For researchers, researchers divided the 119 male and female men into metabolic syndrome into 2 groups. In this, a group was asked to take 45 grams of nut per day for 16 weeks. Whereas, the second group consumed white bread.

During the trial, lipid profile, HB1 AC level, leptin, apolipoprotein B along with the level of adiponectin were measured four times with anthropometric and bioipidence data.
