin dosage widely used in the intensive management of type 1 diabetes. The evidence that dietary fat increases glucose concentrations suggests that dietary fat intake is an important nutritional consideration in individuals with type 1 diabetes striving for tight glycemic control.. Our findings are consistent with those of previous studies indicating that higher-fat pizza meals cause late postprandial hyperglycemia necessitating increased insulin doses (11). The time course of the increase in the glucose concentrations after the higher-fat dinner meal is in keeping with clamp studies in nondiabetic humans indicating that physiological FFA elevations lead to insulin resistance within several hours (18). The finding that the glucose ...
Fat is included in swine diets as a source of energy when the cost is economically advantageous. However, digestible energy, metabolizable energy and net energy content estimates of dietary fat have been variable and have not been fully validated (Kil et al., 2011; Boyd et al., 2015). A lack of precision in defining the energy value of dietary fat could lead to losses for pork producers due to incorrect costing in diet formulations and disappointing performance outcomes.
Rationale: It is well established that increased intake of saturated fatty acids (SFA) is associated with incidence of cardiovascular heart disease (CHD). This effect is mediated by dietary saturated fats impact on fasting plasma cholesterol levels. Research is needed to clarify the association between dietary fatty acids and metabolic risk markers beyond lipid profile. World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended reduced intake of SFA with energy replacement from monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) or carbohydrates (CARB). However, limited evidence is available on the effects of dietary fatty acids on insulin sensitivity and secretion. The current study is designed to investigate the effects of SFA versus MUFA versus CARB on insulinemic response and lipid metabolism in healthy individuals with central obesity.. Study design: A randomized, crossover, single blind design study was carried out. The subjects consumed controlled diets for 6 weeks each. They were provided 3 meals per day during ...
Dietary saturated fat intake and risk of stroke: Systematic review and dose response meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies Do bear in mind these studes are based either on Food Frequency Questionaires or 24 hr dietary recall interviews.Neither of which are particularly reliable. It will be better when researchers actually collect data by asking trial participants to photo everything they eat though the day Im sure something like these apps could be adapted to record actual
Background: Since 1984 UK citizens have been advised to reduce total dietary fat intake to 30% of total energy and saturated fat intake to 10%. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence [NICE] suggests a further benefit for Coronary Heart Disease [CHD] prevention by reducing saturated fat [SFA] intake to 6% - 7% of total energy and that 30,000 lives could be saved by replacing SFAs with Polyunsaturated fats [PUFAs]. Methods: 20 volumes of the Seven Countries Study, the seminal work behind the 1984 nutritional guidelines, were assessed. The evidence upon which the NICE guidance was based was reviewed. Nutritional facts about fat and the UK intake of fat are presented and the impact of macronutrient confusion on public health dietary advice is discussed. Findings: The Seven Countries study classified processed foods, primarily carbohydrates, as saturated fats. The UK government and NICE do the same, listing biscuits, cakes, pastries and savoury snacks as saturated fats. Processed foods should be the
Indeed, both palmitoleic acid and SCD-1 index increase in response to SFA intake180, results also supported by animal data suggesting that dietary SFA induce SCD-1 activity and hence increase endogenous fatty acid synthesis of MUFA181. Moreover, in the Western societies, especially in elderly populations and decades ago, oleic acid is mainly provided by animal derived fat, and not from olive oil, which is the major source for MUFA in for example the Mediterranean countries. Thus, MUFA in cholesterol esters reflects dietary saturated fat intake rather than dietary MUFA intake14, suggesting that the present correlation between MUFA, SCD-1 index and CRP probably reflects high meat and dairy fat intake. SCD-1 index can also be influenced by a high carbohydrate intake (especially from sugars) via de novo lipogenesis182-184. This endogenous synthesis of fat is however believed to be small in Western populations due to the relatively high fat intake3,4,184,185. Whereas SCD-1 index shows a strong ...

Whilst the fats portion of our diet has been demonized in recent years, it is, in fact, an essential part of our nutrition. The challenge is facilitating a healthy, balanced intake of fatty acids. Changes in lifestyle, agricultural practices and dietary preference over recent decades have made achieving a healthy balanced lipid intake virtually impossible for large sections of the population, necessitating dietary supplementation of several vital lipids either by fortified f ...
Here we go again. A new study appears to link high fat intake to insulin resistance and postmeal blood sugar spikes. All study participants had Type 1 diabetes and were assigned to consume either two low-fat meals and one high-fat dinner or three low-fat meals. Researchers reported that those receiving the high-fat dinner required more insulin (12.6 units vs. 9 units for the low-fat dinner) and that their postprandial blood sugar and insulin levels were higher and stayed high for several hours after eating ...
Polyunsaturated Fats: Evidence shows that eating foods rich in polyunsaturated fats improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease. Polyunsaturated fats may also help decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes. Polyunsaturated fats also encompass essential fats, which are fats that your body requires to function properly but cant produce. Therefore, these essential fats, specifically omega-6 and omega-3 fats must be procured through your diet. Omega-6 and omega-3 fats are essential to maintaining cognitive function and for the overall growth and development of the body. Furthermore, the consumption of omega 3 fats has been shown to decrease your risk of coronary heart disease, depression, and arrhythmias. Foods high in polyunsaturated fat includea number of vegetable oils, including soybean oil, corn oil and safflower oil, as well as fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and trout. Other sources include some nuts and seeds such as walnuts and sunflower seeds ...

