Total carbohydrates were quantified colorimetrically with the anthrone method (Roe 1955), and total lipids were assessed according to the sulfophosphovanillin method (Barnes & Blackstock 1973) adapted for small microplates.
Total carbohydrates were determined as described by [12] using anthrone (Merck, Germany) as reagent and glucose as standard.
Water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC) concentrations were determined using the anthrone reaction rate assay (Koehler, 1952).
The glycogen levels of the liver and skeletal muscles were measured by the anthrone method as demonstrated in previous studies (Carroll etal.

This glucose molecule is dehydrated to form hydroxymethyl furfural which forms green coloured product with anthrone and the colour intensity is measured at 630 nm using spectrophotometer (Lambda-45 Perkin Elmer, Shelton CT 06484, USA).
Measurements of starch and soluble sugars were carried out using anthrone sulfuric acid according to the methodology proposed by McCready et al.
The sinistrin was analysed using chemical methods, adding anthrone, taking an absorbency reading at 623 nm and subtracting the baseline absorbency.
Anthrone diluted in sulfuric acid was then added to turn the solution green, and the reaction was analyzed with a spectrophotometer at 650 nm.
Anthrone reagent were added and OD was measured using systronics UV spec model No:119 against blank containing anthrone reagent and distilled water at 640nm.
