Fat in foods supplies essential diet & body tissue
needs, both as an energy fuel & a structural material
Food from animal & plant sources supplies distinct
forms of that affect health in different ways
Excess dietary fat, especially from animal food sources,
is a health risk factor

belongs to a group of chemical substances called sterols
its name comes from the body material $here it $as first identified --
chole -- gallbladder or bile sterol --
family group name
traels in the bloodstream attached to long chain fatty acids, forming
cholesterol esters

Functions Functions

body to produce it D
essential in formation of bile acids
