  1. Results are expressed as mean ± SD. 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 Duncan test was used. For each evaluated characteristic means followed by the same letter in the lines are not significantly different at 5% probability.
  2. *TBARS, test thiobarbituric acid reactive substances.
