Product Description

Omega-9 fatty acids are a class of unsaturated fatty acids which have a C=C double bond in the omega-9 position. Some omega-9's are common components of animal fat and vegetable oil. There are two omega-9 fattcy acids that are considered important. They are Oleic acid which is a main component of olive oil and other monounsaturated fats, and Erucic acid which is found in rapeseed, wallflower seed, and mustard seed. Rapeseed with high erucic acid content is grown for commercial use in paintings and coatings as a drying oil.

Unlike omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, omega-9 fatty acids are not classed as essential fatty acids (EFA). This is both because they can be created by the human body from unsaturated fat and are therefore not essential in the diet, and because the lack of an omega-6 double bond keeps them from participating in the reactions that form the eicosanoids.
