Title: Omega Regiospecificity Food Futures Flagship Stream 1B4
Id: 2127
Acronym: Food Futures Flagship 1B4 - Omega Regiospecificity
Investigator(s): Peter Nichols
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]

Description: The regiospecific location of fatty acids on dietary lipid molecules (e.g. on the TAG or phospholipid) is known to affect their uptake into animals. Optimising the positional location of LC-É3-PUFA (e.g. SDA, EPA & DHA) on dietary lipids molecules is therefore important for maximising their human nutritional value. Particular positional locations of É3-PUFA acids will also impact the functionality of the oils during food processing. It is also important for ensuring maximal transfer of these fatty acids into animal products when É3 oil sources are incorporated in livestock feeds. This project aims to define the optimal distribution of É3 fatty acids on TAG and phospholipids to ensure the maximum nutritional value of É3 fatty acids delivered through transgenic plants, livestock, including aquaculture, feeding regimes, or by processing through interesterification.
