Enrichment with Fatty Acids
False flax is cultivated as an oilseed crop predominately in Europe and North America. It is known for its popularity as a biofuel source. Camelina meal is a viable dietary source of n-3 fatty acids for poultry and its dietary inclusion results in eggs enriched with n-3 fatty acids. In addition, the fatty acid composition in laying hen eggs can be beneficially modified by C. sativa seed oil.
