The fatty acid composition of dietary fat has an important role in human nutrition because can help to reduce the risk of appearance of some diseases. In this work fatty acid profile of meat of Sarda suckling lamb was studied in order to improve meat fat quality in relation to human health. Aim of this thesis was firstly to assess the effect of different management systems, indoor <i>vs</i>. outdoor, on fatty acid profile of meat of Sarda suckling lamb. Lambs which followed their mother on pasture had a qualitatively better fat, from a nutritional point of view, than lambs raised indoor due to lower proportions of SFA and to the higher C18:3 n3, DPA and DHA cont...
