It has been well established that the deposition of fat in the liver is greatly influenced by a number of dietary factors. Excessive amounts of fat (1) or carbohydrate (2) or relative deficiency of lipotropic agents like choline (3)4), methionine (5) or protein (6-rr) are the chief dietary factors which result in the production of fatty livers. These studies on the fatty infiltration into the liver have been carried out using synthetic diets. Similar work with reference to the rice diet, however,' is scanty. Formation of fatty livers in rats maintained on a low-protein diet approximating in composition to a poor rice diet supplemented with different fats (IS to 25%) ha.s been reported by Damodaran and Sivaraman (12, 13). The influence of various dietary fats at different levels of intake on the liver composition of rats with special reference t6 lipids has been studied by Sahasrabudhe and Lakshminarayan Rao (14) using the poor South Indian rice diet as well as the similar low protein synthetic diet. No detailed study, however, has yet been carried out on the effect of dietary fats on the fatty acids composition of liver-fat of rats. Channon et al (IS) determined the aproximate composition of liver-fat of rats fed on synthetic diet containing 40% coconut oil. They, however, mentioned that owing to the very much smaller amount of the liver fatty acids (28.96 g.) available for the analysis, it was very difficult to deduce the exact composition of the liver-fat. In view of the above, it was considered of great interest to study the effect of a high rice diet on the deposition and the fatty acids composition of the liver-fat of rats.
