  1. Values are presented as mean relative percentages ± SEM or as change (Δ) compared to fasted state (i.e.% at postprandial value –% at fasting value). P values were obtained using a Factorial Repeated Measures (Split-Plot) ANOVA in SPSS version 22.0 (IBM Corp., Armonk, NY). Bold characters are used to indicate significant effects (P < 0.05). Trend effect was set at P < 0.09.
