Fat and Meat Fatty Acid Profile of Rabbits Fed Different Fat Content and Dehydroepiandrosterone Supplementation Diets

Authors : P.G. Peiretti and G. Meineri

Abstract: The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) on the perirenal fat and Longissimus Dorsi (LD) muscle Fatty Acid (FA) profile of rabbits fed diets with low (3%) and high fat (13%) contents. DHEA was given in the diet (0-0.02%) to 15-week-old male New Zealand White rabbits for 3 months. At the end of the experimental period, the rabbits from each group were slaughtered without fasting and the perirenal fat and LD muscle were collected to determine the FA profile. The results show that DHEA, at the experimental dosage, does not influence the FA profile of perirenal fat or LD muscle of rabbits fed different fat content diets.
