The abdominal adipose tissue deposition (a1, b1, c1, d1, e1) and the histomorphology (a2, b2, c2, d2, e2) of adipocytes of C, PAE, MetS1, MetS2 and MetS3 respectively. The deposition of abdominal adipose tissue was greater in MetS1 (c1) than C (a1) and PAE (b1) after 8 weeks of FDW consumption. The deposition of abdominal adipose tissue was lower in MetS3 (e1) than MetS2 (d1) with PA consumption. The histomorphology of adipocyte of MetS1 is different as compared to C and PAE where the size of adipocytes is increased in MetS1 as compared to C and PAE. The size of adipocyte which is indicated by diameter, perimeter, and area and the number of adipocytes was calculated. A: adipocyte, δ: diameter
