  • Fatty Acid and Essay Lipids
    Biology Essay – Lipids Lipids are a big group of organic compounds. They are made up of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen; though there is a lot less oxygen in lipids than there is in carbohydrates. Triglycerides are the most common lipid. They are made up of 3 fatty acid chains attached to a glycerol molecule linked together by ester bonds. The fatty acid chains and glycerol molecules join together during 3 condensation reactions. 3 water molecules are formed as a result. Fatty...

  • Trans Fatty Acids - 438 Words
    What are trans fatty acids, and where do they come from? We're used to hearing about saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids - which come from animal fats (meat, lard, dairy products) as well as tropical oils such as coconut and palm oils - raise the levels of LDL cholesterol. Unsaturated fats - which come from vegetable oils - in general, do not increase cholesterol levels, and may reduce them. Because saturated fatty acids were found to be bad for you a couple decades...

  • Omega 3 - fatty acids
    The American diet has changed over the last 2 centuries. The consumption of omega-3 fatty acids have decreased in the American diet. The body cannot synthesize omega-3, so it must be taken from the diet, such as fish and nuts. There are two types of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). There are studies that have shown EPA and DHA fatty acids may decrease the risk of depressive disorder, postpartum depression, and bipolar disorder. It is done by...

  • Lipids: Fatty Acid and Amp
    The measurement of parameters such as oil and fat content help define product quality for many agricultural and food products. These values are widely used to determine energy content and to calculate the proportions of other food components. In addition oil and fat content significantly affect the texture, perceived quality and the flavour of products. (Whitney, Rolfes, Crowe, Cameron- Smith, & Walsh, 2011). An accurate and precise quantitative and qualitative analysis of lipids in food is...

  • Essential Fatty Acids - 1913 Words
    Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are fats that are required by the human body, but cannot be made by the body; therefore they must be obtained from external forces such as food. EFAs are the building blocks of all fats and oils and are required for both metabolic processes and for fuel. EFAs form the main component in the fats carried in our blood stream (triglycerides), fats stored in our bodies and of cell membranes (phospholipids). (Erasmus, 1993), (Wikipedia, Essential Fatty Acids, 2012) Two...

    Lay Public (FINAL draft) Benefits of Omega 3 Fatty Acids In the rush to cut calories, reduce cholesterol intake, and avoid saturated fats, many of us have embraced low-fat diets and low-fat foods. But some fats are necessary and "essential" for health. These fats show great promise for fighting the onslaught of heart disease and diabetes, possibly even cancer. What are these "good" fats—and how do we get enough of them? The benefits of Omega 3 fats have been researched for quite some time...

  • the relationship between triglicerides and fatty acids
    Fatty acids and glycerol are the sub unit of most lipids. In the synthesis of a fat or oil three fatty acid molecules combine with one molecule of glycerol to form a triglyceride. Triglycerides make up about 95% of all dietary fats. This is formed by condensation (water is lost). Triglycerides are the chemical form in which most fat exists in food as well as in the body. They're also present in blood plasma and, in association with cholesterol, form the plasma lipids. Fig 1.0...

     Biochemistry Western Governors University A: Fats are made up fatty acids and a glycerol. They are stored in cells known as adipocytes throughout the body. When the body needs energy the stored fats are broken down through the process of metabolism and beta oxidation (Livestrong.com, n.d.). For example, triacylglyceride or triglyceride are broken down into their separate parts, fatty acid chains and a glycerol. The body will always metabolize the glycerol first...

  • Saturated Fats from Nonsaturated Fats
    a. SATURATED FATS FROM NONSATURATED FATS An unsaturated fat is a fat or fatty acid in which there is at least one double bond within the fatty acid chain. A fat molecule is monounsaturated if it contains one double bond, and polyunsaturated if it contains more than one double bond. Where double bonds are formed, hydrogen atoms are eliminated. Thus, asaturated fat has no double bonds, has the maximum number of hydrogens bonded to the carbons, and therefore is "saturated" with hydrogen atoms. In...
