Meat quality and tissue fatty acid profiles in rabbits fed diets supplemented with conjugated linoleic acid
|Kateg. publikace||Vědecké publikace impaktované|
Weaned rabbits were fed diets supplemented with a commercial preparation of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) at 5 and 10g/kg. Diets were fed for the whole fattening period (42 days) or 3 weeks before the slaughter. CLA increased the proportion of saturatedfatty acids (FA) at expense of monounsaturated FA in meat and liver. Supplementation of the diet with CLA increased CLA in lipid of meat from < 1 mg/g FA up to 36 mg/g FA. The concentration of CLA in tissue lipids increased with CLA content in the diet.Duration of CLA feeding had no effect on CLA deposition. Thus, dietary inclusion of CLA at higher concentration (10g/kg) and feeding CLA-supplemented diet for a shorter period seems to be suitable for production of CLA-containing rabbit meat.
