2 Objectives for today: Review chemical structures of lipids Review sites of digestion and mechanisms of absorption

3 Lipids: a broad and diverse range of structures Soluble in organic solvents (hydrophobic) Of biological origin Most also have hydrophilic groups

4 Role of Dietary Lipids Provide a dense energy supply (9 kcal/g) Provide “mouth feel” Increase satiety by slowing intestinal transit time Supply essential fatty acids Facilitate absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K)

5 Classes Fatty acids Saturated, nonsaturated Acylglycerols (Glycerides) Mono-, di-, triacylglycerols ~95% of dietary lipid intake Phospholipids

6 Classes (cont.) Nonglycerides Sterols and steroids Cholesterol, steroid hormones, vitamin D, bile Sphingolipids, etc. Complex lipid derivatives Glycolipids Lipoproteins

7 Fatty acid structure Hydrocarbon chain (4 to 28 carbons long) Usually even carbon numbers (some fish FA may have odd carbon numbers) Carboxyl end (hydrophilic) Methyl end (hydrophobic) Unsaturated = double bonds cis configuration kinks the hydrocarbon chain trans configuration does not kink the chain Monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA): 1 double bond Polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) : > 2 double bonds

12 Fatty acid nomenclature Common name: palmitic acid, palmitoleic, arachidonic 2200 system counts from the carboxyl end: 16:0, 16:1 9 , 20:4 5,8,11,14 n (or ω ) system counts from the methyl end: 16:0, 16:1 (n-7), 20:4 (n-6) Double bonds are always separated by three carbon atoms

15 Two Essential Fatty Acids Humans lack 12 and 15 desaturases and therefore cannot synthesize linoleic acid and α -linolenic acid These two fatty acids must be obtained from plants These two fatty acids generate two families of eicosanoids (20-carbon fatty acids with potent activities)
