Analysis of fatty acids in egg yolks of various production systems

  title={Analysis of fatty acids in egg yolks of various production systems},
  author={Jonatan Nyberg},
OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to compare fatty acid composition of different eggs. Seven kinds of eggs from three companies were taken, including organic, free range, enriched and “farmer” eggs. RESULTS: In total 15 fatty acids were identified. The fatty acids with highest content found in the egg yolks were palmitic acid, steric acid, oleic acid and linoleic acid. The saturated fatty acid content was similar in all samples. Different amount of n-3 fatty acids were observed in…

Physicochemical Properties and Oxidative Stability of Hen Egg-Yolk Oils Based on Different Laying Periods
The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the physicochemical properties and nutritional value of hen egg-yolk oils based on different laying periods. Hen egg-yolk oils were extracted

High levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are desirable in eggs for its nutritional quality, but render them vulnerable to oxidation. The aim of this trial was to assess the effects of
Nutritional quality of poultry eggs treated with a mixture of cereals and oleaginous cereals.
Use of VMLO in poultry feed has positively influenced egg quality without affecting production performance and PUFA and cholesterol concentrations in yolk.

Fatty acid and carotenoid composition of egg yolk as an effect of microalgae addition to feed formula for laying hens
It is shown that fatty acid composition and carotenoid content of egg yolk are improved by addition of N. oculata in laying hen diet.
Fatty acid profile of egg yolk lipids from hens fed diets rich in n-3 fatty acids
Abstract The effects of diet and of strain on lipid, cholesterol and fatty acid compositions of egg yolk were studied. Two hen strains (Red Lohman—RL and White Lohman—WL) and four experimental diets
Comparison of n –3 fatty acid sources in laying hen rations for improvement of whole egg nutritional quality: a review
There are numerous viable n-3 fatty acid supplements for poultry rations and despite similar DHA profiles, dietary MA was found to be more efficient for yolk DHA deposition than dietary MO.
Designer laying hen diets to improve egg fatty acid profile and maintain sensory quality
The results showed that increasing the ratio of SFA: LA+OA in layer diets has a more favorable effect on the yolk fatty acid profile compared to altering the LA content at the expense of OA, all while maintaining sensory quality.
Influence of Flaxseed Oil on Fecal Microbiota, Egg Quality and Fatty Acid Composition of Egg Yolks in Laying Hens
It is indicated that ALA-rich diets influenced both the egg and fecal microbiota in beneficial manners in laying hens although the association between the fatty acid composition of the egg yolk and the fecal microbiome was not clear.
Egg yolk fatty acid profile of avian species--influence on human nutrition.
The ostrich eggs had the highest unsaturated fatty acid and the lowest cholesterol content in relation to other avian species and the LDL-C:HDL-C ratio increased, although non-significantly, by consuming chicken, quail and ostrich egg consumption.
Technological development of functional egg products by an addition of n-3 polyunsaturated-fatty-acid-enriched oil
Egg-derived functional foods developed by technological methods are viable and could be considered as an interesting alternative, especially for catering companies.
Potential use of seaweeds in the laying hen ration to improve the quality of n-3 fatty acid enriched eggs
Results showed that incorporation of 10% M. pyrifera in the diets is an effective way of increasing the n-3 FA content, the albumen height and yolk color, but not the egg weight, when these are enriched with n- 3 FA from fish oil.

It is shown that consumption of only one enriched egg daily can contribute substantially to the recommended daily intake of n-3 PUFAs.
Double enrichment of chicken eggs with conjugated linoleic acid and n-3 fatty acids through dietary fat supplementation
Abstract Yolk fat fatty acid (FA) concentrations, sensory quality and firmness of eggs and laying hen performance were evaluated with respect to the combined inclusion in the diet of conjugated
