Water buffalo Mozzarela di Bufala Campana, a protect designation of origin (PDO) cheese that complies with European Union legislation, has shown potential nutritional value for its conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) content. In the current study, triacylglycerols (TAGs) and fatty acids (FAs) in commercial samples of Mozzarela di Bufala Campana were characterized over a 1-year period. The distribution of TAGs represented by CN, where N equals the number of carbon atoms, ranged between N = 24 and N = 56. The TAG and FA pattern in Mozzarela di Bufala Campana was similar to the pattern of the parent milk and the bovine counterparts. The data acquired over four season showed a significant difference between winter-spring and summer-autumn water buffalo milk fat composition. Using high-resolution gas chromatography, a cis9-trans11 C18:2 isomer was found to represent approximately 80% of the total CLA fraction.

Abstract

Water buffalo Mozzarela di Bufala Campana, a protect designation of origin (PDO) cheese that complies with European Union legislation, has shown potential nutritional value for its conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) content. In the current study, triacylglycerols (TAGs) and fatty acids (FAs) in commercial samples of Mozzarela di Bufala Campana were characterized over a 1-year period. The distribution of TAGs represented by CN, where N equals the number of carbon atoms, ranged between N = 24 and N = 56. The TAG and FA pattern in Mozzarela di Bufala Campana was similar to the pattern of the parent milk and the bovine counterparts. The data acquired over four season showed a significant difference between winter-spring and summer-autumn water buffalo milk fat composition. Using high-resolution gas chromatography, a cis9-trans11 C18:2 isomer was found to represent approximately 80% of the total CLA fraction.
