Two experiments investigated the quantitative relationship between dietary fat and fatty acid composition of pork. Experiment 1 was designed to establish the rate of decline for linoleic acid and iodine value of pork fat during the late fattening phase following a dietary reduction. Gilts (n = 288) were fed diets varying in linoleic acid content from 4.11 to 1.56% for 4, 6, or 8 wk prior to slaughter. The maximum rate of decline was 2% 18:2 per week and 2.5 iodine value units per week… Expand

Feed Additives for Swine-Conjugated Linoleic Acid ( CLA ) PAGE 1 PIG 07-0305 National Swine Nutrition Guide
A major challenge in the pork industry is to produce lean pigs without compromising pork quality. Pork quality includes both lean (e.g. color, intramuscular fat, drip loss or purge) and fat (e.g.Expand
Nutrient Metabolism Conjugated Linoleic Acid in Combination with Supplemental Dietary Fat Alters Pork Fat Quality 1 , 2
Interest in fortification of human foods, including pork, with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is growing and may provide benefits as a neutraceutical based on research evaluating CLA as anExpand
The effect of breed and dietary level of avocado fat on the N and energy balance in young pigs
The use of avocado for feeding pigs, PM included, should determine a high digestibility of the crude fat fraction and at the same time a considerable deterioration of N retention, probably due to an unbalanced composition of amino acids. Expand
Effect of increasing amounts of a linoleic-rich dietary fat on the fat composition of four pig breeds . Part II : Fatty acid composition in muscle and fat tissues
This paper studies the change of fatty acid profile in four different tissues of the pig (backfat, abdominal fat, and the muscles trapezius and longissimus thoracis et lumborum) in response to fourExpand
Pork fat quality of pigs fed distillers dried grains with solubles with variable oil content and evaluation of iodine value prediction equations.
Back, belly, and jowl fat samples of pigs fed control corn-soybean meal-based diets and diets containing 4 sources of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) were used to determine the impact ofExpand

Results confirmed that the diets containing 30% DDGS had no detrimental effects on growth performance, but increased the percentage of PUFA and IV and decreased the percentages of SFA and MUFA in the backfat and belly fat. Expand
Performance and fat quality of heavy pigs fed maize differing in linoleic acid content.
To formulate diets for heavy pigs, it is crucial to know the linoleic acid content of the maize used, because differences of only 0.3% can lead to significant differences in fatty acids composition of depot fats. Expand
Effect of sire and sex on the intramuscular fatty acid profile and indices for enzyme activities in pigs
Pork samples of the Longissimus thoracis were taken from 121 females and castrates that were the progeny of 5 boars and the combined desaturase and elongase enzyme activities in both the n  − 6 and n Â− 3 PUFA chains were significantly influenced by sire. Expand
Effect of different dietary levels of natural-source vitamin E in grow-finish pigs on pork quality and shelf life.
Examination of carcass characteristics, meat quality, shelf life, and color stability in pork from pigs fed five levels of a natural vitamin E (Nova-E) and one level of synthetic vitamin E indicates that naturalitamin E was effective to help reduce lipid oxidation. Expand
Long-term effects of different fat sources and vitamin E supplementation on growth performance, antioxidant status, carcass characteristics, meat quality, and immune capacity of pigs with heavy slaughter weight up to 150 kg
Both dietary fat source and VE supplementation affected the response measures in heavy slaughter weight pigs, and interaction between fat sources andVE were detected on plasma VE concentration. Expand
