Interesterified fat has been used as an alternative to substitute trans fatty acids in the food industry, the role of this fat in metabolism remains an uncertain controversy. Therefore the purpose of this work was to evaluate the role of this kind of lipids in rat metabolism. Our findings showed that substitution of soybean oil for interesterified fat may worsen some metabolic parameters, additionally changing saturated fat for interesterified fat can slightly improve some parameters observed.
