Component Acids of Mare’S Milk Fat

Zusammensetzung der Fettsäuren im Milchfett von Stuten

Fettsyrekompositionen i mjölkfett från ston

Summary

The milk fat from 20 mares on pasture and 9 stable-fed mares was analysed. It is richer in C18:3 than the milk of other domestic species. This was especially marked when the mares were on pasture and were not given any grain. Further, mare’s milk fat is rich in fatty acids containing less than 14 carbon atoms in their chains.

Zusammenfassung

Das Milchfett von 20 Stuten auf der Weide und von 9 stallgefütterten Stuten wurde analysiert. Es enthält mehr C18:3 als das Milchfett anderer Haustiere. Dieses war speziell ausgeprägt für Stuten die auf der Weide gingen und kein Getreide bekamen. Das Milchfett der Stute enthält weiter viel von Fettsäuren mit weniger als 14 Kohlatomen in ihren Ketten.

Sammanfattning

Mjölkfettet analyserades hos 20 ston på bete och 9 ston under stallutfodring. Stomjölksfettet innehåller mer G18:3 än vad man finner hos andra husdjur. Detta var särskilt påtagligt hos de ston som gick på bete och inte erhöll någon spannmål. Stomjölksfettet är vidare rikt på fettsyror med mindre an 14 kolatomer i sina kedjor.
