POLYUNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS (PUFA)
Polyunsaturated fatty acids are one of the three main dietary fats. From perspective of chemistry, they have more than one double bond in carbon chain.

These fatty acids are essential for our body processes in order to perform normal body functions and since our body cannot manufacture these essential fatty acids we rely on our diet to provide them. PUFAs are very important building material for cell membranes and for protecting nerves. Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are the most significant polyunsaturated fatty acids for human body. These fats are very unstable thus can be very easily destroyed by their surrounding, by light, oxygen and heat. Therefore they are best to be consumed unheated, particularly if they originate from plant source.

The most important dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids, again, are Omega-3 and Omega-6. The high amounts of Omega-3 are found in fatty fish (mackerel, sardines, salmon), vegetable oil (canola), flaxseed and walnuts. Omega-6 is found in vegetable oils (saflower, sesame, canola), pine nuts and walnuts.



Determine, under different quantities, how much of Fatty acids, total polyunsaturated (PUFAs) nutrient can be found in Oil, sesame, salad or cooking. Calculate and convert the amounts.
