The present investigation reports a study about the evolution, during ripening, of the fatty acid profile and thefatty acid composition in acylglycerols of three different fermented sausages industrially produced in the Calabria region(Southern Italy). Statistical analysis (ANOVA) was applied to the results obtained for the profiles to check all thedifferences between samples. The study comprised also an evaluation of the lipid oxidation level. All kind of sausagesshowed a free fatty acids profile in which the monounsaturated fatty acids were predominant, followed by saturated andpolyunsaturated fatty acids. In acylglycerols, a low content in linoleic acid (approximately 2% of total methyl esters) wasdisplayed, while that found in the free fatty acids profile was higher (approximately 17% of total FFAs). In addition, thegeneration of aldehydes through secondary lipid oxidation was clearly confirmed after long ripening period by classicalqualitative colorimetric method supported by 1H NMR spectroscopy. The differences in fatty acids profiles observed inthe free fatty acids and the acylglycerol fractions were certainly due to the high selectivity of lypase activity during theripening.
