  • Today's modern diets can provide an excess of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids, which creates an imbalance in the body. (highernature.co.uk)
  • Fatty acids make up the cell walls of every cell in the body and make hormone-like substances, important for many body processes. (highernature.co.uk)
  • The science of nutrition recognizes in extra virgin olive oil the most balanced combination of fatty acids, saturates and mono- and poly-unsaturates, the most suitable of the vegetable oils for nutritional and dietetic ends. (luccagriturismi.com)
  • 1) Saturated and unsaturated fatty acids bound on same triglyceride molecules of edible plant oils were segregated each other as alkylesters of fatty acids by conventional transesterification reaction in which edible plant oils were treated with large excess of absolute C.sub.1.about.C.sub.8 alkanol under the presence of catalytic amount of alkali- or alkali-earth metal-C.sub.1.about.C.sub.8 alkoxide.

  • 2) The alkyl-esters of mixed fatty acids were treated with C.sub.1.about.C.sub.8 alkanol solution of urea to remove the alkylester of saturated fatty acids by conventional fractional crystallization as urea complexes of saturated fatty acid-alkylesters. (patentgenius.com)
  • 3) Finally the resulting alkylesters of unsaturated fatty acids, obtained by removal of saturated fatty acids by urea complexation procedure, was converted to reconstructed triglyceride oil to give edible plant oils completely devoid of saturated fatty acids. (patentgenius.com)