George, Think of the fats in your diet as a source of energy for your aerobic system. As you develop that system through easy training, and as those dietary fats are taken in, certain advantages are conferred. Heres a quick list, based on the scientific literature:. 1. Studies show that endurance capacity is increased in response to a high fat diet. 2. Researchers say that the capacity to use fats during prolonged training plays a more important role than previously thought. 3. Fats also play a significant role during high intensity, submax training and racing. 4. A low-fat diet (which is accompanied by a high carbohydrate diet) can inhibit the optimal refilling of the muscles fat storage. This is significant because these fat stores in the muscle are responsible for much of its energy supply. 5. High fat diets prevent lower blood sugar levels following max exercise tests (and high carbohydrate diets produce lower blood sugar levels following max exercise tests). 6. Dietary fat restriction ...
FAQ.. 1. What is a fat tax?. A. Denmark introduced the worlds first food fat tax. Foods are now subject to the tax if they contain more than 2.3% saturated fat. The tax applies to meats, including chicken and pork, cheese, butter, edible vegetable oil, margarine and other foods such as potato-based snacks. The tax, imposed on domestic and imported food, is levied on the weight of saturated fat contained in these foods, and charged at the rate of DKK13.50 (USD 2.4 or Rs 125 approx) per kg of saturated fat. This will cause the prices of high fat foods to go up and thus discourage people from buying them. A similar fat tax in India would more than double the price of palm oil and coconut oil both of which are very high in saturated fat.. Sources. 1. Artaud-Wild SM, Connor SL, Sexton G, Connor WE.

What is fat? Our bodies use fat for energy, for building and maintaining cells, and to absorb vitamins. Adults need only one-third of their daily calories to come from dietary fat.1 Fat is found in both plants and animal products and not all fats are the same.. Good Fats vs. Bad Fats Bad fats include both saturated fat, which is found in meat and dairy, and trans-fatty acids, which are present in foods processed with hydrogenated oils. High intakes of most saturated fats and trans-fatty acids raise cholesterol and put your heart health at risk. But some fats help. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats benefit heart health by lowering bad cholesterol.1,2. The Peanut Where can you find these good-for-you fats? The hall of fame for foods containing these better-for-you fats will include peanuts and tree nuts, avocados, olives, and some fish.

By Dr. Shilpi Bhadra Mehta. Good fat. Bad fat. High fat. Low fat. Saturated fat. Trans fat. Traditional fat. Manufactured fat.…Where does the madness end? With the abundance of seemingly contradictory advice out there, it can be beyond daunting to figure out which fats are friends and which fats are foes.. In recent decades saturated fat has been labeled not just our foe but our worst enemy, and the unfortunate fact is its all been based on faulty and outdated research from the 1950s by Ancel Keys, research that was riddled with inaccuracies and unreliable methods. Science has finally started to catch up in recent years and has highlighted the missing links connecting saturated fat to heart disease. It has, in fact, shown the reverse: saturated fat is beneficial to heart health.. The mantra that saturated fat must be removed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease has dominated dietary advice and guidelines for almost four decades. Yet scientific evidence shows that this advice has, ...
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate dietary effects of short-chain saturated (SCSFA), long-chain saturated (LCSFA), longchain monounsaturated (LCMFA), and long-chain polyunsaturated (LCPFA) fatty acids on growth and mineral status in male weanling rats. Two experiments were used, and the length of each experiment was four weeks. Two levels (5% and 10%) of dietary fat were used in each experiment. In Experiment 1 butyric and caproic acids (SCSFA), stearic and palmitic acids (LCSFA), oleic acid (LCMFA) and liinoleic and linolenic acids (LCPFA) were used to formulate four test diets. A corn oil reference diet was also included in Experiment 1. In Experiment 2 Iinoleic, linolenic, palmitic and stearic acids were used to formulate P/S ratios of 0.1, 0.4, 1.0, 4.0 and 8.0. Parameters used for evaluating animal responses included weight gain, hemoglobin, hematocrit, liver, kidney, spleen and testes concentrations of copper, iron, zinc and manganese and bone (femur and tibia) levels ...
How much fat can I eat?. Although the total amount of fat in your diet doesnt increase your LDL (bad) cholesterol level, it is best not to go higher than 35% of calories from fat-even if this is mostly good fats. Fat has more calories per gram than protein or carbohydrates (9 compared with about 4) making it likely that you will eat too many calories (and gain weight) if you eat a lot of fat. It is also difficult to stay within the limits for saturated fat and dietary cholesterol when you eat a high-fat diet.. How much fat do Americans eat?. The average American diet contains 33% of calories from fat. About 25% of Americans eat too much fat (more than 35% of calories) and fewer than 5% eat a low-fat diet (less than 20% of calories from fat). As a percentage of daily calories, fat intake decreased from an average of 36% in the early 1970s to 33% in 1999-2000. However, the actual amount of fat eaten per day increased from 73 grams (1989-1991) to 76 grams in the 1990s. This is because we are ...

