Comparison Between the Effects of Saturated and Unsaturated Oils on Serum Cholesterol of Jordanian Volunteers

Abdullah Y. A. Rawashdeh

Abstract:
The effect of palm oil (PO), olive oil (OO), corn oil (CO) and soybean oil (SO) on the serum lipid profile was studied in 24 healthy persons (12 males, aged 35-43 y; 12 females, aged 26-34 y). The subjects ate their habitual diet using one type of oil in food preparation for 4 weeks with 4 weeks interval between the four oil periods. The SO, CO and OO-diets were significantly (P<0.05) reduced levels of serum total cholesterol, low and high density lipoprotein cholesterol, whereas PO diet caused slight increase in this levels. However, SO-diet caused comparatively higher reduction in these levels (-11, -9.5, -2 mg dl-1, respectively). Triglycerides level was increased after SO, CO and OO periods, while PO diet reduced this level.
