The enrichment of eggs with omega-3 fatty acids and their effects in humans


, : The enrichment of eggs with omega-3 fatty acids and their effects in humans. Recent advances in animal nutrition in Australia 1991: 256-270

In experiment 1, laying hens were given diets containing fish oil, sunflower oil, linseed oil or water 4 or 8 g for 5 days. In experiment 2, laying hens were given diets containing 0 or 7% cod liver oil, canola oil or linseed oil. Plasma cholesterol, triglycerides and high density lipoproteins in blood samples from hens showed no dietary effect. Cholesterol in eggs (g/100 g yolk) was lower on the canola (2.02) and on the linseed (1.98) than on the fish oil and commercial diets.
