Addition Ratio of Palatinose and Body Fat Accumulation in Mice
In the present study, the relationship between the addition ratio of palatinose in feed and body fat accumulation was investigated in mice. Thirty eight-week-old male mice (C57BL/6CrSlc) were divided into three groups : a 0% palatinose group (control group), a 18% palatinose group, and an 40% palatinose group. The 3 groups were then fed their respective diets for 8 weeks. Following the conclusion of the feeding period, fat tissues in the perirenal, periepididymal, and perimesenteric regions were removed to determine their wet weight. The weight of the visceral fat was clearly lower in mice of groups fed with feed containing palatinose than in the mice of the control group. In particular, the weight of perirenal fat was significantly lower in the 40% palatinose group than in the control group (<I>p</I><0.05).
