Short summary
The study was carried out to investigate the effects of Camelina and hempseed cakes in the diets of ducks on the intramuscular fatty acid profile. Our study showed that supplementing Camelina cake in duck diets makes it possible to develop functional food, i.e. meat with a significantly higher content of ALA, total n-3 PUFA and the lowest ratios of n-6 / n-3 fatty acids in muscles. Duck diet with hempseed cake produces exceptional quality meat with an enriched content of n-6 GLA.
