Fatty acids in fish and beef and their nutritional values: A review

  title={Fatty acids in fish and beef and their nutritional values: A review},
  author={Kassim Ali Abbas and Ainun Zuriyati Mohamed and B. Jamilah},
  journal={Journal of Food Agriculture \& Environment},
This review aims to summarize the latest developments and recent knowledge regarding the fatty acids in fish and beef, their profiles and nutritional values. The paper covered the types of different fatty acids such as unsaturated fatty acids (UFA), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), especially the omega-3 in different fish species. The study also summarized the nutritional values of the fatty acids as compared to those in other animal species. However, the strategies influencing the fatty…

Farmed Versus Wild Fish Consumption in Relation to Fatty Acid Composition in the Kingdom of Bahrain
Fish protein contains all the essential amino acids and it is an indispensable dietary source of some vital minerals like iodine, selenium, iron, zinc and some vitamins like vitamin B, A, D and E
Differences in omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids composition among Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) families
Fish and seafood are considered as the main sources of highly unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids in the human diet and has lots of health beneficial advantages. However, due to the shortage of fish oil
Comparative study of properties and fatty acid composition of some neat vegetable oils and waste cooking oils
Vegetable oils have been used as a feedstock for fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) production. The high cost of neat vegetable oil and its impact on food security have necessitated its replacement as
Retinol, alpha-tocopherol and fatty acid content in Bulgarian black Sea fish species
Relatively high levels of retinol and alpha-tocopherol, FA composition, n3/n6 FA and PUFA/SFA ratios indicate that these fish species have good nutritional quality.
Candidate genes and fatty acids in beef meat, a review
Abstract This article reviews current knowledge on candidate genes and fatty acids in beef meat. It highlights the general situation of beef cattle in the world, the anatomy, and genetics of cattle,
Fatty Acid Profile of Muscles of Freshwater Fish from Olsztyn Markets
Fatty Acid Profile of Muscles of Freshwater Fish from Olsztyn Markets The aim of the present study was to determine the profile of fatty acids in muscle lipids of freshwater fish: carp (Cyprinus
Improvement of serum lipid parameters in consumers of Mexican Wagyu-Cross beef: A randomized controlled trial.
New evidence is found based on a clinical trial that beef with a favorable fatty acid composition is a key factor in improving parameters associated with consumer health and confirms that meat FA composition isA key point for redirecting cattle breeding strategies and promotes beef as a healthful protein source.


Meat fatty acid composition as affected by fatness and genetic factors: a review
Although there is potential for genetic change, incorporating fatty acid composition as a goal in classical breeding programs does not seem worthwhile at the present and biochemical and molecular genetic studies should be encouraged to unravel the mechanisms responsible for differences in the metabolism and incorporation of specific fatty acids in meat.
Lipid Content and Fatty Acid Composition of 15 Marine Fish Species from the Southeast Coast of Brazil
All the studied species exhibited an n-3/n-6 ratio higher than 3, which confirms the great importance of Southeast Brazilian coast fish as a significant dietary source of n- 3 PUFA.
Effect of breed on the deposition in beef muscle and adipose tissue of dietary n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
This study investigated the effects of dietary n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) on muscle fatty acid composition and content in two cattle breeds; the Holstein-Friesian, a dairy breed, and the
Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Cardiovascular Disease: New Recommendations From the American Heart Association
Large-scale epidemiologic studies suggest that people at risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) benefit from consuming omega-3 fatty acids from plants and marine sources.
Effect of diets rich in N-3 polyunsatured fatty acids on muscle lipids and fatty acids in Belgian Blue double-muscled young bulls.
The results show that the fatty acid composition of the feed during the earlier periods of life of the animal were important and influenced the final intramuscular fatty acid compositions of bulls at slaughter.
Fish consumption, fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, and cardiovascular disease.
Evidence from epidemiological studies and RCTs will be reviewed, and recommendations reflecting the current state of knowledge will be made with regard to both fish consumption and omega-3 fatty acid (plant- and marine-derived) supplementation.
