The table shows the food composition of the normal pellet, and High Fat and High Cholesterol (HFHC) Diets. The rats were allowed to adapt to their environment for at least 10 days on normal pellet diet prior to commencement of interventions. The rats were then randomly divided into nine groups of seven rats each; the normal control (NC) received normal pellet, while the other groups received HFHC to induce hypercholesterolemia in addition to the respective treatments. Every kg of the HFHC formulation contained higher cholesterol, fats and protein compared to the normal pellet.
