A study was carried out to evaluate the effect of resistant starch from hypocotyl axes on the prevention of obesity in adult males rat fed with high fructosis and pig fat. Six groups of six rats each were subjected to this study, in particular a positive control group, a control group and four groups each having in their diet an incorporation of flour from hypocotyl axes in different proportions, especially 5, 10, 15 and 20 %. The results of the analyzes show an increase of 12.34% and 28.51% of the body mass of the control group and the positive control group. A decrease of the body mass in the rats subjected to supplemented diets were observed. The total cholesterol contents were 201.49 ± 4.67 and 242.04 ± 4.53 mg respectively for the control group and the positive control group. From the 5 to 20% concentration of hypocotyls axes flour, a lowering of 14.02% body mass was observed. The values obtained for HDL cholesterol ranged from 43.93 ± 1.07, 70.45 ± 2.14 to 76.01 ± 4.43 mg / dl respectively for the control group, the control group and the group feed at 15 % of hypocotyl axes and those of LDL cholesterol were 157.85 ± 9.16, 176.12 ± 15.10 and 141.68 ± 9.85mg / dl respectively for the control group and the feed group 20% hypocotyl axis. The blood glucose level was 94.17 ± 3.08, 127.50 ± 12.83 and 103.33 ± 8.08 g / dl respectively for the control group, the control group and the group feed 20% hypocotyl axes. The hypocotyl axis can be used for the prevention and management of obesity.
