Plasma total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TGs), and non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs) were measured at the end of the feeding regimen in mice fed saturated fats (SFA 5 m) and SFA-fed mice switched to an LF (+LF 2 m) and DHA diet (+DHA 2 m). Final body weight and weight gain were also calculated. Data represented as mean ± standard error of mean. Means were compared with one-way ANOVA, where considered statistically significant (*).
