Introduction to Fatty Acids

Fatty acids are the long hydrocarbon chains present in triglycerides and phospholipids. Fatty acids can be categorized as saturated, monounsaturated and poly-unsaturated fatty acids. These acids are linear in structure and do not possess double bonds and are known as saturated fatty acids. The fatty acids which have single double bonds are called monounsaturated and fatty acids which have multiple double bonds are called poly- unsaturated.

Essential fatty acids cannot be produced within the human body and are to be obtained from external sources such as vegetable oils, plants, nuts & seeds, animal fats and other sources. Essential fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6 are crucial for the development, functioning and maintenance of the brain and other nervous tissues, for vision processes, for the improvement of immune and inflammatory responses, for maintaining the concentrations of triglycerides, aids in lowering the risk of heart diseases and maintain normal blood pressure. Fatty acids are important dietary sources of fuel for animals also as many cell tissues can use either glucose or fatty acids for their purpose of metabolism.
