  • Two muscles, breast and thigh, were excised from 3 pigeon meat-type breeds (Europigeon, Wrocławski, King) and were analyzed for proximate analysis, cholesterol content, and fatty acid (FA) profile. Among the breeds considered, the lowest protein content of breast muscle was found in Kings (21.73%), whereas the highest fat (7.07%) and ash (1.11%) content of breast muscle (P <or= 0.01) was located in Wrocławski pigeons. The cholesterol content of both muscles was lowest in Europigeon (23.6 to 25… CONTINUE READING
