Ácidos grasos

Ácidos grasos

Los ácidos grasos son los componentes básicos de la grasa del cuerpo y de los alimentos que comemos. Durante la digestión, el cuerpo descompone las grasas en ácidos grasos, que luego pueden ser absorbidos por el torrente sanguíneo. Las moléculas de ácidos grasos suelen agruparse de a tres, formando una nueva molécula denominada triglicérido. Los triglicéridos también se forman en nuestro cuerpo a partir de los carbohidratos que ingerimos.
