Saturated Fatty Acids Analysis Service

A saturated fatty acid has no double bonds between the carbons. It has the maximum possible number of hydrogen atoms attached to every carbon atom. Therefore, it is said to be "saturated" with hydrogen atoms, and all of the carbons are attached to each other with single bonds.

Saturated fatty acids occur naturally in many foods. The majority come from animal sources, including meet, salmon, egg yolks, butter, cheese and cream. In addition, many fried foods contain high levels of saturated fats. Oils, such as palm oil, palm kernel oil, and coconut oil, also contain a high amount of saturated fatty acids.

A high consumption of saturated fatty acids has been shown to play negative roles in human health. A lowered intake of saturated fatty acids has commonly been indicated for improved cardiovascular health. Saturated fatty acid is also a paracrine mediator of inflammation. It has been demonstrated to be a ligand for TLR4, and exert proinflammatory effects by activating NFkB pathway. The profiling of saturated fatty acids is widely used for investigating nutritional status, metabolic status as well as potential biomarker discovery.

Creative Proteomics is equipped with GC mass spectrometers that allows sensitive, reliable and accurate identification and quantitation of saturated fatty acids.
