The difference in the intensity decay of the peaks could be explained by the fact that the casein hydrolysis (proteolysis), lipid hydrolysis (lipolysis), and lactose fermentation processes are dependent on the milk composition, the fabrication process, pH, salt content, water activity, storage temperature, and specially, the type of yeast present in the cheese [8, 11, 30].

Several studies have emphasized the role of interleukins (ILs) in the physiology of adipose cells: ILs increase lipolysis and modify body fat distribution and production of extracellular matrix by adipose tissue [6-8].
Among these pathways, we focused on the regulation of lipolysis and sex hormone-related pathways (estrogen signaling pathway, progesterone-mediated oocyte maturation, oxytocin signaling pathway, and GnRH signaling pathway).
As a result, less invasive or noninvasive alternatives such as cryolipolysis [2, 3], radiofrequency ablation [4, 5], laser therapies [6], injection lipolysis [7], and ultrasound lipolysis [8, 9] have been gaining more attention due to their moderate efficacy, fewer complications, and ease of use.
Additionally, unlike other SCFAs, butyrate has also been shown to stimulate lipolysis in adipocytes (Berndt et al., 2012).
