  1. §Data are (expressed as) mean percentage ± SE. Values in the same row that do not share the same superscript letter are significantly different according to analysis of variance and Duncan’s post hoc procedures (P < .05); nd = not detected.
  2. Control = AIN-76 A control diet; 4% CG = AIN-76A diet + 4% collard green powder; 4% purslane = AIN-76A diet + 4% purslane powder; 4% SPG = AIN-76A diet + 4% sweet potato green powder.
  3. Values in rows with multiple superscript letters (e.g. ab) are not significantly different from other values containing the shared superscript letter (e.g. a or b).
