Case description

"Mechanism of fat digestion and absorption Fat is an important component of our diet. It is both protective and contributes to heart disease depending on the type of fat. Fat can be saturated on unsaturated foods which are more complicated in structure. In its complete form the fats are made up of triglycerides. Triglycerides are made up of three fatty acids joined to a glycerol backbone. We need to break down fat into its building blocks to be absorbed by our body."
