• Rapeseed Lecithin Increases Lymphatic Lipid Output and α-Linolenic Acid Bioavailability in Rats

    2 days ago - By Nutrition

    ABSTRACTBackgroundSoybean lecithin, a plant-based emulsifier widely used in food, is capable of modulating postprandial lipid metabolism. With arising concerns of sustainability, alternative sources of vegetal lecithin are urgently needed, and their metabolic effects must be characterized.ObjectivesWe evaluated the impact of increasing doses of rapeseed lecithin , rich in essential α-linolenic acid , on postprandial lipid metabolism and ALA bioavailability in lymph-cannulated rats.MethodsMale Wistar rats undergoing a mesenteric lymph duct cannulation were intragastrically administered 1 g...
