- Extract: The hypothesis that dietary fiber lowers serum cholesterol was tested in 10 healthy men, 19 to 54 years old, who ate a mixed diet similar to the diets of many American adult males. After 30 days of equilibration on the basal diet, they ate 26 g of either soft white wheat bran, corn bran (CB), soybean hulls (SH), textured vegetable protein, or hard red spring wheat bran (HRS) for periods of 28 to 30 days each in no particular sequence. Mean daily fecal weight increased when CB, SH, and HRS were fed. Total plasma cholesterol decreased 12 percent with HRS. Some triglyceride lowering effect was seen with all sources of dietary fiber. Other results are reported.
