There were analyzed nutrient contents and fatty acid profile in meat from fatteners managed and fed under the conventional and organic production conditions as well as in chosen pork-butcher’s meat products from organic fatteners. The meat obtained from organic fatteners showed a slightly higher nutrient contents compared to those managed at the conventional production system. A percentage of full fat flax seeds (5%)in organic diets contributed to an increased linolenic acid level (18:3,n3) in lipids of the longissimus and adductor muscles as against the animals fed conventional diets supplemented with 2% soya bean oil. Among the pork-butcher’s meat products under study, i.e. loin, back bacon sausage, pork hunter sausage, smoked bacon and kabanos dry pork sausage, smoked bacon was proven to have the most favorable nutritional fatty acid composition for human consumption.
