What is Oleic Acid?
Oleic acid is a long-chain fatty acid found naturally in most fats, animal and vegetable oils (such as olives, palms, peanuts and sunflowers). Like other fatty acids, it is not freely available, but is mainly available as a glycerol ester.
Oleic acid has the chemical formula CH3(CH2)7CH3(CH2)7COOH and is physically odorless and colorless, but commercial samples may be yellow. Oleic acid salts and esters are called priority.
Oleic acid is a solid with a low melting point. It has two crystalline forms, the alpha form has a melting point of 13.4 degrees Celsius and the beta form has a melting point of 16.3 degrees Celsius.
Production and synthesis of Oleic Acid
Biosynthesis of Oleic acid begins with the action of the enzyme stearoyl-CoA9-desaturase on stearoyl-CoA or, in fact, hydrogenation of stearic acid to produce monounsaturated oleic acid derivatives.
Application of Oleic Acid
Oleic acids can be used in a variety of industries, including lubricants, detergents, surfactants, coatings and sealants. In addition, oleic acid is found in most cosmetics and personal care products.
- Pharmacology: Oleic acid can be used in pharmacy as an adjuvant as well as an emulsifying or solubilizing agent in aerosol products.
- Cosmetic: Oleic acid is a cleansing and tissue-strengthening agent in cosmetics. Oleic acid is one of the stable fatty acids and has a unique ability to maintain the effect of antioxidants against light and air degradation.
- Food Industry: The use of plant fatty acids such as olive oil and avocado in the diet causes a large amount of omega 9 and acids. Oleic acid has been shown to help with conditions such as diabetes. Oleic acid acts as a preservative in bakery products, which is why there are high amounts of it in these products.
Dangers of Oleic Acid
According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there is strong evidence that consuming oleic acid in edible oils, such as olive oil, sunflower oil or canola oil, reduces the risk of coronary heart disease. When saturated fat or trans fat in fried foods is replaced with stable oleic acid, consumers may be able to avoid certain health risks associated with saturated fat and trans fat.
