  1. Results are expressed as mean ± SD for all parameters with exception of liver fat witch is represented by median (maximum and minimum). AIN-93 M diet: negative control group (n = 10/group); cafeteria diet (CAF): positive control group (n = 10/group); and caferia diet with whole soybean flour (CAFS) (n = 10/group). To compare the experimental groups with exception of LH Duncan test was used. To compare LF parameter between experimental groups Kruskall-Wallis test was used. For each evaluated characteristic means followed by the same letter in the lines are not significantly different at 5% probability.
  2. *ALT, enzyme alanine aminotransferase; AST, enzyme aspartate aminotransferase; DI, dietary intake; FER, feed efficiency ratio; HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin; HDL, high density lipoprotein; HIS, hepatosomatic index.
