Abstract

Physiological effect of L-arabitol was investigated by feeding Sprague-Dawley male rats for four weeks with a diet containing 2.5% L-arabitol in comparison with the control diet, containing cellulose. The weights of kidney and cecum increased, while adipose tissue decreased significantly in spite of no difference in their body weights.
