n-3 enrichment of chicken meat using fish oil: alternative substitution with rapeseed and linseed oils.
Two sequential experiments were conducted to assess the effect of replacing a fish oil diet with vegetable oil diets on broiler chicken performance and fatty acid (FA) composition and sensory traitsExpand

Incorporation of different polyunsaturated fatty acids into eggs.
An experiment was carried out to examine thoroughly the relationships among different n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in the diet, their deposition into the eggs' fat, and their effectExpand

n-3 enrichment of chicken meat. 1. Use of very long-chain fatty acids in chicken diets and their influence on meat quality: fish oil.
We assessed the effect of a diet supplemented with fish oil (FO) on the performance, fatty acid (FA) composition, quality, and sensory traits of broiler meat. Diets enriched with 0, 2, or 4% FO plusExpand

n-3 enrichment of chicken meat. 2. Use of precursors of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids: linseed oil.
To assess the effect of supplying linseed oil (LO) in the diet on performance, fatty acid (FA) composition, and quality objective parameters of broiler meat, diets enriched with 0, 2, or 4% LO plusExpand

Change in α‐tocopherol contents, lipid oxidation and fatty acid profile in eggs enriched with linolenic acid or very long‐chain ω3 polyunsaturated fatty acids after different processing methods
The influences of dietary supplementation with α-tocopheryl acetate (α-TA) and of processing (by hard-boiling and scrambling) of eggs enriched with ω3 fatty acids, either very long-chain ω3Expand
