Abstract: A total of 25. one month old Long Evan male rats were studied to observe the effects of different edible oils on hemato-biochemical profiles. They were randomly assigned to one of five equal groups (n= 5) as A, B, C, D and E. Group. A was considered as control fed with rat feed (ICDDR`B) and others were supplemented with soybean oil (Group B), palm oil (Group C), coconut oil (Group D) and mustard oil (Group E) at a concentration of 7.5% with rat feed for 8 weeks. TEC was increased significantly (P<0.05) in group D as compared to control. The Hb concentration increased significantly (P<0.05) in group B and highly significantly (P<0.01) in group C and E. The PCV increased significantly (P<0.05) in group C as compared to control. ESR differed insignificantly (P>0.05) among treatment groups compared to control. TLC differed insignificantly (P>0.05) in group B,C,D but varied significantly (P<0.05) in group E to that of control. The total serum cholesterol differed insignificantly (P>0.05) in the treatment groups. Triglycerides concentration of group E differed significantly (P<0.05) but insignificantly in group B,C and D to that of control. There was no significant (P>0.05) difference of HDL-cholesterol in treatment groups with the control. The LDL- cholesterol values were below detection level in all rats. The results suggest that edible oils have little effect in rat haematobiochemical parameters. Further research should be carried with long duration before making any comments.
