Effect of dietary corn oil, butter and beef tallow on the cecal microflora and short-chain fatty acids in rats






Bioscience and Microflora 15(1): 27-30

Effect of dietary corn oil, butter and beef tallow on the cecal microflora and short-chain fatty acids in rats

Female Wistar rats fed a diet containing 5% maize oil, butter, or beef tallow for 4 weeks were examined for caecal microflora and caecal short-chain fatty acids. Bifidobacteria and proteus viable numbers decreased in the caecum of rats fed a butter-containing diet compared with rats fed maize oil- or beef tallow-containing diets. Clostridia numbers were significantly decreased in the beef tallow and butter groups compared with the maize oil group.
