I ask because based on stuff I read some years back, I've been
avoiding omega 6's - not completely, but preferring
monounsaturates and walnuts.
According to nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3138/2
Walnut fat profile is:
72.3% PUFAs (19.2% n3, 80.6% n6)
I think what Peabody was to was the ratio of omega 6/omega 3. Walnuts
rate much better in that regard than most other foods. But you are
correct - both omega3 and omega6 are PUFAs.
