Comparison of weight gaining properties between TWC and AMW groups. (a) Average weight of each experimental group from weeks 0 to 24. The blue line represents TWC and the orange line represents AMW. Values were calculated from individual measurements of body weight. (b) The average body weights of both experimental groups at week 0 were defined as 100%, and the relative ratios from weeks 1 to 24. (c) The fluctuation of body weight ratios between TWC control and AMW test groups. The values of the control groups = 100% (blue line) throughout the experiments and the relative values of AMW (orange line) are shown. The statistical significance of each criterion was evaluated by Student’s t-test and indicated as values.