Diets that are consistently high in saturated fat are linked to the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and insulin resistance, but its not clear how high fat foods initiate the changes that lead to disease.
It is speculated that high saturated fat very low carbohydrate diets (VLCARB) have adverse effects on cardiovascular risk but evidence for this in controlled studies is lacking. The objective of this study was to compare, under isocaloric conditions, the effects of a VLCARB to 2 low saturated fat high carbohydrate diets on body composition and cardiovascular risk. Eighty three subjects, 48 ± 8 y, total cholesterol 5.9 ± 1.0 mmol/L, BMI 33 ± 3 kg/m2 were randomly allocated to one of 3 isocaloric weight loss diets (6 MJ) for 8 weeks and on the same diets in energy balance for 4 weeks: Very Low Fat (VLF) (CHO:Fat:Protein; %SF = 70:10:20; 3%), High Unsaturated Fat (HUF) = (50:30:20; 6%), VLCARB (4:61:35; 20%) Percent fat mass loss was not different between diets VLCARB -4.5 ± 0.5, VLF-4.0 ± 0.5, HUF -4.4 ± 0.6 kg). Lean mass loss was 32-31% on VLCARB and VLF compared to HUF (21%) (P | 0.05). LDL-C increased significantly only on VLCARB by 7% (p | 0.001 compared with the other diets) but apoB was

The effects of dietary fats consisting of different fatty acids on lipolytic activity and body fat accumulation were studied in rats. Sprague-Dawley male rats were meal-fed an isoenergetic diet based on either beef tallow or safflower oil for 8 weeks. Lipolytic activities in epididymal and subcutaneous adipose tissues were lower in the beef tallow diet group than in the safflower oil diet group. Body fat accumulation was greater in rats fed the beef tallow diet versus the safflower oil diet. Norepinephrine (NE) turnover rates used as an index of sympathetic activities in adipose tissues were lower in the beef tallow diet group. beta-Adrenergic receptor binding was determined with [3H]dihydroalprenolol. Binding affinities of beta-receptors in adipose tissues were significantly lower in the beef tallow diet group. Membrane fluidities of adipose tissues were also lower in the beef tallow diet group. Membrane fluidities were correlated with the affinities of the beta-receptor. We believe from these ...

The aim of this thesis was to investigate how dietary fatty acids affect the risk for cardiometabolic disease, i.e. cardiovascular disease (CVD), type 2 diabetes and obesity. The overall hypothesis was that unsaturated fatty acids and especially the predominant polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) linoleic acid (LA), 18:2n-6, would decrease cardiometabolic risk compared with saturated fatty acids (SFAs), in line with current recommendations to partly replace dietary SFA with PUFA.. Papers I and V were observational studies based on the community-based cohort Uppsala Longitudinal Study of Adult Men (ULSAM). Adipose tissue fatty acid composition was determined as biomarker for dietary fat intake. Studies II, III and IV were randomised short-term interventions on human volunteers, in which different dietary fats were provided to the participants.. In 71-year-old men, adipose tissue LA and α-linolenic acid (18:3n-3) were associated with insulin sensitivity (euglycaemic clamp), although this ...
Research on dietary fat intake and its association with allergic reactions is an example -- it has been suspected that eating a lot of unsaturated fat, such as margarine, may be linked to nasal and dermal (skin-related) allergic reactions. In a recent study in Allergy, researchers evaluated the link between dietary fats and the risk of developing allergies. They examined 462 children, 3 to 18 years old, comparing the occurrence of allergies to dietary information. The children were studied over a nine-year period. The results indicated that prior to developing allergies, allergy sufferers had used more margarine and less butter than the other children. Also, the level of fatty acids obtained from fish was higher in non-allergic kids than in those with skin allergies. Providing too much margarine and not enough butter in your childs diet may be related to the development of allergies. Eating fish also may reduce allergy symptoms. More research needs to be done on a possible association between ...
Epidemiological studies indicate that caloric intake and dietary fat content influence colonic carcinogenesis. In rodents, caloric restriction reduces, and some fats increase, carcinogen-induced colon cancer incidence. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of caloric restriction on colonic cell proliferation (CCP) in carcinogen-treated or control rats fed low- or high-fat diets. F344 rats were treated with azoxymethane (15 mg/kg ×2) and then fed an isocaloric AIN 76A diet containing either 5 or 23% corn oil, ad libitum or calorie-restricted to 70 or 80% of the kilocalories consumed by ad libitum rats. Biopsies of the distal colon were taken at 10 and 20 weeks, and rats were sacrificed at 21 or 34 weeks on the experimental diets. Distal CCP was determined by microautoradiography after [3H]thymidine labeling in vitro or presacrifice administration in vivo. The labeling index and number of labeled cells per crypt column were significantly reduced by caloric restriction at all ...
In the current study, we fed WHHL rabbits with two kinds of diets: HFFD (rich in sugar and fat with reduced protein and fibers) and standard chow diet (protein- and fiber-rich). Although both groups consumed an equal amount of calorie of each diet, HFFD feeding led to prominent IR accompanied by elevated plasma lipids, hepatic steatosis and adipose accumulation, even though the body weight was unchanged. Increased plasma levels of lipids are basically caused by high uptake of free fatty acids into the liver where they can be synthesized into VLDLs, which are accumulated in the plasma. At the same time, VLDL accumulation was further enhanced due to delayed catabolism of VLDLs in the context of deficiency of LDL receptors in WHHL rabbits. It should be pointed out that high-fat diet feeding did not increase plasma lipids in wild-type rabbits which have normal LDL receptors [20]. This notion is further supported by our Triton experiments along with RT-PCR analysis showing that there was increased ...

