8. EFFECT OF LINSEED AND SUNFLOWER SEEDS IN PIG DIET TO FATTY ACID CONTENT IN THE PORK FROM MANGALITSA
9. Omega-6 vegetable oils as a driver of coronary heart disease: the oxidized linoleic acid hypothesis
The amount of fats in meat and offal from Mangalitsa ranging from 8 g/100 g in pork leg to 80g/100g in lard, while cholesterol is found from 50 mg/100g to 130 mg/100g in the same products.

By using a controlled diet, meat and fat from Mangalitsa have a special chemical composition, with monounsaturated fat in a much higher rate compared to other breeds of pigs.
In accordance with the present trend, it is important to preserve healthy products derived from traditional breeds which suitable for an extensive production system.

The aim of study was to evaluate the effect of linseed and sunflower seed in diet of fattening Mangalitsa pigs on fatty acid content in the meat.
DiNicolantonio JJ, O’Keefe JH. Omega-6 vegetable oils as a driver of coronary heart disease: the oxidized linoleic acid hypothesis.
In summary, numerous lines of evidence show that the omega-6 polyunsaturated fat linoleic acid promotes oxidative stress, oxidised LDL, chronic low-grade inflam- mation and atherosclerosis, and is likely a major dietary culprit for causing CHD, especially when consumed in the form of industrial seed oils commonly referred to as ‘vegetable oils’.
11. THE EFFECT OF THE REGULAR CONSUMPTION OF LARD FROM FATS OF CROSSBREED MANGALITSA AND BREED OF MEAT TYPE PIG ON THE LIPID PROFILE OF CONSUMERS

The results of our research led us to note differences between pig genotypes, especially between their cholesterol content and fatty acids composition in MLTT. The SL, representative of pig meat breeds, had significantly less cholesterol in MLTT compared to SBM and WM. However, differences in the content of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids were more expressed and distinct. A higher percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, which are purportedly less harmful to human health, were measured in WM and SBM breeds, whereas the percentage of saturated fatty acids was proven to be significantly higher in SL pigs.

The results of our research, as well as from other sources did not confirm the current views that exclude lard from a rational diet with a justification for a negative effect on the healthy human organism. As we observed 29 probands, we did not detect negative health changes after a regular 5 week lard consumption. From the results of our study, we can conclude that consumption of lard processed from the transgenic genotype of the original mangalitsa genotype and the breed meat-type pigs in the recommended amount is beneficial in human nutrition.
This high level of LDL cholesterol is considered a risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis. We can conclude from the results that regular consumption of lard has significantly reduced the total cholesterol levels, especially in women, this effect has been associated with lowering LDL cholesterol (p <0.01) and lowering HDL cholesterol.
