Changes in human serum lipid profile with regular consumption of omega-3 fatty acid enriched eggs vs. consumption of regular standard hen eggs.

In this double-blind crossover study, fourteen adults aged 19-22 years (6 male, 8 female) were asked to consume two standard or two omega-3 fatty acid enriched eggs a day for three weeks.  A one week washout period followed, and then three weeks of the opposite egg. Participants were asked to keep two 3-day diet records during egg consumption and on 1-day diet record during the wash-out period to analyze average fatty acid composition of the diet.  Cholesterol and blood pressure were measured four times in this study using a Cholestech LDX System and an automatic blood pressure cuff. Lipid profile differences between groups were not significant, although subjects consuming omega-3 enriched eggs has lower risk in triglycerides.
