Fatty Acids Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Fatty Acids in Foods and Their Health Implications
Third Edition
edited by Ching Kuang Chow

Thoroughly revised to reflect the most recent research findings, Fatty Acids in Foods and their Health Implications, Third edition presents the current knowledge of fatty acids in food and food products and reveals diverse health implications.

This edition includes entirely new chapters covering:

  • fatty acids in fermented foods
  • the effects of heating and frying on oils
  • the significance of dietary ?-linolenate in biological systems and inflammation
  • biological effects of conjugated linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid
  • the role of fatty acids in food intake and energy homeostasis
  • cognition, behavior, brain development, and mood disease

Several chapters underwent complete rewrites in light of new research on fatty acids in meat, meat products, and milk fat; fatty acid metabolism; eicosanoids; fatty acids and aging; and fatty acids and visual dysfunction.


  • Includes eight entirely new chapters and several completely rewrites to incorporate the most recent research
  • Provides the latest scientific evidence of dietary fat, fatty acids, and their relation to health and disease
  • Explores the role of fatty acids in diabetes, renal disease, liver disease, cancer, and neuromuscular disease
  • Features new information on fatty acid consumption and inflammation, energy homeostasis, brain function, aging, and visual dysfunction
