This book provides an authoritative and comprehensive source of information on the biochemical an metabolic aspects of digestion and absorption of different dietary fats and other lipids, with minimal discussion of the physical chemistry of the process, which has been covered in great detail in previous reviews. It is intended for both researchers and practitioners in the biomedical field who require detailed knowledge of the biomedical and metabolic transformations involed in the intestinal digestion and resynthesis of dietary fats and other lipids.
