Abstract: Most of Sudanese take sesame oil with the popular meal, kidney beans (foul). The average Sudanese consumption of sesame oil with "foul" was found to be 9.58%. In this study, sesame oil was investigated for its effect on serum level of cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol in normocholesterolemic and hypercholesterolemic diet fed rats. The experiment was divided into two phases, short term treatment (for 7 days) and long term treatment (treatment continued for 28 days). Sesame oil (10%) when administer to hypercholesterolemic diet fed rats increased serum cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol significantly. In normocholesterolemic rats, sesame oil has no significant effect on serum lipids profile.
