Dietary methods to induce NAFLD/NASH in rodents can be split into two common categories:

  • diets fed for longer periods of time to induce obesity, metabolic syndrome, and mild NASH or
  • diets fed for short periods of time to induce hepatic features of severe NASH without inducing obesity or insulin resistance

This page provides further information on dietary methods to induce NAFLD/NASH. We’ve also prepared a downloadable NASH/NAFLD mini paper.

The tables below highlight diet options from both of the above categories. For more complete descriptions of NAFLD/NASH models see the drop down menus that follow the tables.

Diets inducing obesity, metabolic syndrome and mild NAFLD/NASH

Western or fast food style diets fed to induce NASH with metabolic syndrome contain 40 – 45% kcal from milkfat (a fat source high in palmitate) with added cholesterol (0.15 – 2%) and are high in sucrose (>30%). Dietary palmitate and cholesterol have both previously been associated with the progression from simple steatosis to NASH.

Research use:

These diets can induce obesity, metabolic syndrome, and simple steatosis within nine weeks of feeding. Increased hepatic inflammation has been observed after 12 weeks of feeding. NASH typically requires longer feeding with fibrosis developing within nine months and late stage fibrosis including hepatic ballooning occurring after 14 – 20 months of feeding. Increasing dietary sucrose (~41%) and cholesterol (~1.25%) accelerates the NASH phenotype with steatosis, inflammation and hepatocyte ballooning observed within 12 weeks. In addition to feeding a high fat diet, providing a glucose/fructose mixture in the drinking water may further promote NASH development.

The American Lifestyle-Induced Obesity Syndrome (ALIOS) model involves feeding the “American fast food” diet high in trans-fats and sugar. Dietary trans-fats from hydrogenated vegetable shortening (HVO) are associated with increased insulin resistance and hepatic inflammation in rodent NASH models. In addition to diet, a glucose/fructose solution is added to the drinking water and sedentary behavior promoted by removing the overhead cage feeders in this model.

  • TD.120330     22% HVO + 0.2% Cholesterol Diet
  • TD.130885     ALIOS with Added Sugar

Research use:

The ALIOS model develops obesity with insulin resistance, elevated ALT levels, and steatosis within 16 weeks. Increased inflammation and early development of fibrosis have been observed at 6 months. Severe steatosis with fibrosis and inflammation develops within 12 months of feeding with 50% of the mice reportedly developing hepatic neoplasms. Adding cholesterol (0.2%) to the American Fast Food diet may accelerate NASH phenotype development.

The Fructose, Palmitate, Cholesterol and Trans-Fat (FPC) diet is a recent NASH diet that includes Western and ALIOS model diets to achieve both metabolic and hepatic NASH features within an accelerated time frame. Key features of the FPC diet include 1) a lower Met content than typical rodent diets by decreasing total protein without supplementing sulfur amino acids; 2) choline supplementation is lower than typical but is not considered deficient; 3) high in sucrose (~34% by weight); 4) 1.25% cholesterol; 5) 52% kcal from fat with fat sources including milkfat fat, palmitic acid and hydrogenated vegetable shortening to provide trans-fats. Like the ALIOS model, the FPC model also provides a glucose/fructose solution to the drinking water.

Common diets to induce obesity (DIO) can be fed to induce uncomplicated NAFLD. These high fat diets typically contain 40–60% kcal from fat without supplemented cholesterol or cholate. Simple sugars such as sucrose or fructose can also be supplemented via diet or water to progress the fatty liver phenotype. Diets can be in pellet or powder/dough form depending on the formula. Some models require limited physical activity and in those cases diets can be fed inside the cage. For more information see our Diet Induced Obesity page.


  • TD.08811       45%kcal Fat Diet (21% MF, 2% SBO)
  • TD.06414       Adjusted Calories Diet (60/Fat)

Research use:

In susceptible rodent models, high fat diets are commonly used to induce NAFLD with obesity and insulin resistance common metabolic features associated with NASH in humans. However, the degree of NASH pathology (steatosis, inflammation, and fibrosis) is limited or mild and varies depending on the animal model, length of feeding, and dietary components.

