Effect of dietary fibre from cereal brans and legume seedcoats on serum lipids in rats

The present investigation was carried out to study the hypolipidemic effect of dietary fibre from cornbran and blackgram seedcoat in rats. Isoproteinous diet having one percent cholesterol and ten percent dietary fibre from cornbran and blackgram seedcoat was fed to four groups of albino rats for six weeks. With consumption of both the grain husks, total lipids, cholesterol and tryglycerides were lowered while HDL-cholesterol was found to be significantly increased. However, serum phospholipids were not affected significantly by grain husks. Cornbran was observed to be more hypolipidemic than blackgram seedcoat.
