Seasonal variation in major lipid constituents of nutritional importance in culturedLaminaria japonica Aresch., such as fatty acids, sterols, β-carotene and tocopherol, were investigated from December to October, the growing season. The total and saturated fatty acid contents were minimal in midsummer. Mono-unsaturated fatty acids gradually increased from late summer to autumn. The polyunsaturated fatty acid content (PUFA, (n-6) family) was maximal during warm months, while (n-3) PUFAs were… CONTINUE READING
