  1. Values are given as mean ± SEM.
  2. 1Body weight (bwt) and length measured at the end of the experiment (9 months of age).
  3. 2Mean food intake per rat over the whole experimental period was calculated from the measured food intake per cage (2 rats/cage).
  4. 3Data were statistically analysed by unpaired student’s t-test.
