Summary "This research examined commercially representative samples of meat from the red kangaroo (Macropus rufus) and the grey kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) species collected from two geographical locations - Wertaloona Station, South Australia and Blackall, Queensland. These samples were analysed using standard procedures, and the industry was provided with information regarding specific lipid nutrients in their products. In addition to fat content, information was sought on cholesterol contents, fatty acid profiles, omega-3 and CLA contents."--RIRDC website
