Influence of dietary beetpulp on the plasma level of triacylglycerols in horses.
In a cross-over study with six adult horses, the effect of isoenergetic replacement of dietary glucose by beetpulp on the concentration of plasma triacylglycerols was studied. The test ration contained 25% beetpulp in the dietary dry matter. Effects on heparin-released lipoprotein lipase (LPL), the concentration of HDL cholesterol, plasma concentrations of free fatty acids and those of beta-hydroxybutyrate are reported.
