Caption: Figure 2--Proportion of 9c-14:1 (myristoleic acid; % of total fatty acids) in yoghurt compared to goat milk samples (Anglo-Nubian, n=40)".
Tridecanoic acid methyl ester, cis-8,11,14,17-eicosatrienoic acid methyl ester and myristoleic acid methyl ester were present in very low amounts.
The MUFA comprised 55.80% to 56.98% of total fatty acids, and among the MUFA, myristoleic acid ([C.sub.14:1]) comprised 1.25% to 1.49%, palmitoleic acid ([C.sub.16:1]) 5.66% to 5.93%, elaidic acid ([C.sub.18:1]) 1.36% to 1.45%, oleic acid ([C.sub.18:1n-9]) 47.31% to 48.27%, and vaccenic acid ([C.sub.18:1n7]) 0.22% to 0.23% of the total fatty acids.
The contents of monounsaturated FAs such as myristoleic acid (C14:1c), palmitoleic acid C16:1c and oleic acid (C18:1c) were higher (P < 0.05) in the supplemented groups.
pylori is attributed to lauric acid ([C.sub.12]:[[DELTA].sup.0]), myristoleic acid ([C.sub.14]:[[DELTA].sup.9]), and linolenic acid ([C.sub.18]:[[DELTA].sup.9,12,15]) (45).
Other monounsaturated fatty acids and their percentage variations included: cis-10-pentadecenoic acid (C15:1), from 0.43% to 0.57% in butter and from 0.41% to 0.55% in ghee; cis- 11- eicosenoic acid (C20:1), from 0.00% to 0.95% in butter and from 0.00% to 0.73% in ghee; cis-10-heptadecanoic acid (C17:1), from 0.28% to 0.35% in butter and from 0.23% to 0.35% in ghee; palmitoleic acid (C16:1), from 0.8% to 2.83% in butter and from 0.94% to 2.65% in ghee; and myristoleic acid (C14:1), at 0.00% to 3.30% in butter and at 0.00% to 2.6% in ghee.
A total of 35 types of fatty acid were detected but octanoic acid, tridecanoic acid, myristoleic acid, pentadecenoic acid, elaidic acid, linoleic acid, a-linolenic acid, docosadienoic acid, nervonic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid were not detected (Table 2).
