We study the dynamics of indicators of biological value and protein and lipid digestibility content of total Cholesterol and Triglycerides in the blood serum of rats treated for 4 weeks semisynthetic diet with elevated the levels of Microcrystalline cellulose and wheat bran. The content of microcrystalline cellulose in the diet of animals in the 0.2 and 2.0 grams per 100 grams of dry food, and wheat bran in the amount of 0.2 grams per 100 grams of dry food leads to a significant decrease in the true biological value protein. The introduction of the diet 0.2 and 2.0 grams of microcrystalline Cellulose observed a significant increase in the level of Cholesterol in the blood serum. And with the introduction of the diet 0.2 and 2.0 grams of wheat bran, a significant increase in the content of triglycerides in serum.
