Fatty acids that do not contain double bonds are called saturated fatty acids. A type of fatty acids without unsaturated bonds ((double bonds) in the carbon chain, which is one of the basic components of lipids. Saturated fatty acids have no unsaturated bonds, so they are stable and not easily oxidized. Animal fats such as tallow , Butter and lard contain more saturated fatty acids than vegetable fats. Coconut oil, cocoa butter, and palm oil are also rich in saturated fatty acids.
Consumption of saturated fatty acids in moderation is beneficial to fat metabolism, and excessive consumption will cause fat deposits in the body. Saturated fatty acids are also one of the main causes of elevated blood cholesterol, triacylglycerol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The secondary causes stenosis of the arterial lumen and the formation of atherosclerosis, which increases the risk of coronary heart disease.
Creative Proteomics provides LC-MS service to detect saturated fatty acid content of food and realize quality identification. In addition, we can also detect the content of saturated fatty acids in other types of samples.
Absolute quantification: Use external standard method to quantify, and use internal standard for correction, qualitative and quantitative is more accurate.
High sensitivity: we use liquid chromatography coupled with triple quadrupole mass spectrometers for saturated fatty acids analysis service (Triple Quad™ 6500 LC-MS/MS System).
