Fat

The technical term for fat is acylglycerol. The name indicates the chemical structure: one or many fatty acids (acyl groups) are linked to an alcohol (glycerol) via an ester bond. Acylglycerols can have one fatty acid (monoglycerides), two fatty acids (diglycerides), or three fatty acids (triglycerides.) Fat is our long-term source of energy and serves as our primary energy storage.
