Rodent Diet with 60% Calories from Fat is purified diet with refined ingredients, designed with similarities to Research Diets, Inc. formula D12492. While considered extreme compared to typical human fat consumption, these diets are effective for rapid weight gain in most rodents. With higher fat content there is less space for carbohydrate, thus the carbohydrate(particularly sucrose)amount is relatively low.
In order to induce type 2 diabetes, pre-feeding a high-fat diet to induce a certain level of obesity and insulin resistance, followed by low-dose streptozotocin (STZ) may be an effective approach.
Please contact with our nutritionist before choosing a high-fat diet for your specific research.
