The use of TMS esters allowed good GC separation of the individual fatty acids we aimed to identify (namely, palmitic and oleic acids) in all lipoprotein samples from every individual we studied (n = 15).
To obtain high quality biodiesel in terms of stability, oil must have a higher oleic acid content than linoleic acid content because it is known that a higher polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) content will impact negatively not only in the stability of the oil but also in the number of cetane which, is an important parameter considered in biodiesel production (YE et al.,2013).
Biofilm formation leads to increased P acnes virulence, manifested in part by the increased expression of P acnes triglyceride lipase, which increases the sebum concentration of palmitic and oleic acids. These changes in sebum lipid composition contribute to inducing inflammatory acne.
Lauric acid has a highly hydrophilic nature and therefore attracts more surface water vapor than both linoleic and oleic acids. Consequently, the contact angle change of coconut oil is greater than that of sunflower and jatropha curcas oil.
(2010) obtained 58.06% of the total content of unsaturated fatty acids, among which oleic acid, with average of 38.29%, and linoleic acid, with average of 13.46%.
From a panel, several significant metabolites in IPD were identified, including linoleic and oleic acids and DHEA-S, indicative of lipid and steroid hormone metabolic disorders in IPD patients.
Oil quality is related to fatty acid composition, especially with content of essential fatty acid like as linoleic and oleic acids. According to different usage of oil for human consumption or in industry different composition of fatty acid are required.
2 and 3 when lubricating with rapeseed oil and lard and after modifying them with stearic and oleic acids and monoglycerides.
Monounsaturated oleic acid lowers heart attack risk and arteriosclerosis, and aids in cancer prevention.
Another study found that long-term uncooked vegan diets resulted in decreased levels of N-3 (Omega-3) fatty acids due to high intakes of linoleic and oleic acids. Two studies found significant reductions of serum vitamin [B.sub.12] concentrations in subjects following a raw foods ("living foods") diet, suggesting that long-term adherents to a raw vegan diet should include a reliable source of vitamin [B.sub.12] in their diets.
"We could see the same kind of situation with corn producers, since many varieties grown in Mexico have similar levels of oil and oleic acids as the variety patented by DuPont," said Corvantes.
Unsaturated fatty acids, including tall oil fatty acids (TOFA), oleic acids and others, will post moderate gains through 2002.
The fatty acids with the highest concentrations in the kernel and mesocarp oil extracts of the Turkana doum palm nut included lauric and oleic acids. Since lauric acid is the largest fatty acid in the kernel of the Turkana doum palm nut as well as of the coconut (Cocos nucifera), the hexane extract of the Turkana doum palm nut is a typical lauric oil, similar to coconut oil [7].
Generally, an oil with a high content of monounsaturated fatty acid (i.e., oleic acid) is less susceptible to oxidative changes during refining, storage, and flying.
Foods high in oleic acid (18:1n-9), including oleic acid enriched beef, reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease (Adams et al., 2010; Gilmore et al., 2011;2013).
