Figure 3

Fecal caloric content in age-matched animals exposed to the diet for 72 hours (acute - closed bars) or 17 weeks (chronic - open bars). A significant decline in caloric content of the feces was observed in animals chronically exposed to the diet in the HF, AA and PS groups when compared to an acute 72-hour exposure in age-matched individuals (n = 7; t-test within each dietary group). Asterisks indicate a significant decline in fecal caloric content is observed in animals exposed to a diet for 17 weeks when compared to acute dietary exposure. After caloric content was corrected for estimated phytosterol content, no significant difference was observed between the diets within each exposure.
