Transcript

  • 1. Triglycerides and Fatty Acids Katie and Taz
  • 2. Structure of Fatty Acids
    • Fatty acids can be either saturated or unsaturated
      • Saturated being without multiple bonds
      • Unsaturated being with multiple bonds
    • They are the products of broken down fats
    Stearic acid Linoleic acid
  • 3. Sources of Fatty Acids
    • Butterfat
    • Coconut oil
    • Palm oil
    • Animal fats
    • Olive oil
    • Rapeseed oil
    • Fish oil
    • Liver fats
    • Peanut oil
    • Grape seed oil
    Fatty acids are obtained from natural oils and fats
  • 4. Triglycerides
    • Are triesters where the alcohol glycerol is esterified with 3 fatty acids
    left part : glycerol right part from top to bottom : palmitic acid oleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid
  • 5. Saponification
    • The hydrolysis of triglyceride esters, which produces soaps (the salt of the fatty acid)
    • A metallic base reacts with a fat or oil
    • If NaOH is used a hard soap is formed
    • If KOH is used a soft soap is formed
    • Soaps are usually a mixture of triglycerides and their quality depends on the oil or fat used to make it
  • 6.
