Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are fatty acids that contain more than one double bond in their backbone.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids can be classified in various groups by their chemical structure:
• methylene-interrupted polyenes
• conjugated fatty acids
• other PUFAs
Based on the length of their carbon backbone, they are sometimes classified in two groups:
• short chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (SC-PUFA), with 16 or 20 carbon atoms
• long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) with more than 18 carbon atoms
Essential fatty acids, or EFAs, are fatty acids that humans and other animals must ingest because the body requires them for good health but cannot synthesize them. The body is capable of synthesizing most of the fatty acids it needs from food. These fatty acids are known as nonessential fatty acids. However, there are some fatty acids that the body cannot synthesize and these are called essential fatty acids.
