Cardiovascular disease is still the world’s leading cause of death [1]. Dyslipidemia is one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Treatment of dyslipidemia with pharmaceutical or lifestyle therapies has been found to reduce cardiovascular disease-related mortality [2,3], emphasizing the relevance of addressing dyslipidemia in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Dyslipidemia is caused by a disruption in lipoprotein metabolism, of which dietary fat absorption is a prominent component. Therefore, it is essential to understand how the small intestine absorbs dietary lipids and transport them as lipoproteins, namely chylomicrons and very low-density lipoproteins.