One pathway by which endotoxemia and lipid peroxidation act in concert to promote alcoholic liver injury is via NF-κB. NF-κB is a ubiquitous transcription factor that is implicated in the activation of many genes, including those involved in alcoholic liver injury (May and Ghosh, 1997; Nanji et al., 1999). The results of this study confirm our previous finding that activation of NF-κB occurs in association with development of necroinflammatory changes in the liver (Nanji et al., 1999). In addition, we show that the reduction in necrosis and inflammation induced by treatment with saturated fatty acid is accompanied by a marked reduction of NF-κB activation. The saturated fatty acid-induced inhibition of NF-κB activation was accompanied by increased amounts of IκBα. The mechanism by which saturated fatty acids stabilize IκBα and suppress NF-κB activation remains to be elucidated, but a role for decreased levels of endotoxin and lipid peroxidation is likely. Although we did not, in the ...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading global cause of death, accounting for 17.3 million deaths per year. Preventive treatment that reduces CVD by even a small percentage can substantially reduce, nationally and globally, the number of people who develop CVD and the costs of caring for them. This American Heart Association presidential advisory on dietary fats and CVD reviews and discusses the scientific evidence, including the most recent studies, on the effects of dietary saturated fat intake and its replacement by other types of fats and carbohydrates on CVD. In summary, randomized controlled trials that lowered intake of dietary saturated fat and replaced it with polyunsaturated vegetable oil reduced CVD by ≈30%, similar to the reduction achieved by statin treatment. Prospective observational studies in many populations showed that lower intake of saturated fat coupled with higher intake of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat is associated with lower rates of CVD and of other ...

Consumers are becoming more aware of how to nutritionally provide for their pets which is leading to the demand for new pet foods such as the use of less processed diets and sustainable protein sources. Pet foods may be formulated with decreased starch to meet consumer demands for less processed diets. Fats and oils may be added to low starch diets to meet energy requirements, but little is known about its effects on canine health. The study objective was to evaluate the effects of feeding healthy adult dogs low carbohydrate, high-fat diets on apparent total tract digestibility, fecal characteristics, and overall health status. Eight adult Beagles were enrolled in a replicated 4x4 Latin Square design feeding trial. Dogs were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 dietary fat level treatments (T) within each period: 32% (T1), 37% (T2), 42% (T3), and 47% (T4) fat on a dry matter basis. Fat levels were adjusted with inclusion of canola oil added to a commercial diet. Each dog was fed to exceed their energy
Is dieting difficult for you? Due to Trans fats, dieting becomes very difficult for most of you. Trans fats can be the killer of all diets.. Trans fat is another name for unsaturated fat with trans isomer fatty acids. They can be monounsaturated or polyunsaturated.. The consumption of these fats can raise the level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which again increases the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD).. More than 12.5 million Americans have CHD and more than 500,000 die each year.. You will find the labels on the food products which contain Trans fat, so that you can avoid those foods. Avoiding trans fats will greatly help you in reducing the high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease.. These fats can be very dangerous to serious dieters as well as people that are not dieting. When you are following a nutritionally adequate diet then the trans fat intake should be as low as possible.. Basically, trans fat is developed when manufacturers add hydrogen to vegetable oil. This ...
Unsaturated fats have been shown to improve health when used in place of other fats. There are two types of unsaturated fats, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated, both of which are liquid at room temperature. Two types of polyunsaturated fat, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, cannot be produced by the human body, but play an essential role in brain development, skin and hair growth, bone health, maintaining a healthy reproductive system and even in regulating our metabolism. Plus, both types promote coronary health by lowering bad LDL cholesterol and raising good HDL cholesterol.. Dietary fats are an essential part of the human diet. Not only do they help us feel satisfied, they help the body use proteins and carbohydrates more efficiently. Fat also aids in the digestion of vitamins A, D, E and K. But as we know, not all fats are created equal. To increase your intake of unsaturated fats, try replacing other fatty foods with these 5 items:. 1. Olive Oil ...
It is known that intake of monounsaturated fat increases the concentration of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and reduces the glucose concentration1 and the degree of insulin resistance, at least in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Double bonds may be in either a cis or a trans isomer, depending on the geometry of the double bond. In the cis isomer, hydrogen atoms are on the same side of the double bond; whereas in the trans isomer, they are on opposite sides of the double bond (see trans fat). Saturated fats are useful in processed foods because saturated fats are less vulnerable to rancidity and usually more solid at room temperature than unsaturated fats. Unsaturated chains have a lower melting point, hence these molecules increase the fluidity of cell membranes. Although both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats can replace saturated fat in the diet, trans unsaturated fats should not. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats helps lower levels of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in the blood.[1] Trans unsaturated fats are an exception because the double bond stereochemistry predisposes the carbon chains to assume a linear conformation, which conforms to rigid packing as in plaque formation. The geometry ...
We all know about the common fats that different foods contain. Meat contains animal fat. Most breads and pastries contain vegetable oils, shortening or lard. Deep fried foods are cooked in heated oils. Fats are greasy and slick.. You commonly hear about two kinds of fats: saturated and unsaturated. Saturated fats are normally solid at room temperature, while unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature. Vegetable oils are the best examples of unsaturated fats, while lard and shortening (along with the animal fat you see in raw meat) are saturated fats. However, most fats contain a mixture. For example, above you see the label from a bottle of olive oil. It contains both saturated and unsaturated fats, but the saturated fats are dissolved in the unsaturated fats. To separate them, you can put olive oil in the refrigerator. The saturated fats will solidify and the unsaturated fats will remain liquid. You can see that the olive oil bottler even chose to further distinguish the unsaturated fats ...

