  1. aBody weight range from 30 to 60 kg
  2. bBody weight range from 60 to 115 kg
  3. cSaturated fatty acids percentage is sum of C14:0, C16:0, C18:0, C20:0 and C22:0
  4. dPolyunsaturated fatty acids percentage is sum of C18:2 n-6, C22:6 n-3 and 18:3 n-3 (α-linolenic acid)
  5. en-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) percentage is the sum of C18:3 n-3 (α-linolenic acid) and C22:6 n-3
  6. fn-3/n-6 ratio was calculated as the ratio between the total n-3 PUFAs and the total n-6 PUFAs
