unsaturated fatty acids
An unsaturated fat is a fat or fatty acid in which there is at least one double bond within the fatty acid chain. A fatty acid chain is monounsaturated if it contains one double bond, and polyunsaturated if it contains more than one double bond. Where double bonds are formed,
a fatty acid, the carbon chain of which possesses one or more double or triple bonds (for example, oleic acid, with one double bond in the molecule, and linoleic acid, with two); called unsaturated because it is capable of absorbing additional hydrogen.
An unsaturated fat is a fat or fatty acid in which there is one or more double bond in the fatty acid chain. A fat molecule is monounsaturated if it contains one double bond, and polyunsaturated
Unsaturated fatty acids are less stable than saturated fatty acids. This makes them more vulnerable to rancidity. This makes them more vulnerable to rancidity. Rancidity is the oxidation of fats that is caused by hydration (water), oxidation (oxygen), metallic atoms or microbes.

Saturated fatty acids do not contain double bonds C-C (only single bonds), whereas unsaturated fatty acids contain one or more double bonds C=C. The chain length of most common fatty acids is of 16-18 number of carbon. The triglyceride is considered as the common and simple type of fat, having three fatty acids and glyceride.

Unsaturated fats include polyunsaturated fatty acids and monounsaturated fats. Both mono- and polyunsaturated fats, One type of polyunsaturated fat is omega-3 fatty acids, whose potential
unsaturated fatty acid n. A fatty acid, such as oleic acid, whose carbon chain possesses one or more double or triple bonds and hence can incorporate additional hydrogen atoms.
In nature, cis configuration is the most common one for unsaturated fatty acids. Generally, unsaturated fatty acids into membranes are confined to the sn-2 position of phospholipids, and have 18 to 20 carbon atoms (in sn-1 position there are saturated 16-18 C fatty acids).
The types of potentially helpful dietary fat are mostly unsaturated: Monounsaturated fatty acids. This is a type of fat found in a variety of foods and oils. Studies show that eating foods rich in monounsaturated fatty acids improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease.
Oils provide essential fatty acids and vitamin E. They are found in different plants such as soybeans, olives, corn, sunflowers, and peanuts. Choosing unsaturated oils instead of saturated fat can help you maintain a healthy eating style.
Unsaturated fatty acids contain some carbon atoms that bond with each other using double bonds. So these carbon atoms can only bond with one hydrogen atom instead of two, and are said to be “unsaturated”.A fatty acid with a single double bond is a monounsaturated fatty acid, while a fatty acid with two or more double bonds is known as a
