Comparative study of triacylglycerol fatty acids in milk fat from two leporidae species: rabbit (oryctolagus cuniculus) and hare (Lepus europaeus)
Review articleOpen access

Abstract1.1. Fatty-acid composition of hare milk triacylglycerols markedly differed from that of rabbit milk and was essentially characterized by a 2.1 times lower concentration of medium-chain fatty-acids (M.C.F.A.).2.2. Consequently, very high levels (>70 moles %) of M.C.F.A., previously reported for rabbit milk, cannot be considered as a general characteristic of the Leporidae.3.3. General tendencies recorded for intramolecular fatty acid distribution in hare milk triacylglycerols agreed with those reported for other animal species.
