Levels of metabolic markers in rats.

Data represent mean ± standard deviation of (a) relative body weight gain (g/g feed); (b) relative liver weight (g/g body weight); (c) liver triglycerides (mg/g liver); (d) plasma triglycerides (mg/ml); (e) liver cholesterol (mg/g liver); and (f) plasma cholesterol (mg/ml). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 between low- and high-fat groups of rats fed the same fiber (one-way ANOVA with Tukey’s test for multiple comparisons).
