ABSTRACT
The present research was postulated to study the possibility of producing bread containing either the whole flaxseed or the defatted flaxseed and to determine to what extent it may modify lipid profile in hyperlipidemic rats. The results showed the reduction in plasma total lipids, total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides when rats were fed different flaxseed-containing bread. Concomitantly, bread containing the whole flaxseed produced a significant increase in high density lipoprotein cholesterol. These results reflect the possible beneficial use of such bread towards cardiovascular diseases.
