Feeding flaxseed enhances deposition of omega-3 fatty acids in broiler meat portions in different manner

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Feeding a diet containing 12% flaxseed for 36 d significantly increased the n-3 fatty acid deposition in broiler meat. Based on this study, consuming 100 g of such fatty acid-enriched breast meat, whole leg or wing, a total of 0.2, 1.6 and 2.0 g of n-3 fatty acids, including 10.4, 20.3 and 25.3 mg of docosahexaenoic acid, respectively, would be provided by each portion, which offers consumers an alternative to enhance their daily n-3 fatty acid intake.
