Abstract: The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of Canola Oil (CO) on the carcass selected tissues of male broiler chickens. A total of 90 Ross 308 strains were randomly divided into 3 experimental treatments with 3 replicates were arranged in a completely randomized design. The experimental period lasted 6 weeks. Experimental diets include basal diet with 0% CO; basal diet with 2% CO and basal diet with 3% CO. Meat fatty acids profiles with Gas Chromatography technique were determined. According to results the MUFAs content for breast meat in T2 and T3 treatment were significantly (p<0.05) decreased compared to control group but in thigh meat MUFAs contents compared to control group significantly (p<0.05) increased. For PUFAs a similar response was observed in breast and thigh meat and was achieved significant changes in PUFAs contents compared with control group but for breast meat more incorporation of PUFAs than thigh. For increase of nutritional value of broiler meat, 3% of canola oil suitable for enrichment.
