Sixty barrows and gilts were given one of five diets consisting of a control (corn and soybean meal), and four similar diets with a 10% replacement of animal fat, safflower oil, sunflower oil or canola oil. Pork trimmings, from carcasses of animals fed the five diets were used to formulate sausages at fat levels of 25 and 35% and water levels [4(% protein)+ 3% and 4(% protein)+ 11%]. Sensory panelists reported control sausages were springier than those from animal fat diets which were springier than those from all high oleate treatments. Sausages from high oleate treatments were more tender and less cohesive than the others. Sausage from canola oil treatment scored lowest flavor and palatability.
