Meat Sci 96:1104-10. 2014..To consistently obtain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids in Australian lamb, there must be a focus on lamb finishing diets which are likely to need a supply of α-linolenic acid (18:3n-3), the precursor for EPA and DHA...
- Relationship between muscle antioxidant status, forms of iron, polyunsaturated fatty acids and functionality (retail colour) of meat in lambsEric N Ponnampalam
CRC for Sheep Industry Innovation, Homestead Building, UNE, Armidale, NSW 2350, Australia
Meat Sci 90:297-303. 2012..It appears that the level of highly oxidisable PUFAs in muscle tissues do not play a major role in maintenance of redness at days 3-4 of retail display, but the level of vitamin E and heme iron content are important...
