Postprandial lipidemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The postprandial inflammation that occurs concurrently with lipidemia following ingestion of a high-fat meal (HFM) may contribute to this association. Numerous individual spices have anti-inflammatory properties in vitro and in vivo in animal models and humans. However, the effect of consumption of a spice blend on inflammatory mediators has not been examined in humans in a randomized controlled trial. The objective of this study was to investigate the postprandial effect of spice consumption delivered in a HFM on inflammatory cytokine responses.
