In a recently completed research project, Dr Sandra G. Velleman and colleagues at the College of Food, Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University investigated the effects of increased dietary omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants on the incidence and severity of wooden breast. Data suggest that early diet intervention with antioxidants will decrease the severity of phenotypic wooden breast at market age.
