ABSTRACT
The objective of this study was to determine the fatty acid composition of semitendinous muscle and perirenal adipose tissue of Sarda and crossbred Mouflon × Sarda lambs. Lambs were slaughtered at 40 days of age. Fatty acid composition was similar for S×S and crossbred SxM lambs. n-6/n-3 PUFA ratio was 2.30 in pure lambs and 2.90 in crossbred. In ST muscle of SxS lamb, index of atherogenicity was 0.95 and index of thrombogenicity was 1.01; in crossbred IA was 0.87 and IT was 1.01. Both genotypes were characterized by a FA profile appropriate in relation to their contribution to health.
