The researchers explained that the stiff, straight, long chains of saturated fatty acids
rigidify the lipid moleculesand cause them to separate from the rest of the cell's membrane.
Oleic acid is not considered essential and can be synthesized by the human organism from saturated fatty acids
(MINAZZI-RODRIGUES; PENTEADO, 1991).
She added: "These odd-chain saturated fatty acids
are well-established markers of eating dairy fats, which is consistent with several recent studies, including our own, that have indicated a protective effect against type-2 diabetes from eating yoghurt and other dairy products.
Palmitic acid (C16:0) and stearic acid (C18:0) were the major saturated fatty acids
while palmitoleic acid (C16:1) and oleic acid (C18:1) were the main monounsaturated fatty acids; and linoleic acid (C16:2) was the dominant polyunsaturated fatty acid in the all meat samples.
men in the intervention group significantly increased their intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids, and significantly reduced their intake of saturated fatty acids
, cholesterol and mono-unsaturated fatty acids compared with the control group
The traditional target is to restrict the intake of saturated fatty acids
to less than 10% of daily energy intake and less than 7% for high-risk groups.
The most predominant saturated fatty acid
was palmitic acid (C 16:0), comprising 68 % to 73 % for both sexes and locations.
Assessment of erythrocyte phospholipid fatty acid composition as a biomarker for dietary MUFA, PUFA or saturated fatty acid
intake in a controlled cross-over intervention trial.
The articles in the first section address the links between saturated fatty acid
intake, obesity, coronary heart disease, diabetes and cancer, as well as the benefits of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acids.
C16:0 is the major contributor to the total saturated fatty acid
level of vegetable oils including Brassica oil.
Composed of saturated fatty acid
, which is chemically stable, the oil is durable and highly resistant to thermal degradation.
Women in the lowest quartile of saturated fatty acid
(SFA) consumption lost 0.
Stearic acid, the most widely used saturated fatty acid
, will post healthy gains based on opportunities in surfactants, personal care products and polymers.
4-6] Although serum cholesterol levels are affected by the amount of cholesterol in the diet, as noted earlier, it is clear that the amount of saturated fatty acid
ingested also has an impact on serum cholesterol.
At least one saturated fatty acid
, stearic acid (a major component of the fat in beef, pork, and the cocoa butter in chocolate), appears to have a neutral effect on blood cholesterol.
