Fatty Acid Profile
Smoflipid® has a 2.5:1 ω-6:ω-3 fatty acid ratio11
- The fatty acid ratio in Smoflipid® is in line with expert recommendations.12-15
- The ω-6:ω-3 fatty acid ratio in Smoflipid® has not been shown to improve clinical outcomes compared to other intravenous lipid emulsions.
Smoflipid® has a lower amount of ω-6 fatty acids compared to 100% soybean oil emulsions11,16,17
Smoflipid® meets the essential fatty acid requirements of adults11
