. Referring to Table 21.5, give an example of a saturated and an unsaturated fatty acid. Are triglycerides from animal sources generally saturated or unsaturated? Are triglycerides from plant sources generally saturated or unsaturated?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret with an example of saturated and unsaturated fatty acid. Determine triglycerides of animal fat are saturated or unsaturated.

Concept Introduction:

Lipid or fat is composed of a long chain of alkanes or esters from alcohols and fatty acids. Beeswax and paraffin are well known example of lipids. Natural lipids are specifically the esters formed from the esterification of fatty acids and long chain alcohols. Ester of animal wax derived from a various carboxylic acids and alcohols. As they are hydrophobic in nature, lipids and fat prevents water to stick on the surface of plants and animals.

Explanation

Saturated fats are the fat molecule consisting of all single bonds present in the fatty acid chain linked to glycerol molecule.

This includes fat from butter, beef etc.

Example of saturated fatty acid: Butyric acid (major source: butter)

Unsaturated fat are the fat molecule which consist of double bond in the fatty acid chain linked to glycerol molecule...
