  1. Shown are weight% or energy% macronutrients and other ingredients in different diets and the fat content is further characterised. Nutrient composition was kept constant across different diets, except for corn starch and fat components. Metabolizable energy was calculated according to Atwater in MJ/kg (provided by Ssniff Spezialdiäten) C control diet (Cat. no.: S5745-E720), DHA docosahexaenoic acid, EPA eicosapentaenoic acid, HF high-fat diet (Cat. no.: S5745-E722), HF/n-3 n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid-enriched high-fat diet (Cat. no.: S5745-E725), MUFA monounsaturated fatty acids, PUFA polyunsaturated fatty acids, SFA saturated fatty acids
