The absorption of fat from the intestinal tract is a poorly understood body process. The lack of understanding is the result of having available only cumbersome and inaccurate conventional methods with which to study fat absorption. Certain large gaps which exist in our knowledge of the intermediary metabolism of lipids also contribute to this situation. The availability of isotopically labeled fat provides a new, simplified and more specific tool for the study of fat absorption. One of us (D. A. T.) has developed a method for the preparation and use of I131-labeled fat in the study of the absorption, utilization
