  1. 1. Algae and Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Louise Lundquist; [2019]
    Keywords : Algae; polyunsaturated fatty acids; EPA; DHA; omega-3;

    Abstract : The human body cannot produce enough amounts of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA), on its own, to sustain the biological functions they have. Consuming essential fatty acids is fundamental for well-functioning bodily processes. The essential fatty acids are linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). READ MORE

  2. 2. En jämförelse mellan ekologisk och konventionell djurhållning : - gällande djurhälsa, miljöpåverkan och hälsoaspekter

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Biomedical Sciences and Veterinary Public Health

    Author : Zandra Hugoh; [2018]
    Keywords : ekologisk; etikettproduktion; djurvälfärd; etik; miljö; konsument;

    Abstract : Dagens moderna konsument ställer höga krav på livsmedlens hälsoeffekter och miljöpåverkan. Det ekologiska jordbruket fokuserar främst på miljön och djurhälsan, men diskussioner förs om huruvida den ekologiska produktionen är ineffektiv. Ekologiska livsmedel växer mer och mer på marknaden, samtidigt som konsumentens krav ökar. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fatty acid composition of black soldier fly larvae : impact of the rearing substrate

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Energy and Technology

    Author : Nils Ewald; [2018]
    Keywords : Black soldier fly; Hermetia illucens; fatty acids; omega-3 fatty acids; malondialdehyde; blue mussels; waste management;

    Abstract : With an increasing world population and meat consumption the black soldier fly (BSF; Hermetia illucens) shows potential as feed for animals, while recycling nutrients from food waste. To produce larvae of high quality as animal feed, further understanding is needed of how the substrate affects the nutritional composition of the larvae. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in improving the immune system : with a focus on inflammation and Multiple sclerosis

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Salam Kamalmaz; [2018]
    Keywords : Omega-3 PUFA; autoimmune disease; immune system; inflammation; metabolism; multiple sclerosis;

    Abstract : Inflammation is part of the body’s responses to infections and injuries, but an improper inflammatory response together with the production of proinflammatory molecules can cause serious diseases. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that affects the central nervous system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of diet quality and quantity on resource use, growth and fatty-acid composition of a benthic generalist consumer.

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Adrian Grieve; [2017]
    Keywords : Food quality; allochthonous; autochthonous; consumer diet; somatic growth; fatty acids; stable isotopes.;

    Abstract : Variation in quality and quantity of food resources can affect consumer productivity responses throughout the food chain, particularly the efficiency at which basal resources are converted to consumer biomass. I performed a manipulative feeding experiment to investigate the somatic growth and fatty acid incorporation in the benthic generalist isopod Asellus aquaticus, in response to differing ratios of autochthonous (high quality algae) to allochthonous (low quality leaf litter) foods.
