Chapter 6 Lipids Victoria Gonzalez 1 Lipids a Fats and oils i Fats are solid at room temperature ii Oils are liquid at room temperature b All contain carbon hydrogen and oxygen c None can dissolve in water 2 Types of lipids a Triglycerides 95 of lipids in foods and bodies b Phospholipids c Sterols 3 Structure of fats a Triglyceride glycerol and 3 fatty acids i Glycerol small 3carbon carbohydrate ii Fatty acid chain of carbons with hydrogen atoms iii Mix of 2 or 3 types of fatty acids usually iv Glycerol and fatty acids are joined by ester bonds b Esteri cation the process of attaching fatty acids to glycerol releases water c Hydrolysis the release of fatty acids from glycerol 4 Fatty acids differ in three ways a Chain length i Long 12 or more carbons ii Medium 6 10 carbons iii Short less than 6 carbons 1 Shorter chain are more quickly digested b Degree of saturation i Saturated lled with hydrogen bonds 1 Solid at room temperature 2 Animal fats butter lard 3 Some plant oils palm oil coconut oil shortening crisco ii Unsaturated some hydrogen is missing causing double bonds 1 Liquid at room temperature 2 Likely to spoil oxidize 3 Most plant oils 4 Monounsaturated MUFA unsaturated at one point one double bond 5 Polyunsaturated PUFA unsaturated at 2 or more points 2 or more double bonds c Chain shape i Straight carbon chain saturated and trans fats ii Bent carbon chain unsaturated and cis fats 5 Hydrogenated oils a Hydrogenate make unsaturated fatty acids more saturated by adding hydrogen to carbon chains i How oils become solid fats b Easy to handle and store prevent spoilagerancidity c High smoking point good for frying d To improve texture of foods 6 Partially hydrogenated oils produces trans fatty acids a Health dangers of excessive trans fats from hydrogenation b Increases risk for heart disease i For every 2 rise in kcal from trans fat risk of coronary heart disease rises 23 c Now on food labels January 2006 i Changing recipesformulations ii More fully hydrogenated oils saturated fats 7 Cis and trans fats a Cis fats hydrogen is on the same side causing the backbone of the molecule to bend i Behaves like an unsaturated fat b Trans fats hydrogen is on opposite sides of double bond i Behaves more like a saturated fat Hydrogen Eh farm causes tam littlehe Elf moleculew 7 beml Tram farm Dleii infill Ellauidli acid 8 Essential fatty acids body cannot make them a Two PUFAs i Omega3 alphalinolenic acid ALA rst double bond is after carbon 3 1 Omega3 is used to make EPA and DHA 2 Sources a Plants ALA i Flaxseed and oil ii Canola oil iii Soybean oi b Marine EPA and DHA i Salmon ii Tuna iii Trout iv Shrimp c Algae seaweed is a plant source of EPA amp DHA d Omega3 fats is high in eskimo diets i Low rates of heart attacks ii EPA and DHA from marine sources iii Lower blood triglycerides iv Decreased clotting atherosclerosis v EPA and DHA is associated with many health bene ts sh oil ii Omega6 Iinoleic aid LA rst double bond is after carbon 6 1 Sources of omega6 fats a Plants Iinoleic acids i Sun ower oil and seeds ii Corn oil HL Soybeans iv Pecans b Animal archidonic acid i Meats ii Poultry iH Eggs b Essential fatty acids are

may increase cholesterol plaques b Excessive omega3 fatty acid intake i May impair immunity ii May increase risk of hemorrhagic stroke c Imbalances in omega3 and omega6 fatty acid intake i Keep n6 at 510 kcal ii Increase n3s d Intake of rancid fats i Use air tight packages ii Add antioxidants Vitamin C amp E 10 Phospholipid a Glycerol 2 fatty acids and a phosphorous compound i Phosphate group replaces a fatty acid b Synthesized by body Found widely in food FuncUons i Make up cell membrane ii Emulsi er suspend fat droplets to mix with water 1 Bile 2 Lecithin found in peanuts and egg yolk 3 Improves food products e Phospholipids surround fat i Hydrophilic heads face away from fat ii Hydrophobic tails point towards fat 11 Sterols multiringed structure Waxy substances do not dissolve in water Ex cholesterol L FuncUons 1 Used to make bie 2 Makes vitamin D activated by sunlight 3 Makes brain and nerve cells 4 Makes sex steroid hormones estrogen and testosterone ii Found in all cell membranes iii Allows for transport of lipids iv Cholesterol is not an essential nutrient 1 Liver makes 900 mgday an 79 2 Excess cholesterol is deposited in arteries and can cause heart attacks and strokes v Part of atherosclerotic plaques vi Blood cholesterol 1 Predictor of heart disease 2 Ratio of good to quotbadquot cholesterol is important vii Cholesterol sources 1 In animal products a Liver

Omega6 510 of calories Omega3 0612 of calories Omega3 and Omega6 quantities are not on food labels 13 Techniques to reduce fat intake a Reducedfat foods i Total energy is the same as normal food ii Sugar is usually added in the place of fat especially in dessert items b Fat substitutes i Can be lower in energy ii What is added in the place of fat Water diet margarine Starch derivatives Fiber cellulose Protein globules from whey protein Arti cial fat olestra a Olestra sucrose polyester i Fatty acids linked to sucrose ii Looks feels tastes like fat iii lndigestible iv Trade name Olean v Used in snack foods potato chips an U39lbUUNl l 14 Fat digestion a Mouth i Lingual lipase 1 Works on short fatty acids milk ii Breakdown of T6 with short and medium chained fatty acids in milk fat iii Adulthood little to no fat digestion b Stomach i Small amount fat digested ii Gastric lipase acts on triglycerides with short and medium chained fatty acids iii Long chained fatty acids are not

Emulsi ed by bile 2 Separated into tiny particles micelles 3 Digested into monoglycerides and fatty acids a By lipase from the pancreas 15 Fat absorption Products of fat digestion fatty acids and

triglycerides 2 Packaged into chylomicrons 3 Enter lymphatic system 4 About 95 of fat is consumed in absorbed 16 Transport of fats in the blood a Blood is waterbased fat is oilbased b A unique system of fat transport is needed c Lipoproteins fat packages 79 Compounds in bloodstream iI iii Shell of phospholipids protein cholesterol Core of lipids Types of lipoproteins 1 Chylomicrons Largest lipoprotein Contains triglycerides from diet Enter lymphatic system Travel through blood Fatty acids are absorbed by cells muscle adipose f With help of lipoprotein lipase 2 Very lowdensity lipoprotein VLDL a Made by liver b Contains triglycerides and cholesterol c Become LDL when lose triglycerides 3 Lowdensity lipoproteins LDL a Takes cholesterol to cells by normal receptor pathway b Excess LDL in blood i Taken up by macrophages scavenger cells in blood vessels 1 Scavenger pathway a Scavenger WBC remove LDL from circulation b Prevents oxidized LDL form returning to circulation
