  • Salmon fillet intake led to higher serum triacylglycerol in obese zucker Fa/Fa rats but not in normolipidemic Long-Evans rats 

    Vikøren, Linn Anja Slåke; Drotningsvik, Aslaug; Mjøs, Svein Are; Mellgren, Gunnar; Gudbrandsen, Oddrun Anita (MDPI, 2018-10-08)
    The triacylglycerol lowering effect of fatty fish and fish oils is well recognized, however we recently showed that salmon intake resulted in higher serum triacylglycerol concentration in obese Zucker fa/fa rats. Since ...
