OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of tocopherols present in Rosa mosqueta oil (RM) in the prevention of high-fat diet (HFD)-induced alterations.

METHODS: Male C57 BL/6 J mice (n = 9/group) were fed for 12 wk and divided into four groups: control (CD; 10% kcal fat, 20% kcal protein, 70% kcal carbohydrates); HFD (60% as fat, 20% kcal protein, 20% kcal carbohydrates); HFD + RM (0.01 mL/g body weight/d); and HFD + RMwithout tocopherols (0.01 mL/g body weight/d). Parameters of obesity, liver steatosis (histology, triacylglycerols content), inflammation (adipose NLRP3 inflammasome, tumor necrosis factor-α and interleukin-1 β expression, hepatic nuclear factor-κB) and oxidative stress (hepatic Nrf2 activation, carbonylated proteins)were evaluated.

RESULTS: Liver steatosis, inflammatory, and oxidative stress parameters were significantly (P < 0.05) increased in the HFD + RMcompared with the HFD + RM, with no differences between HFD and HFD + RM.

CONCLUSION: The present study suggests thatα- and γ-tocopherols from RM may have an important role in the prevention of alterations induced by HFD.
