Background: Bigi soft drinks are carbonated drinks produced by Rite Foods Limited. The
company is an indigenous company in Nigeria. Before 2016, Coca-cola bottling company and 7up
bottling company products were the dominant soft drinks in Nigeria. Rite Foods Limited introduced
carbonated soft drinks into the Nigerian market in 2016 and have favourably competed with the
existing products. As at today, Bigi soft drinks are the dominant soft drinks in Nigeria because of
their palatable taste, large volume and low price.
Aim: This study sought to investigate the effect of Bigi soft drinks on fasting blood glucose and lipid
profile of Wistar rats.
Methods: Thirty-five adult Wistar rats were used for this study. They were randomly divided into
seven groups of five rats each after seven days acclimatization. They were treated accordingly:
animals in group 1 were administered distilled water, those in group 2 were administered Bigi Cola those in group 3 were administered Bigi Apple, those in group 4 were administered Bigi Tropical,
