The mineral content (zinc, iron, magnesium, and calcium) in the liver, spleen, and thymus of male Balb/C mice was analyzed. Animals were fed, over 21 d, diets enriched with corn oil (FCO diet) or olive oil (FOO diet) (5% addition to standard pellet, w/w). Olive oil with predominant oleic acid (C18:1, n-9) had a quite different composition than corn oil, in which linoleic acid (C18:2, n-6) prevails. The zinc and magnesium tissue concentrations were not changed in either group. The calcium concentration in liver as well as the calcium concentration in spleen increased in mice fed both the FCO and FOO diets. Furthermore, mice fed both the FOO and FCO diets had increased spleen iron concentration. Mice fed the FCO diet had increased thymus calcium concentration compared to controls. The results show the effect of diets with unsaturated, particularly polyunsaturated fatty acids, on the calcium and iron concentration in some organs.
