Summary: The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects on the vitamin E content of various body samples and the oxidative stability of backfat, of a short term application of a high vitamin E dose that was given at the end of the finishing period (21 days) to pigs that had been fed with various levels of false flax expeller. Additionally, the influence on the fatty acid pattern of intramuscular fat and backfat was taken into account.
