Table 1 Fat content and fatty acid composition of the diets

From: Fish oil and krill oil differentially modify the liver and brain lipidome when fed to mice

  High fat control Fish Oil (FO) Krill Oil (KO)
Fat source (% in diet)    
Lard 21,3 % 15,7 % 15,6 %
Soy oil 2,3 % 2,3 % 2,3 %
Fish/krill oil   5,8 % 5,6 %
Fatty acids (% of total fatty acids in diet)    
Total SFA 42,9 % 34,1 % 39,7 %
Total MUFA 38,7 % 32,1 % 35,4 %

EPA 0,03 % 9,0 % 5,2 %
DHA 0,05 % 6,4 % 2,3 %
