Fatty acids in milk of marine little toothed whales stenella attenuata



Fatty acids in milk of marine little toothed whales stenella attenuata



Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi 47(10): 1367-1370



The composition and quantity of free short-chain acids in the milk of whales S. attenuata and the composition of short- and long-chain acids in their milk lipids were studied. The content of lipids in the milk was .apprx. 19.7%, the Reichert-Meissi value .apprx. 6.1 and the content of free short-chain acids .apprx. 3.1 meq/l. Acetic, propionic, isobutyric, isovaleric and n-enanthic acids were usually present in free form. Acetic acid was the most dominant, followed by n-enanthic and isovaleric acids. Other acids were detected in trace amounts. A series of short-chain straight acids from acetic acid to n-capric acid and a series of short-chain branched acids from isobutyric acid to isoenanthic acid were usually detected in milk lipids. Generally acetic acid was the most abundant; the straight-chain acids from propionic acid to n-capric acid were present in nearly equal amounts, but branched-chain acids were few. Long-chain branched acids in milk lipids were also present only in small amounts. Iso-17:0 acid showed the maximum concentration among the old-numbered iso-acids and iso-18:0 acid among the even-numbered iso-acids. Few anteiso acids and few iso-acids with C number lower than 13 were detected.
