Plasma cholesterol concentrations [mmol/L] at baseline and after 4 wk and 8 wk of intervention with LPI and MPI in subjects with moderate or higher hypercholesterolemia. The study population was differentiated into two subgroups based on the total cholesterol concentration at baseline. Subjects with a cholesterol concentration ≤ 6.6 mmol/L were considered to have moderate hypercholesterolemia (n = 19); subjects with a cholesterol concentration > 6.6 mmol/L were considered to have higher hypercholesterolemia (n = 14). LPI, lupin protein isolate; MPI, milk protein isolate. aP-value is for difference between treatments at wk 8 determined by repeated measures ANOVA. *, *** Significant differences comparing wk 4 and wk 8 with baseline determined by repeated measures ANOVA (*P ≤ 0.050, ***P ≤ 0.001).
