At what temperatures do the omega-3 fatty acids oxidize?

    At what temperatures do alpha-linoleic acid, DHA and EPA oxidize?

    I've tried using Google scholar to find such info and think its time to ask specialists.

    I don't think there is a well defined temperature at which oxidation starts. They probably oxidize regardless of temperature, it is just that as temperature goes up oxidation rate goes up as well.