Pork trim from each treatment was used to formulate sausage that contained two fat levels (25% and 35%), and two levels of added water (3% and 11%). Thiobarbituric acid values did not differ between the control, safflower oil or sunflower oil treatments and all treatments were acceptable after 10 weeks of storage. Microbial numbers increased with ...
Obesity results in abnormally high levels of triglyceride (TG) storage in tissues such as liver, heart, and muscle, which disrupts their normal functions. Recently, we found that lean mice challenged with high levels of dietary fat store TGs in cytoplasmic lipid droplets in the absorptive cells of the intestine, enterocytes, and that this storage increases and then decreases over time after an acute dietary fat challenge. The goal of this study was to investigate the effects of obesity on intestinal TG metabolism. More specifically we asked whether TG storage in and secretion from the intestine are altered in obesity. We investigated these questions in diet-induced obese (DIO) and leptin-deficient (ob/ob) mice. We found greater levels of TG storage in the intestine of DIO mice compared to lean mice in the fed state, but similar levels of TG storage after a 6-h fast. In addition, we found similar TG storage in the intestine of lean and DIO mice at multiple time points after an acute dietary fat challenge
Effects of low-fat high-carbohydrate and high-fat low-carbohydrate diets on visceral fat deposition and energy metabolism were investigated in rats and mice under an isocaloric feeding condition. Deposition of visceral fats was higher in animals fed a 21% fat diet compared with those fed a 7% fat diet. However, the difference was small. Difference in dietary fat types did not influence the extent of visceral fat deposition induced by a high fat diet. Hepatic triacylglycerol concentration was varied by the quantity and quality of dietary fats, but it did not relate to visceral fat deposition. These results suggest that an increase in visceral fat deposition induced by a high fat diet is gradually caused when dietary fat intake exceeds the upper limit of ability of fat expenditure in the body. ...
A study published in Clinical Nutrition by Labayen et al. has investigated the role played by dietary fat in the build-up of abdominal fat in adolescents. Previous studies have suggested that high intensity exercise might prevent the accumulation of fat and subsequently obesity, noting that physical activity increases fat oxidation. The scientists recruited a sub-sample of 224 Spanish adolescents who participated in the HELENA- CSS, an EU funded project involving adolescents from 10 European cities. To calculate energy and nutrient intake the participants reported 24 h dietary recall on two non-consecutive days within a period of 2 weeks. Body weight, height and BMI were measured and physical activity was objectively assessed by accelerometry. Labayen et al report that they found an association between the percentages of energy derived from fat intake and abdominal fat deposition, noting that this relationship was independent of physical activity, moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) ...
Results For patients who consumed the dietary portfolio high in monounsaturated fat, HDL cholesterol rose, whereas for those consuming the dietary portfolio low in monounsaturated fat, HDL cholesterol did not change. The 12.5% treatment difference was significant (0.12 mmol/L, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.05 to 0.21, p = 0.003). The ratio of total to HDL cholesterol was reduced by 6.5% with the diet high in monounsaturated fat relative to the diet low in monounsaturated fat (−0.28, 95% CI −0.59 to −0.04, p = 0.025). Patients consuming the diet high in monounsaturated fat also had significantly higher concentrations of apolipoprotein AI, and their C-reactive protein was significantly lower. No treatment differences were seen for triglycerides, other lipids or body weight, and mean weight loss was similar for the diets high in monounsaturated fat (−0.8 kg) and low in monounsaturated fat (−1.2 kg). ...
Four diets, supplemented with different fats of vegetable origin, were compared in a 4 X 4 Latin square design with eight primiparous Italian Friesian cows (two cows per cell). The four fats were: toasted full fat soy bean in diet WS; toasted full fat linseed in diet WL; calcium soap of palm oil in diet PS; and calcium soap of olive oil in diet OS. Scope of the trial was to study the effect of the four different fat sources on milk yield and composition and on the quality of milk fat in terms of safety for the consumer health, with particular attention to trans fatty acids and to conjugated linoleic acid isomers (CLA). Diet OS induced the highest milk yield (P , 0.05), while diet PS gave the fattest milk (P , 0.05), and the highest milk content of both saturated and medium chain fatty acids (P , 0.05). Saturated to unsaturated ratio of milk fat was decreased when cows were fed diet WS (P , 0.05), while the ratio was increased with cows fed on diet PS (P , 0.05). With a closely similar behaviour ...
OBJECTIVE-To evaluate the changes in circulating endotoxin after a high-saturated fat meal to determine whether these effects depend on metabolic disease state.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-Subjects (n = 54) were given a high-fat meal (75 g fat, 5 g carbohydrate, 6 g protein) after an overnight fast (nonobese control [NOC]: age 39.9 +/- 11.8 years [mean +/- SD], BMI 24.9 +/- 3.2 kg/m(2), n = 9; obese: age 43.8 +/- 9.5 years, BMI 33.3 +/- 2.5 kg/m(2), n = 15; impaired glucose tolerance [IGT]: age 41.7 +/- 11.3 years, BMI 32.0 +/- 4.5 kg/m(2), n = 12; type 2 diabetic: age 45.4 +/- 10.1 years, BMI 30.3 +/- 4.5 kg/m(2), n = 18). Blood was collected before (0 h) and after the meal (1-4 h) for analysis.. RESULTS-Baseline endotoxin was significantly higher in the type 2 diabetic and IGT subjects than in NOC subjects, with baseline circulating endotoxin levels 60.6% higher in type 2 diabetic subjects than in NOC subjects (P , 0.05). Ingestion of a high-fat meal led to a significant rise in endotoxin ...

