Although oxidized fats are widely considered to have detrimental effects on human health, a large number of feeding studies with experimental animals have consistently demonstrated that oxidized fats, compared with fresh fats, cause a reduction in the concentrations of triacylglycerols and cholesterol in liver and plasma. The reason for these effects became clear when recently it was shown that thermo-oxidized fats contain characteristic substances such as hydroxylated fatty acids and cyclic… CONTINUE READING
