Placental (a/b) and fetal whole blood (c/d) fatty acid profile at gestational day 20. Values are means ± SEM and n = 10–14 per group. The effects of maternal dietary fatty acid ratio and maternal dietary fat content were determined using a two-way ANOVA (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001). † indicates a significant interaction between dietary fat content and LA:ALA ratio (P < 0.05)
