However, lauric, myristic
and palmitic fatty acids, found in coconut oil, palm oil, butter, and lard, clearly raise LDLs and increase your risk.
These included Methyl laurate (25), methyl myristate (33) and myristic
acid (34), methyl iso-pentadecanoate (37), methyl pentadecylate (40), isopropyl myristate (41), methyl palmitoleate (46), palmitoleic acid (49), methyl palmitate (47) and palmitic acid (51), methyl margarate (52), methyl linoleate (54), methyl oleate (55), Oleic acid (59), methyl elaidate (56), methyl stearate (58), methyl 9Z,12E-Octadecadienoate (60), methyl arachidonate (63), gondoic acid (64), methyl arachidate (65), methyl erucate (69), methyl behenate (70), and methyl lignocerate (75).
The reduction of the saturated fatty acids, in particular lauric acid, myristic
acid and palmitic acid is important, considering that they are involved in some pathologies (ULBRICHT & SOUTHGATE, 1991), whereas the increase of polyunsaturated fatty acids are related to healthier products (JAKOBSEN et al.
The amounts of myristic
(14:0) (16:1n-7), stearic (18:0), and linoleic (18:2n6c) fatty acids; 20:4n-6; and total fatty acids were changed(Table 3).
Tetradecanoic acid, also called myristic
acid, is used as a flavoring agent.
The major acid components of oil found by TLC were caproic acid, caprylic acid, capric acid, myristic
acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, etc.
Contract awarded for Myristic
acid 2ea and other 36 species
and palmitoleic acid in Pakistani cottonseed varieties has not been reported in the literature, whereas in present study both fatty acids were detected in considerable amounts.
17924 G>A variants have been found to be associated with the myristic
acid content of adipose tissue in the beef cattle crossbred between Jersey and Limousin (p<0.
Supplementation of 9% DDGS in pig diet did not affect the levels of saturated fatty acids including lauric acid (C12:0), myristic
acid (C14:0), palmitic acid (C16:0), stearic acid (C18:0) and unsaturated fatty acids including vaccenic acid (C18:1-t11) and linoleic acid (C18:2).
54%, respectively, and the main difference between them was the presence of significant amounts of myristic
(C14: 0) and palmitic (C16: 0) fatty acids in inaja oil, with 9.
17924 GG genotyped cattle had lower myristic
acid (C14:0; P<0.
