a,b,c,d,e,fDifferent superscripts indicate significant differences between oils (one-way ANOVA followed by Tuckey test, ).
ΣSFA = sum of myristic, palmitic, margaric, stearic, arachidic, behenic and lignoceric acids; ΣMUFA = sum of palmitoleic, oleic and gadoleic acids; ΣPUFA = sum of linoleic and linolenic; ΣPUFA n-3 = linolenic acid; ΣPUFA n-6 = linoleic acid.
