Dairy fat intake is associated with glucose tolerance, hepatic and systemic insulin sensitivity, and liver fat but not β-cell function in humans1,2,3

Am J Clin Nutr: June 2014

Background: Plasma phospholipid concentrations of trans-palmitoleic acid (trans-16:1n−7), a biomarker of dairy fat intake, are inversely associated with incident type 2 diabetes in 2 US cohorts.

Objective: The objective was to investigate whether the intake of trans-16:1n−7 in particular, or dairy fat in general, is associated with glucose tolerance and key factors determining glucose tolerance. Read More
