Several studies have shown that the fatty acid composition of circulating lipids reflects dietary fat intake, in turn being related to health status. The fatty acid composition of plasma lipids is therefore an important parameter in studies on dietary interventions. The aim of our study was to develop a rapid and inexpensive method for the analysis of circulating fatty acids applicable to large population groups. Drops of blood collected from fingertips have been directly subjected to… CONTINUE READING
