Saturated Fatty Acids -

  1. These are solid at room temperature.
  2. These are metabolically less active so have a tendency to deposit in the body (synthesized in body)
  3. These are more in animal fat. e.g. Ghee, butter.
  4. These are those fatty acids where all the carbon atoms of the hydrocarbon chain are linked by single bonds.
  5. Saturated fatty acids have high melting point.
  6. Cannot take more hydrogen.
  7. Increase blood pressure.
