The 4 weeks study was conducted on 12 pigs divided in 2 groups (C, E). The average initial body weight for control group C was 66.42 kg±10.27 and 66.25 kg±9.88 for experimental group E, respectively. The C diet based on corn and soybean meal was characterized by: 17.46% crude protein and 3232 kcal/kg ME. Compared to diet C, the E diet had included 7.5% flaxseed meal and 1% grapeseed meal (17.60% CP, and 3200 kcal/kg ME). At the end of the experiment there were no significant differences (P≥0.05) among groups concerning the performances. All carcasses were assessed in E category, with no statistical differences between groups. Regarding meat quality, best results were noticed at E group for α-linolenic acid concentration (omega 3 fatty acid) of ham (1.29±0.04 g/100g total fatty acids) compare to C (0.51±0.01 g/100 g total fatty acids). Also α-linolenic acid concentration of tenderloin (1.12±0.03 g/100 g total fatty acids) in group E was higher compare to C group (0.6±0.06 g/100g total fatty acids), but without significant differences.
