Abstract


In this paper the effect of the 3 most important variables (quantity, quality and composition) of dietary fat on the distribution and composition of fatty acids in rat adipose tissue, is studied. From the results obtained after feeding 11 groups of rats, the following conclusions stand out: 1 . - Fatty acid composition of rat adipose tissue is very variable. Nevertheless, when the percentage of fat in the diet is higher than 12%, the fatty acid composition of the adipose tissue is similar to that of the ingested fat. 2.- The level of alteration of the fat in the diet clearly modifies the fat composition In adipose tissue. This fact might be due to the lower digestibility. 3.- Fatty acid distribution in adipose tissue is independent of the distribution in the ingested fat.
