    Background: Vaccenic acid (11-trans octadecenoic acid; VA), a major trans fatty acid in the fat of ruminants, is produced in the rumen and converted in tissues to rumenic acid (9-cis, 11-trans octadecenoic acid; RA), an isomer of conjugated linoleic acid, by π9-desaturase. There are...

    Structured lipids containing behenic and medium chain (MC) fatty acids were prepared from palm stearin using 1,3-specific lipase-catalyzed acidolysis. Incorporation of MC and behenic acids was affected by proportion of substrate, type of fatty acids, reaction time, addition of water and quantity...

    Identification and quantification of saturated an unsaturated fatty acid in peach palm fruit (Bactris gasipaes, Kunth) were determinated in the mesocarpo of four varieties grown at the Colombian pacific coast. Oil was extracted using Soxhlet technique, with hexane as solvent. Results show that...

    The amount and type of dietary fats represent risk factors for several cancers. Essential PUFAs serve as precursors of several biologically active molecules, mainly endocannabinoids and eicosanoids, which participate in tumorigenic processes. However, their mechanisms still remain unclear. This...
