Objective: To envestigate the effect of consumption of phytic acid extract from sweet potato on carbohydrate and lipid metabolizing ezzymes in the liver of rats. Design and Method: Phytic acid was extracte dfrom sweet potato (Ipomea batatas) and fed to Wistar rats for three weeks. Animals were then sacrificed and the activities of key enzymes of carbohydrates and lipid metabolism and transaminases in the liver were determined. Blood glucose level was also assessed.....
