ABSTRACT
Effects of enriching a non-modified diet of dyslipidaemic men and women with hull-less oats (Akt variety), contributing 10-15% to the diet’s calorific content, on the levels of glucose, triacylglycerols, total cholesterol, HDL- and LDL-cholesterols, and fibrinogen were tested experimentally. The women eating the oat-enriched diet for 6 weeks were found to have reduced their triacylglycerol, total cholesterol, and LDL-cholesterol from 215 to 188, from 256.9 to 244.5, and from 162.2 to 150.6 mg/dL, respectively. Their HDL- cholesterol, glucose, and fibrinogen contents were observed to increase from 56.8 to 60.2, from 100.3 to 104.0, and from 345.8 to 349.2 mg/dL, respectively. None of those changes, however, was statistically significant. On the other hand, the men showed a statistically significant (p