During a follow up of 24 years, we identified 218 incident CRC cases. There was no association between PUFA intake and CRC. A positive linear relationship was established between SFA intake and CRC (HR = 1.02, 95% CI = 1.01-1.03). In participants with high dietary fiber intake (>median), PUFA intake was associated with an increased risk of CRC (HR = 2.12, 95% CI = 1.04-4.29 for the 4th quartile vs.1st quartile). Among subjects with low dietary fiber intake (< median), SFA intake was associated with higher CRC risk (HR = 1.52, 95% CI = 1.12 -2.06 for the 4th quartile vs.1st quartile). In contrast, among subjects with high fiber intake (> median), a negative linear relationship was observed between SFA intake and CRC (HR = 0.97, 95% CI = 0.95-0.995). Higher PUFA intake was associated with an increased risk of CRC in subjects with low serum cholesterol (PInteraction = 0.01 for n-3 PUFA and fiber intake; PInteracton = 0.05 for n-6 PUFA and serum cholesterol). ...

Our findings do not support the current recommendation to limit total fat intake to less than 30% of energy and saturated fat intake to less than 10% of energy, says study investigator Dr. Mahshid Dehghan of McMaster University in a news release. Limiting total fat consumption is unlikely to improve health in populations, and a total fat intake of about 35% of energy with concomitant lowering of carbohydrate intake may lower risk of total mortality. In fact, individuals with high carbohydrate intake, above 60% of energy, may benefit from a reduction in carbohydrate intake and increase in the consumption of fats.. The Prospective Urban-Rural Epidemiology (PURE) study looked at individuals aged 35 to 70 years, from low, middle, and high-income countries all around the world, with an average 7.4 year period of following up on participants.. What the researchers found called into question the conventional wisdom about nutrition.. The study showed those with the highest carbohydrate intake had a ...
Today margarine is found in many, many recipes. The housewife finds it an acceptable substitute for butter in frying, baking, eating and in making frostings. The margarine is inexpensive, has the same physical characteristics as butter such as texture, melting point, congeal point, flavor and taste. In addition, margarine has 15,000 U.S.P. units Vitamin A added per pound. Oftentimes winter butter or even summer butter does not meet this figure. Butter, of course, is made from animal fat while margarine is made from vegetable fat. Each contains milk, the perfect food. Animal fat increases blood cholesterol while vegetable fats reduce it. Margarine is lower in cholesterol while vegetable fats reduce it. Margarine is lower in cholesterol than butter as reported at the 1957 session of the Federation of Biological Societies, Chicago, Illinois. The study was made by Dr. Roslyn B. Alfin Slater of the University of Southern California School of Medicine who observed that the cholesterol count in the

In the study, the researchers fed mice a diet of either saturated, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats, and compared them to mice genetically designed to develop Alzheimers.. Within two months, the mice that were fed a saturated fat diet showed significant change in their blood vessels.. We saw a very substantial deterioration in the mice blood vessel architecture, says Mamo. But, we saw no deterioration in the mice fed monounsaturated or polyunsaturated diets.. The saturated fat mice also had more amyloid deposits in their brain than those fed the monounsaturated or polyunsaturated diets.. The researchers also found that the brains of the mice fed the saturated fat diet were remarkably similar to the Alzheimers mouse models. In mice that have been genetically manipulated to overproduce amyloid, we find exactly the same kind of pathology, says Mamo.. Using antibodies with a fluorescent tag the researchers were able to confirm that dietary fats are also found inside the amyloid ...
For years, doctors have said that theres little that can be done to prevent Alzheimers disease and other types of dementia, and to just hope for a pharmaceutical cure.

