General Triglyceride Catabolism General Triglyceride Catabolism - Fatty acids in triglycerides (TG) are  the major source of  energy  in the body. TG are stored in adipocytes or are  found in dietary fat. - 40% of daily energy requirement of people in industrial  countries is met with TG. - Main tissues using fatty acids as energy source are  liver,  heart and resting skeletal muscle - A 70kg male has about 7 kg of lipid. A 65 kg female has  about 14 kg of lipid. This is adequate for about a  month  of starvation.

-There are carbohydrate stores for only   about a day -Carbohydrate and protein yield about  4 kcal      energy/g, whereas, triglycerides yield about  9 kcal  of  energy/g     - Excess dietary  carbohydrate is converted  into TG - Two reasons for using fat as an energy storage form  are its high energy yield/g and since fat is very  hydrophobic, it can be stored in a  compact  form.

Utilization of Dietary Fats Utilization of Dietary Fats Bile salts and pancreatic lipases in the small intestines  lead to  breakdown  of dietary fats to fatty acids,  glycerol, mono- and diglycerides for absorption into  the intestine. These absorbed products are used to  re-synthesize   triglycerides (TG) in the intestinal cells and the TG  are then  distributed  to various tissues in the body by  lipoproteins.
