  • Individual fatty acids, saturated fatty acids (SFA), monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), n-6 and n-3 fatty acids are expressed as a percentage of total fatty acids. Degree of unsaturation (DU) is also indicated. ARA, arachidonic acid; EPA, eicosapentaenoic acid; DHA, docosahexaenoic acid
