The aim of this work was to study fatty acid profile of pig meat after probiotic administration. Thirty post-weaning pigs (25th day of age) were distributed into 2 groups: Control (n= 15) and Probiotic (n= 15). Each experimental group was fed ad libitum on a commercial diet during 35 days. Lactobacillus amylovorus and Enterococcus faecium mixed culture (108 CFU/ml) was daily orally delivered to Probiotic Group. At the end of the assay six pigs, randomly selected of each group, were slaughtered and muscle samples (Longissimus dorsi) were taken for fatty acid analysis. Animal tissues from Probiotic Group exhibited an increased on monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids; furthermore linoleic acid (C18:2), linolenic acid (18:3) and cis-9,trans-11 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) concentrations were significant higher (p<0.05) compared with values from Control Group. These results suggest probiotic administration could be useful to modify and improve fatty acid profile of pig meat.
