Diet, rumen biohydrogenation and nutritional quality of cow and goat milk fat.
The formation of large SFA is a result of the biohydrogenation process in the rumen during which bacteria convert unsaturated fatty acid (USFA) to SFA.
Essential oil is applied as an antibacterial agent in dairy cows to inhibit the growth of Gram-positive bacteria that will be able to reduce biohydrogenation of fatty acid and produce higher conjugated linoleic acid translO, cis12 with minimum effect of fatty acid in cow's milk (84).
In ruminants, the processes of lipolysis and biohydrogenation which occur in the rumen level substantially modify the dietetic lipids, so that the poly-unsaturated fatty acids are present in small amounts in the fat of the adipose deposits in these animals; furthermore, it highlights that these are almost exclusively restricted to the phospholipid fraction (Wood et al., 2008).
Ruminant meat can be considered a good dietary source of several nutrients (Wahle et al., 2004), however, it has also been censured for its high level of intramuscular fat, which is particularly rich in SFA due to rumen biohydrogenation of dietary fats, especially PUFAs (Doreau and Ferlay, 1993; Glasser et al., 2008).
Unsaturated fatty acids serve as electron acceptors during biohydrogenation, causing this depression in CH4 production.
On the other hand, grape seed inclusion in the diet of dairy sheep can decrease the SFA and increase MUFA and PUFA milk concentration [30], which was thought to be caused by this subproduct being a rich source of linoleic acid and polyphenols, which could modulate the ruminal biohydrogenation of PUFA.

In addition, 5beta-cholestanone, an oxidation product of 5beta-coprostanol formed via biohydrogenation of cholesterol, decreased by 5-fold in diazinon-treated female mice, which was not statistically significantly altered in male mice.

The conjugated linoleic acid CLA is formed by rumen biohydrogenation of intermediate linoleic acid (Lee, 2013) and if the biohydrogenation is not complete, it may be absorbed by the gut epithelium and will be part of the animal fat (Ladeira & Oliveira, 2007).
