Interaction of n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids with n-6 fatty acids in suckled rat pups


The addition of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCP: C20, and C22) to infant formula may permit fatty acid accretion rates similar to breast-fed infants, and may have long-term outcome benefits, such as improved visual acuity and cognitive development. Although fish oil may provide a source of n-3 LCP, sources of n-6 LCP have been more difficult to… (More)
