Example text

Bile acids facilitate the process of emulsification because they are amphipathic. Lipase enzymes secreted by the pancreas split by hydrolysis each triglyceride molecule, removing the two outer fatty acids, which can be absorbed with the remaining monoglyceride. Some monoglyceride (20%) is rearranged so that the lipase enzymes remove the third fatty acid. Phospholipids are hydrolyzed by a phospholipase and cholesterol ester by cholesterol ester hydrolase. In the newborn, the pancreatic secretion of lipases is low and fat digestion is augmented by lingual lipase secreted from the glands of the tongue and by a lipase present in human milk.

Some plant polysaccharides in foods are resistant to hydrolysis by human digestive enzymes and are referred to as ‘dietary fibre’. These polysaccharides and the group of oligosaccharides which are also not digested and absorbed in the small intestine are described as ‘non-glycaemic’ carbohydrates. 1. 1 Sugars (mono-, di- and oligosaccharides) Free glucose and fructose (Fig. 1) are found in relatively small amounts in natural foods; the main sources being fruit, vegetables and honey. Corn syrup (glucose syrup produced by the hydrolysis of corn starch) and high fructose corn syrups (containing mixtures of glucose and fructose) are used by the food industry.

The major sterols of plants (group name phytosterols) are β-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol. Cholesterol plays an important structural role in membranes and lipoproteins, and functions as the precursor of bile acids, steroid hormones, and vitamin D. Fig. 4 Structure of cholesterol and cholesterol ester. 4 Other constituents of dietary fat Dietary fats may also contain small quantities of other lipids including fatty alcohols, gangliosides, sulphatides, and cerebrosides as well as vitamin E (tocopherols, tocotrienols), carotenoids (α- and β-carotene, lycopene, and xanthophylls) and vitamins A and D (see Chapters 11 and 14).
