Hempseed oil emulsion as pork back fat replacer in cooked sausages
Publication Type
Conference Paper

Meat and meat products are important sources of various nutrients that are essential for growth and development but they are also rich in saturated fatty acids (SFA) and cholesterol, which are considered risk factors of certain chronic diseases, mainly cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, obesity and type 2 diabetes

Several studies have demonstrated that the substitution of pork back-fat with PUFA emulsified oils is a good strategy to achieve healthier lipid profiles in meat products with improved oxidative stability and sensory traits

Hempseed oil represents an interesting alternative to produce new meat products, since it is an exceptionally rich source of PUFAs with a n-6/n-3 ratio of 3:1 that matches human optimal nutritional needs according to the European Food Safety Agency recommendations (3-5:1)
