Indirect measurement of the production of plasma triacylglycerols by horses given a high fat diet

Published: 2002-12-31

Brief content of the article
The authors tested the hypothesis that the feeding of extra fat would raise the production of plasma triacylglycerols (TAG) by using the indirect Triton method. Six adult horses were given a low fat control or a high fat diet. The rate of increase in plasma plasma TAG concentration after Triton administration appeared lower than the control diets.
Keywords: Fat; TAG; triacylglycerol production.
