Provides researchers, medical personnel, nutrition students, and others with an up-to-date view of several aspects of fat digestion and absorption and describes potential and realized applications. Topics addressed include enzymatic aspects of fat digestion in the gastrointestinal tract; the uptake of fat digestion products in the brush border membrane, the intracellular transport, and incorporation of these substances in glycerolipids and chylomicrons, or their portal transport; methods used to evaluate fat absorption; the effects of the triglyceride structure on fat digestion and absorption; an overview of fat absorption and studies related to malabsorption due to pancreatic and bile acid deficiency states; the effects of simulated household heating on fat absorption; and the reduction of fat uptake, either by feeding unabsorbable food fats or by interference with the digestion process of usual food fats by pharmacological means.
