Fatty acid composition (mol %) of plasma triglycerides (TG) and phospholipids (PL) at d21. Proportion of ALA and total other long-chain n-3 PUFAs (C20:3n-3, C20:5n-3, C22:5n-3, C22:6n-3) in plasma TG (A) and PL (B). Proportion of LA and total other long-chain n-6 PUFAs (C20:2n-6, C20:3n-6, C20:4n-6, C22:2n-6, C22:4n-6) in plasma TG (C) and PL (D). Data are medians ± SEmedian, n = 4-5 samples/group in duplicate. LA, linoleic acid; ALA, alpha-linolenic acid. * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001 between groups.