It has been known for many years that excessive consumption of saturated fats has proatherogenic properties, contrary to unsaturated fats. However, the molecular mechanism covering these effects is not fully understood. In this paper, we aimed to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) using RNA-sequencing, following feeding pigs with different sources of fat. After comparison of adipose samples from three dietary groups (rapeseed oil (n = 6), beef tallow (n = 5), coconut oil (n = 5)), we identified 29 DEGs (adjusted p-value < 0.05, fold change > 1.3) between beef tallow and rapeseed oil and 2 genes between coconut oil and rapeseed oil groups. No differentially expressed genes were observed between coconut oil and beef tallow groups. Almost all 29 DEGs between rapeseed oil and beef tallow groups are connected to neurodegenerative, cardiovascular diseases, or cancer (e.g., PLAU, CYBB, NCF2, ZNF217, CHAC1, CTCFL). Functional analysis of these genes revealed that they are associated with fluid
A process for removing free fatty acids (FFA) and preferably cholesterol from liquid anhydrous animal fats is described. The process uses a dilute solution of alkali metal base to form a salt of the FFA and then an alkali metal salt to precipitate the FFA from the animal fat. Preferably, a cyclodextrin is used in the process to remove cholesterol. Liquid vegetable fats are used in blends with the processed animal fat to produce a spreadable mixture for table use. The processed animal fat can be reconstituted to whole milk with the FFA and cholesterol removed for various commercial uses.

Trans fat is now linked with yet another troubling health concern: colon cancer. Recent studies are showing people who consume the most trans fat increase their risk of colon cancer by a staggering 86 percent. These findings are highly relevant considering that colon cancer is among the top three cancers affecting modern society. A 2008 study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found the more trans fat a person eats, the more pre-cancerous polyps occur in their colon. The 12-week study included 622 North Carolina residents who had colonoscopies in 2001 and 2002. Participants in the study were questioned in detail about their diet and level of physical activity. Those who consumed the most trans fat--averaging about 6.5 grams per day--were most likely to have increased colon polyps. Dr. Lisa C. Vinikoor of the University of North Carolina says the reason trans fat increases the risk of colon cancer is because it alters the balance of bile in the colon. She also says, These results ...
The authors found:. 1. Fish/shellfish intake, mostly due to fish high in omega-3 fatty acids and non-fried fish, was associated with a 20-27% lower risk of head and neck cancers and esophageal adenocarcinoma. 2. Long-chain omega-3 PUFA intake, of which the primary source is non-fried fish and shellfish, was associated with a 19-21% lower risk of head and neck cancers and esophageal adenocarcinoma. 3. Higher intake of long-chain omega-3 compared to long-chain omega-6 PUFAs was associated with a decreased risk of head and neck cancers and esophageal adenocarcinoma. 4. Fish and PUFA intake showed little to no association with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and gastric cancers [i]. ...

Fats in the diet can be of two kinds, visible and invisible fats. Visible fats are obtained from animal fats, such as fat in butter and meat, and those derived from vegetable fats like mustard, coconut etc. These fats obtained from animal sources are saturated and a risk for heart disease, as they seem to increase cholesterol in the blood. Unsaturated fats like polyunsaturated, are believed to help in lowering cholesterol levels. Most liquid vegetable oils are unsaturated, exceptions being coconut and palm oils.. Invisible fats are widely present in foodstuffs, such as milk, eggs, cereals and pulses. Many of these are an especially good source of EFA. Margarines and shortenings are produced by hydrogenation of vegetable oils like corn and soybean oils etc.. Hydrogenation is the process of hardening fats by artificially adding hydrogen at the double bonds, thus making the fatty acid less unsaturated. This process leads to formation of trans fatty acids, which again raise blood cholesterol and ...
Trans fats are a type of unsaturated fat. Think of them as the evil cousins of the healthy omega-3 fats in fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts.. Once upon a time, the only sources of trans fats were bacteria living in the forestomach of ruminants. As a result, beef, lamb, buffalo, deer, and dairy products have small amounts of trans fats. By the end of the 20th century, though, they were everywhere, thanks to the ingenuity of early 20th-century chemists who discovered that they could turn a liquid vegetable oil into a solid or semi-solid by bubbling hydrogen gas through it. Partially hydrogenated oils dont spoil or turn rancid as readily as non-hydrogenated fats and can withstand repeated heating without breaking down.. Those characteristics made trans fats a workhorse of the food industry. The FDA has estimated that in the late 1990s, 95% of prepared cookies, 100% of crackers, and 80% of frozen breakfast products contained trans fats. Frying oils used in restaurants were also rich in them.. The ...
Using the data from two large prospective studies of women and men in the United States, we found no association of fat intake with melanoma except for omega-6 fat intake. For SCC, we found higher risk associated with higher intake of polyunsaturated fat and omega-6 fat. Higher intake of cholesterol was associated with lower risk of SCC. For BCC, we found that higher intake of polyunsaturated fat, omega-6 fat, and omega-3 fat was each associated with higher risk. On the other hand, higher intake of monounsaturated fat was associated with lower risk of BCC.. Few studies have examined fat intake and risk of melanoma. A case-control study in Australia with 105 melanoma cases showed lower risk of melanoma with high fat intake (OR, 0.61; 95% CI, 0.40-0.92; Ptrend = 0.02; ref. 12). On the other hand, in the Womens Health Initiative randomized controlled dietary modification trial, low-fat diet intervention over 8 years of follow-up did not affect incidence of melanoma (n = 114; HR, 1.04; 95% CI, ...