Diets to induce severe hepatic NAFLD/NASH without obesity or metabolic


Originally formulated to induce mild atherosclerosis in wild-type rodents, high fat diets containing added cholesterol (1 – 1.25%) and cholate (0.5% as sodium cholate or cholic acid) have also been useful in inducing NASH. This diet option includes purified “Western” style diets with increased cholesterol and cholate and also hybrid diets. Hybrid diets were originally developed by Beverly Paigen and colleagues by mixing a natural ingredient mouse diet in a 3:1 ratio with a concentrated purified diet (containing 5% cholesterol and 2% sodium cholate) resulting in a diet containing ~15.8% fat, 1.25% cholesterol, and 0.5% sodium cholate. Although a less refined approach, the hybrid diet is associated with increased gallstone formation and liver damage as compared to similar purified diets.

  • TD.88051       Cocoa Butter Diet and Purina Mouse Chow
  • TD.09237       15% AMF Diet (1% Chol, 0.5% NaChol)

Research use:

Atherogenic diets are able to induce varied degrees of NASH with increased hepatic inflammation with early fibrosis observed after ten weeks of feeding. However, the metabolic profile typical in human NASH (obesity with insulin resistance) is not recapitulated in this model with animals typically maintaining similar body weights as control fed groups without the development of metabolic syndrome.

Methionine and choline deficient (MCD) diets are amino acid defined rodent diets deficient in methionine and choline, high in sucrose (>40% by weight) with ~10% corn oil by weight. Methionine and choline deficiency decreases fat oxidation and export of fat from the liver. Dietary sucrose is necessary for hepatic lipid accumulation and oxidation. The polyunsaturated fat in corn oil promotes hepatic lipid oxidation.


  • TD.90262       Methionine/Choline Deficient Diet


  • TD.94149       Amino Acid Control Diet

Research use:

Steatosis, increased serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), inflammation, and hepatic fat oxidation has been observed within three weeks of feeding the MCD diet with fibrosis development after six weeks. This dietary model does not produce metabolic syndrome (an aspect of NASH in human models) and progressive weight loss (up to 40%) is associated with the MCD diet feeding.

Dietary models of NAFLD/NASH continue to evolve with the goal of more accurately recapitulating both the metabolic and hepatic symptoms of human disease. Commonly researchers are studying the synergistic effects of various NASH dietary features to accelerate progression of the model and severity of liver disease.

A Teklad nutritionist can work with you to formulate new diets in order to investigate novel dietary models of NAFLD/NASH.

The choice of control diet is dependent on the specific research goal. Many researchers choose to compare their NAFLD/NASH diet-fed animals to animals fed a natural ingredient, grain-based diet (also referred to as standard diet or chow). These diets differ in the source and level of nutrients as well as in the presence of non-nutritive factors (such as phytates or phytoestrogens).

Depending on what your main comparisons are, it may be suitable to have a grain-based diet as your control/reference group. However, making such comparisons limits inferences to dietary patterns versus a specific dietary component. In some cases, such as those studies feeding amino acid defined diets like the MCD model, a matched control diet is recommended given the very different formulations and protein sources of grain-based diets.

When making inferences about specific nutrients within the diet an ingredient matched, low fat control diet may be necessary. There are many options with different levels and types of fat in addition to different types of carbohydrate ranging from sucrose (highly refined and digestible) to corn starch (refined, but more complex) to resistant starch (refined, but not fully digestible).

A very basic purified control diet would be AIN-93M TD.94048 or AIN-93G TD.94045. AIN-93 diets have a moderate amount of sucrose at ~10% with fat from soybean oil providing a healthy fatty acid profile.

