  1. Incremental area under the postprandial serum concentration curve (iAUC) of glucose, insulin, NEFA, TG and HDLc after the acute intake of both types of olive oil. OO, olive oil; p values correspond to Wilcoxon-paired test (n = 20); iAUC, incremental area under the concentration curve; NEFA, non-sterified fatty acids; TG, serum triglycerides; HDLc, high density lipoprotein cholesterol. All values are expressed as mean ± SD.
