Abstract

The food intake of weanling rats is marke~ly influenced by the available energy content of the diet. It has been suggested! that, within physiological limits, animals eat to satisfy their energy requirements. Hill and Danskl observed that food intake was chiefly influenced by the energy content of the ration, while the protein level has little or no effect. The ratio of protein to available energy exerts a considerable influence on fat deposition in anima1s3 • Dietary fat has a protein sparing action4 which may be influenced by the calories: protein ratio. It has been observed5 that optimum growth and optimum feed efficiency are closely related to a rather sensitive balance between the amount of protein and the caloric content of the diet. Thus, the growth promoting potential of an adequate diet cannot be based on the percentage of protein alone, but the calories: protein ratio has also to be considered. In recent years, a great deal of evidence has accumulated6 implicating dietary fat in the causation of cardiovascular disease. Interest has chiefly centred round the relationship of dietary fatty acid components to the metabolism of cholesterol. More recent work implicates dietary proteins7 , 8 and vitamins6 , 9 as well. In view of the above, it was thought to be of interest to study the effects of variations in calories: protein ratio on lipid composition and distribution in blood and liver under conditions varied with respect to B vitamins intake.
