(c) cereal with semi-skimmed milk (2·7 g fat)
(d) water (0 g fat).
The results were:
(1) Vitamin E absorption was significantly greater with the higher-fat toast and butter meal compared with the low-fat cereal meal or water.
(2) There was a trend towards greater absorption of vitamin E in the higher-fat toast and butter meal compared with the high-fat cereal meal.
(3) There was significantly greater vitamin E absorption with the high-fat cereal meal compared with the low-fat cereal meal.
(4) Vitamin E absorption following either the low-fat cereal meal or water was low.
The study revealed that higher fat meals promote better vitamin E absorption.
