Abstract

The effect of inclusion of microcrystalline cellulose (>300 mesh) in a 2 6 z casein diet on the body composition and cholesterol metabolism of albino rats was studied. Inclusion of cellulose to the extent of 5 to 20% resulted in a gradual decrease of productive energy of the diet. Energy consumption rates progressively declined as dietary energy level was reduced, and were reflected in corresponding changes in the fat content of the carcass. Increased plasma and liver cholesterol induced by cholesterol feeding in the rat could be largely counteracted by the concurrent feeding of cellulose at 2 0 z level in the diet. Sulfaguanidine fed at the 1 z level failed to modify the effect of cellulose administration. The increased excretion of bile acids in the feces of rats on the 20% cellulose diet could be responsible for the cholesterol lowering effect of cellulose.
