Elimination of "fishy" taint in eggs from hens fed diets containing canola meal
When fed canola meal, the presence of a compound called sinapine in the meal often causes hens to lay eggs with a fishy taint.This study aims to identify the exact levels of sinapine that cause this, and to eliminate the phenomenon.
