Unformatted text preview: Quantitative Analysis of Dietary Lipids John W. Newman USDA, ARS, WHNRC UC Davis Dept Nutrition Oct 2009 Dietary Lipids: • Key Sources of Energy • Biochemical Building Blocks & Substrates • Regulators/Effectors of Plasma Lipids Lipids have diverse structures and properties Triglycerides (TG) Phospholipids (PL) Sterols: Cholesterol Ester (CE) Sphingomeylin (SM) Free Fatty Acids (FFA) From Wenk. 2005. Nature. 4 :504-610. Estimating Dietary Lipid • To estimate the lipid-derived energy of a diet, the ether-extractable mass is generally used. • Good isolation of neutral lipids. Low yield of phospholipids • Within 10% of more exhaustive techniques. Triglycerides (TG) Cholesterol Ester (CE) The Dietary Fatty Acid Composition is Important: Animals Need Plants Without linoleate (18:2n6) and alpha-linolenate (18:3n3) mammals cannot biosynthesize very long-chain PUFAs Dietary Oil Composition • The fatty acid composition of dietary oils can vary greatly. Dietary Fatty Acids Influence Plasma Cholesterol and Vascular Risk • Saturated fatty acids increase LDL Cholesterol – 12:0 > 14:0 >> 16:0 >> 18:0 – Increase plasma LDL-Chol and decrease LDL turnover • MUFAs and PUFAs reduce LDL Cholesterol – MUFAs and n6-PUFAs stimulate peripheral LDL uptake – n3-PUFAs increase reverse cholesterol transport, reduce hepatic lipogenesis and increase LpL activity Mechanisms by which Dietary Fatty Acids Modulate Plasma Lipids1 Maria Luz Fernandez2 and Kristy L. West. J. Nutr. 135: 2075–2078, 2005. Food Frequency Questionnaires are one means of estimating dietary intake of lipids. How do we quantify these components? • Extraction – S eparation of target analytes from matrix • Separation – Fine resolution of “target signals” • Detection – Use of physical-chemical properties to generate a measurable signal • Quantification – Transformation of signal to a value • Quality Assessment – Evaluation of measurement error Accuracy Accuracy and Precision • Accurate and precise measurement of chemical components within a matrix • Accuracy and precision describe the degree of error associated with measurements. The Goal is to Generate Quality Data Extraction • Crude separation of target analytes from the bulk matrix & many interferences • Liquid vs. Solid Phase extraction Separation • Fine resolution of the target signal from interferences....
