This experiment was undertaken to investigate and compare the effect of salt on the lipid composition in serm and liver of rats. The average body weight gains and food efficiency ratio were not affected by supplementation with salt in diet. Total cholesterol and free cholesterol levels in serum of all experimental diet group were slightly increased by supplementation with salt, while triglyceride levels were significantly increased. HDL-cholesterol levels of all salt supplementation groups were slightly lower than that of the control group, while LDL, VLDL-cholesterol levels of these groups were higher than that of the control group. The ratio of LDL, VLDL-cholesterol to HDL-cholesterol; so called, atheorgenic index, in serum of salt diet groups was slightly higher than that of the control groups. The ratio of LDL, VLDL-lipoprotein to HDL-lipoprotein in salt diet group were significantly higher than that of the control group. The weight of the liver was not affected by diet, but total cholesterol and triglyceride levels of the liver in salt diet groups were higher than that of the control group.
