FATTY ACID COMPOSITION AND CHOLESTEROL CONTENT OF F1 DORPER CROSSBRED SHEEP

Interest in the study of fatty acids, particularly the total quantity of saturated and unsaturatedfatty acid in muscle, is mainly to understand their role in affecting human health. A previousstudy suggested that a decrease in saturated fatty acid (SFA) level and a concomitantincrease in the monounsaturated (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) content ofruminant meat may confer benefits to human health (1).The present study was undertaken to assess the intramuscular fatty acid composition andcholesterol content of different muscles taken from F1 Dorper crossbred carcasses (n=7).The sheep were slaughtered with an average weight of 46 kg and age 18 mo.