The wax gourd requires very warm weather to grow but can be stored for many months much like winter squash. Ash gourds of the Indian subcontinent have a white coating with rough texture (hence the name ash gourd, literally, in some vernaculars). South East Asian varieties have a smooth waxy texture. It is one of the few vegetables available during winter in areas of deciduous vegetation, hence its Chinese name literally means 'winter gourd'. The Wax Gourd can typically be stored for 12 months. In India, the wax gourd is recognized for its medicinal properties in the Ayurvedic system of medicine.[8] It is also has significance in spiritual traditions of India and Yoga, where it is identified as a great source of Prana.[10]. In Vietnamese cuisine, it is called bí đao, which is usually used to make soup or stew.[11] When cooked with pork short ribs, the resulting soup is traditionally thought to help produce more milk for breastfeeding mothers.[citation needed]. In Chinese cuisine the gourds are ...

Vadai (Vada) may be made from legumes, sago or potatoes. Commonly used legumes include pigeon pea, chickpea, black gram and green gram. Vegetables and other ingredients are added to improve taste and nutritive value.[6] For legume-based vadas, the legumes (dal) are soaked with water, and then ground to a batter. The batter is then seasoned with other ingredients, such as cumin seeds, onion, curry leaves (sometimes previously sauteed), salt, chillies or black pepper grains. Often ginger and baking soda are added to the seasoning in shops to increase the fluffy texture and improve fermentation for large batches. The mixture is then shaped and deep-fried, resulting in vadas with a crispy skin and fluffy centre. The preparation of kalmi vadas involves cutting the resulting product into pieces and re-frying them.[6] ...

The fruits are eaten raw or cooked as dessert. In rural Panama, the dessert prepared with the addition of sugar and flour, known as pesada de nance, is quite popular. The fruits are also made into dulce de nance, a candy prepared with the fruit cooked in sugar and water. In Nicaragua (where the fruit is called nancite), it is a popular ingredient for several desserts, including raspados (a frozen dessert made from a drink prepared with nancites) and a dessert made by leaving the fruit to ferment with some sugar in a bottle for several months (usually from harvest around August-September until December) -- this is sometimes called "nancite in vinegar". The fruits are also often used to prepare carbonated beverages, ice cream and juice, in Brazil, flavor mezcal-based liqueurs, or make an oily, acidic, fermented beverage known as chicha, the standard term applied to assorted beer-like drinks made of fruits or maize. Nance is used to distill a rum-like liquor called crema de nance in Costa Rica. ...
... grows from generally unbranched taproots and produces one to more than ten stems that are typically 5-40 cm (2.0-15.7 in) tall, but sometimes up to 70 cm (28 in) tall. The stems can be tinted purplish, they are upright or lax, and produce flower heads that are held as tall or taller than the foliage. The foliage may be upright-growing or horizontally spreading; the leaves have petioles that are either unwinged or narrowly winged. The stems can be glabrous or sparsely covered with short hairs. Plants have milky latex and the leaves are all basal; each flowering stem lacks bracts and has one single flower head. The yellow flower heads lack receptacle bracts and all the flowers, which are called florets, are ligulate and bisexual. In many lineages, fruits are mostly produced by apomixis,[10] notwithstanding the flowers are visited by many types of insects.[11] The leaves are 5-45 cm (2.0-17.7 in) long and 1-10 cm (0.39-3.94 in) wide, and are oblanceolate, oblong, or obovate in ...

When the kumquats are divided into multiple species, the name Fortunella japonica (or Citrus japonica) is retained by the group. The round kumquat, also called Marumi kumquat or Morgani kumquat, is an evergreen tree that produces edible golden-yellow fruit. The round Hawaiian varietal, the "Meiwa kumquat", is typically eaten raw. The fruit is small and usually spherical but can be oval shaped. The peel has a sweet flavor, but the fruit has a distinctly sour center. The fruit can be eaten cooked but is mainly used to make marmalades, jellies, and other spreads. It is grown in Luxembourg and can be used in bonsai cultivation. The plant symbolizes good luck in China and other Asian countries, where it is often kept as a houseplant and given as a gift during the Lunar New Year. Round kumquats are more commonly cultivated than other species due to their high cold tolerance. ...
In the journals of Lewis and Clark, on October 12, 1804, Clark recorded that the Arikara tribe raised "great quantities of Corn Beens Simmins, &c."[5] Clark also used the spelling simlin in his journal entries. Simlin, variously spelled simblin, symnel, cymling, cimnel (Thomas Jefferson's spelling) and simnel were words for summer squash, particularly Cucurbita pepo ssp. pepo, common name pattypan squash. The word simnel was used because of the visual similarity between the squash and the simnel cake.[6] ...
