Table 4 Major fatty acids of oils1

From: The influence of feeding linoleic, gamma-linolenic and docosahexaenoic acid rich oils on rat brain tumor fatty acids composition and fatty acid binding protein 7 mRNA expression

Fatty acids (%) Oil source
  High linoleic acid safflower oil (SFO) 2 Gamma-linolenic acid oil (GLAO) Docosahexaenoic acid oil (DHAO) 3
Oleic acid 11 0 1.6
Linoleic acid 74–77 26 11.5
Gamma-linolenic acid 0 72 0
Docosahexaenoic acid 0 0 73
  1. 1 Refers to fatty acids composition as reported by the supplier.
  2. 2 High linoleic President's Choice Safflower Oil
  3. 3 Eighty-five volume of DHA 80% Ethyl Ester were mixed with 15 volume of safflower oil to reduce DHA content of oil to 72–74%
