Abstract

© 2016, Agricultural Institute of Canada. All rights reserved. A total of sixteen barrows were randomly assigned to diets containing 5% biohydrogenation product (BHP)-enriched or control beef fat for 7 weeks. On completion of 7 weeks, we found that feeding enriched fat led to deposition of BHP and isomer-specific metabolism of trans-18:1 in adipose tissue. It was also noticed that total and HDL-cholesterol were decreased; however, LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides were not affected.
