Linoleic Acid News and Research

RSS
Linoleic acid (LA) is an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid used in the biosynthesis of arachidonic acid (AA) and some prostaglandins. It is found in the lipids of cell membranes. It is abundant in many vegetable oils, especially safflower and sunflower oils. It is a colorless liquid.
