Fatty acid composition and conjugated linoleic acid of meat from lambs fed diets containing moist-heat treated legume grains

J. Seifdavati, R. Seyed sharifi

This experiment was carried out to study on nutritional manipulation of the saturated fatty acid composition of lamb meat. 42 lambs diets of the seven groups differed in the protein source used in the concentrate, soybean meal group (SBM), bitter vetch group (BV), common vetch group (CV) and chickling vetch group (CLV). The linolenic acid was higher in meat from CV lambs than in meat from SBM, BV and CLV animals. In meat from CV lambs, CLA was higher than in meat from lambs of the other groups. Lambs fed Whole legume seeds-hay diets, inclusion of CV grain, as dietary oil seed with hay during fattening led to an increase in CLA content from 1.15 (SBM diet) to 2.23(CV diet) g/100 g fatty acid methyl esters. The use of legume seeds such as bitter vetch, common vetch and chickling vetch in lamb diets positively affected intramuscular fatty acid composition.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. Papers on non-insect groups are no longer accepted. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Call for Papers
Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research. This has become the need felt in scientific research due to the emphasis on intra-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary approach.
