Abstract

The effects of a n-3 fatty acid (FA) enriched yoghurt on blood FA were investigated in 23 females and 23 males, who consumed 2 yoghurts/day for 6 weeks, providing 64 mg EPA and 74 mg DHA. Blood samples were collected before treatment, at the beginning, end, and after wash out. Yoghurt intakes increased blood EPA (35%) and DHA (11%) with different trends of changes in women versus men. In conclusion, the daily consumption of a yoghurt containing small amounts of n-3 FA significantly increases blood n-3 FA, providing a useful approach to reach the recommended intakes in populations.
