Lipids are an essential component of our body composition and necessary in our daily food intake. Conventional fats and oils are composed of glycerides of long chain fatty acids and are designated as long chain triglycerides (LCT). Body fat as well as the fats and oils in our daily intake fall into this category. In enteral and parenteral hyperalimentation, we can identify such LCT fats and oils. Soy, corn, safflower and sunflowerseed oils are typical of the LCT oils.In the search for… Expand

Lipids in Parenteral Nutrition: Biological Aspects.
TLDR
The wide range of lipid emulsions now available for parenteral nutrition offers opportunities to alter the supply of different fatty acids, which potentially modifies functional properties, with effects on inflammatory processes, immune response, and hepatic metabolism. Expand
Research on the nutritional characteristics of medium-chain fatty acids.
TLDR
Long-term clinical trials have demonstrated that MLCT and MCT result in less body fat-deposition, and MLCT oil (Trade name: Healthy Resseta) is safe and can be substitute for common edible vegetable oils. Expand
Metabolism of defined structured triglyceride particles compared to mixtures of medium and long chain triglycerides intravenously infused in dogs.
TLDR
In spite of the differences of TG molecules which would be assumed to affect the site of FA delivery and metabolic fate, FA distribution in phospholipids of hepatic and extrahepatic tissues did not substantially differ between both emulsions. Expand
Structured triglyceride emulsions in parenteral nutrition.
TLDR
Structured-lipid emulsion seems to induce less elevation in serum liver function values compared with standard IVFEs, and chemically defined structured triglycerides will make it possible to determine the distribution of specific fatty acids on a specific position on the glycerol core and therefore obtain specific activity for a specific clinical situation. Expand
Specialty Lipids in Health and Disease
TLDR
Structured lipids may offer the most efficient means of delivering target fatty acids for nutritive or therapeutic purposes as well as to alleviate specific disease and metabolic conditions. Expand
Medium-chain triglycerides are advantageous in promoting weight loss although not beneficial to exercise performance

TLDR
Results indicate that MCT feeding is ineffective in improving exercise performance and future work should focus on the health benefits and applications of MCT. Expand

Interactions between medium-chain and long-chain triacylglycerols in lipid and energy metabolism in growing chicks
TLDR
It is concluded that dietary MCT and LCT influence each other to some degree, with respect to protein and lipid metabolism in chicks, but in most cases, the nutritional characteristics of each triacylglycerol are independent of each other in growing chicks. Expand
A high-fat diet enriched in medium chain triglycerides triggers hepatic thermogenesis and improves metabolic health in lean and obese mice.
TLDR
It is found that replacement of LCT by MCT in high-fat diets improves the metabolic features associated with obesity and that medium chain fatty acids promote thermogenesis markers within cultured hepatocytes in a FFAR1/GPR40-dependent manner. Expand

Protein metabolism during total parenteral nutrition (TPN) in injured rats using medium-chain triglycerides.
TLDR
In rats with burn injury receiving hypocaloric (dextrose and amino acids) parenteral feeding, the addition of dextrose or soybean oil emulsion produced a significant increase in body weight and liver nitrogen but did not change albumin concentrations or leucine kinetics compared to those of the Hypocaloric feeding group.

Structured medium-chain and long-chain triglyceride emulsions are superior to physical mixtures in sparing body protein in the burned rat.
TLDR
It is confirmed that the metabolism of chemically structured triglycerides composed of medium-chain and long-chain fatty acids markedly differs from similar physical mixtures, and the new structured lipid emulsions may prove advantageous in feeding the severely injured patient. Expand

synopsis. Normally, rats and mice eat chow-type rations. When fed such a ration, body fat usually ranges between 11 and 18%. If a semi-purified diet high in fat is fed instead of the chow-typeExpand

TLDR
Medium-chain triglycerides, prepared from fractionated fatty acids of vegetable oils ranging from caproic to lauric, have been prepared and used in the treatment of patients suffering from malabsorption syndromes and modifications of such esters for special medicinal and nutritional uses are suggested. Expand
Overfeeding with medium-chain triglyceride diet results in diminished deposition of fat.
TLDR
The decreased deposition of fat in the MCT-fed rats may have resulted from obligatory oxidation of M CT-derived fatty acids in the liver after being transported there via the portal vein, leaving almost no MCT derivatives for incorporation into body fat. Expand
