The present study was conducted to evaluate the impact of feeding fermented karonda whey beverage(FKWB) on biochemical parameters of albino rats. A total of 24 albino rats (male) of age 28±3 days and weighing 80 to 95 gm were randomly divided into four groups (n=6) and assigned to experimental dietary treatment. Experimental groups consisted of control group fed with basal ration only and groups fed with basal ration containing 10%, 20% and 30% FKWB. Results showed that levels of BUN, creatinine, SGOT, SGPT were significantly (p<0.05) lower in FKWB fed groups, signifying positive impact of FKWB on functioning of kidney and liver. FKWB consumption had no significant (p>0.05) effect on cholesterol and protein levels, while its consumption reduced triglyceride level.
