Saturated Fats: no double bonds Monounsaturated: one double bond; polyunsaturated: many double bonds 2. What’s the difference between cis and trans fatty acids? Cis has a bent carbon chain (H on same side), trans has a straight one (H on opposite sides) Adding hydrogen to make unsaturated fat more saturated yields a more trans fatty structure 3.

Triglycerides provide energy (9 kcals), provide compact energy source (storage functions), and insulate and protect the body Essential fatty acids regulate cell division and substances coming in and out of cells, transport oxygen, maintain normal kidneys, direct hormones, regulate ovulation, temperature, and the immune system o If double bond is after the third carbon from the methyl end, it is omega-3.
