OBJECTIVES: There is no convincing evidence that krill oil (KO) consumption results in a higher incorporation of long chain ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids into blood lipid fractions than fish oil (FO). This study examined the postprandial plasma lipidomic responses to KO supplementation compared with FO supplementation in healthy women. METHODS: Ten women (aged 18-45 y) consumed a high-fat (15 g of olive oil) breakfast, supplemented with 5 g of KO or FO in a randomized crossover study with a minimum 7-d washout period between the supplementations. Plasma samples collected at the fasting state and at 3 and 5 h postprandially were analyzed using liquid chromatography electrospray ionization-t..
