Data are means ± SD (n = 6), different lowercase superscripts in each column indicate significant differences (P < 0.05). Content of lipids (IMF, TG, PLIP) within breast tissue at d 1 were too little to measure by current method and were set to “0”. IMF, Intramuscular fat; TG, Triglyceride; PLIP, Phospholipids; BJY, Beijing-you; AA, Arbor Acres.