Harlan teklad饲料常见问题以及使用方法









  • 凉爽和干燥;在华氏70度或以下,湿度低于50%的理想值,但高达65%是可以接受的。
  • 清洁无害虫
  • 在原始包装中或容器中,防止连续暴露于光线下,并将空气暴露在最小范围内。

Envigo提供辐照饮食,床上用品和浓缩物品。辐照通过使产品暴露于钴-60的伽马电离辐射,减少产品所含生物的数量。受伽马射线照射的生物体在分子水平上受到破坏,往往具有致命的影响。最终的结果是产品中可存活微生物数量的减少。Envigo以最低剂量2.0 mrad(20 KGy)和最大5.0mrad(50 KGy)照射所有Teclad产品。



“自由”一词意味着完全和完全不存在植物雌激素。这将排除任何由天然成分组成的饮食。唯一一种完全不含植物雌激素的饮食是不含大豆蛋白的纯化饮食。然而,Envigo提供了四种Teclad全球啮齿动物饮食,不包括已知含有大量植物雌激素的紫花苜蓿粉和豆粕等成分。2014、2016、2019和2020倍的饮食虽然不是完全“免费”,但最好用最小的植物雌激素饮食来形容。每季度对大豆异黄酮(大豆植物雌激素)的饮食进行测试时,通常会发现含量从不到可检测到的到百万分之20不等。从某种角度来看,大多数传统的啮齿动物饮食中含有200到500 ppm的异黄酮。植物雌激素最低限度饮食,如2014、2016、2019和2020 X,在植物雌激素引起关注的研究中通常是可以接受的。
















屏障设施或某些动物模型需要无菌饮食。大多数自定义的研究饮食是经不起高压灭菌的,然而,我们可以安排合格的饮食被辐照。照射剂量范围为2~5次MRAD,即20~50 kGy.涉及象征性费用和额外时间。





“无维生素”试验酪蛋白是从普通酪蛋白中提取的一种醇提酪蛋白,通常含有90%-91%的蛋白质(%Nx 6.38)、0.1%的脂肪和4-6%的水分。醇提物减少脂肪、脂溶性维生素和一些B族维生素。这种蛋白质来源最适合用于维生素缺乏饮食,当研究人员想最小化“背景脂肪”在节食中。我们已经准备了多年的这种特殊原料,并继续提供给许多实验室。我们将根据大量需求制定特殊价格。对于1,000公斤或以上的订单,建议提前通知。如果您需要这种成分,请考虑Envigo作为您的首选来源。







没有。根据NIH OACU关于在实验动物中使用非药物级化学品/化合物的指南(2008年),用于便利使用一种化合物的车辆与制剂中的活性化合物一样重要。饮食作为一种交通工具,无论是作为整体还是作为其部件的总和,都不符合本文件所定义的药品等级标准。

No. According to the NIH OACU Guidelines for Use of Non-Pharmaceutical-Grade Chemicals/Compounds in Laboratory Animals (2008), the vehicle used to facilitate administration of a compound is as important of a consideration as the active compound in the preparation. Diet as a vehicle, either whole or as the sum of its parts, would not meet the standard for pharmaceutical grade as defined by this document.

You may have been asked this question by your IACUC due to a passage in the 8thedition of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (2011) stating that pharmaceutical-grade chemicals and other substances should be used, when available, for all animal-related procedures (page 31). In general, deviations from “Must” or “Should” statements within the Guide require justification and approval by your institutional IACUC.

Alternative dosing techniques (gavage, injection) can introduce stress from handling and increase the risk for potential injury. Stress can affect animal well-being as well as scientific parameters through modifications in behavior and physiology. Dosing via diet is an established method for delivering test compounds to animals that is non-invasive, reducing stress and potential injury from handling. Therefore, use of non-pharmaceutical grade compounds as a delivery method is justified, as it is advantageous for both animal welfare and experimental design.

Harlan 啮齿类饲料 Rodent diets

As a researcher, you want to have as much control as possible over what goes into your study animals. At Envigo, we understand that. That is why we developed Teklad Global Rodent Diets®.

Teklad Global Rodent Diets® are a special integrated range of vegetarian laboratory rodent diets developed to be nutritionally complete for various life stages from breeding through long-term maintenance. Global rodent laboratory diets contain levels of protein, energy, vitamins and minerals that are more appropriate to the needs of modern biomedical research studies.

Furthermore, in global rodent diets particular attention has been placed on avoiding, as far as practical, ingredients that are reported to have adverse confounding effects on experimental results. This has resulted in a range of Teklad rodent laboratory diets that contain:

No fish meal

No meat meals or meat by-products

No alfalfa meal

No soybean meal or reduced levels

No animal fat

By excluding animal by-products, the presence of nitrosamines (a potential carcinogen) is avoided. Exclusion of alfalfa meal reduces chlorophyll, improving optical imaging clarity. Reduction or removal of soybean meal, together with elimination of alfalfa meal, minimizes levels of naturally-occurring phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens interact with endogenous estrogens and potentially can affect studies in many research areas. Read more about this in these pieces:

Traditional rodent diets were formulated decades ago based on understanding of rodent nutrition, ingredients, and diet manufacturing at the time. While traditional diets will supply the known nutrient needs of your laboratory animals, we recommend you consider the use of a diet from our newer global diet line for your modern research needs.

Teklad Global Rodent Diets® are modern formulas designed to reduce research variables. Specifically, these diets contain more appropriate nutrient levels, and limit or exclude ingredients that are reported to have effects on a wide variety of research endpoints.

  • Lower, more appropriate protein levels can improve survival and reduce morbidity
  • Vegetarian with no nitrosamines (a potential carcinogen)
  • Formulated to exclude alfalfa meal, greatly improving fluorescent imaging clarity
  • Formulated to exclude or lower soybean meal, thus minimizing the presence of isoflavones, the primary type of phytoestrogen found in lab animal diets
  • Extruded rodent diets dramatically reduce clumping and hardness after autoclaving (2018SX, 2019S, 2020SX), and in general result in less diet waste and cleaner cages

Teklad rodent diets are natural-ingredient diets specifically formulated to provide the proper balance of all known nutrients considered essential for the growth, maintenance, and reproduction of rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters. These diets conform to the nutrient requirements for rodents established by the National Research Council (1995).

Teklad rodent diets provide uniform nutrition. They are fixed-formula diets designed to minimize the nutrient variances which otherwise could occur if the ingredient composition of a diet were altered from one batch to the next.

Protein is supplied primarily by plant sources. Supplemental amino acids are added to provide the proper amount and balance of essential amino acids. All rodent diets are fortified with vitamins and minerals to help support the regulation of body fluids and the proper functioning of body systems to ensure the adequate growth, maintenance, and reproduction of research rodents. Autoclavable diets are supplemented with additional vitamins to compensate for losses that occur during autoclaving. Since our diets are nutritionally complete and balanced, it is not necessary to add dietary supplements.

There is no definitive point where one is able to predict when a specific diet will spoil or become deficient in one or more nutrients. The common guideline of a six month shelf life is based on longstanding practice in North America. In Europe and Asia, differences in local practices and regulatory oversight have led to Teklad standard natural ingredient diets being routinely used out to nine months and sometimes 12 months post-manufacture. This practical experience, along with literature support and vitamin testing over time, gives us confidence that these diets continue to support animal health and study integrity out to at least nine months post-manufacture. Please refer to your institution for guidance if you are unsure of local policies.

Recommended storage conditions:

  • Cool and dry; at or below 70 degrees fahrenheit with humidity ideally below 50%, but up to 65% is acceptable
  • Clean and free of pests
  • In original packaging or in a container that prevents continuous exposure to light and minimal exposure to air

Standard natural ingredient rodent diets are complete diets for rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters, that should be allowed ad libitum access to the diet. Fresh water should be available at all times.

Key points from the literature

TD.88137 has been used to accelerate atherosclerosis development in Apoe and Ldlr deficient models:

++In Apoe deficient mice, plasma cholesterol triples to >1500 mg/dL within three weeks (1, 2). Foam cell and lesion development occurs within 6-10 weeks (2-4). Fibrous plaque formation is observed at 15 weeks with the development of fibrous caps after 20 weeks (2).

++Ldlr deficient mice fed for two weeks increase plasma cholesterol to >800 mg/dL and triglyceride to >300 mg/dL (5). After six weeks of feeding, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia and dyslipidemia develop with small foam cell lesions in the aortic arch (6, 7).
