A long-chain carboxylic acid that contains no C==C double bonds. See unsaturated fatty acid.
a fatty acid carrying the maximum possible number of hydrogen atoms (It doesn't have any double bounds).
A fatty acid in which carbon is joined with four other atoms; i.e., all carbon atoms are bound to the maximum possible number of hydrogen atoms. A saturated fat is composed of triglycerides in which most of the fatty acids are saturated.

A fatty acid with no double bonds tween carbon atoms; it holds all of the hydrogen that can be attached to the carbon atoms
a fatty acid whose carbon chain cannot absorb any more hydrogen atoms; found chiefly in animal fats
Fatty acid that has no double bonds between its carbon atoms and thus holds all of the hydrogen it can hold. A saturated fat is one that contains a relatively high proportion of saturated fatty acids.
Fatty acid containing a single carboxyl group (COOH) and a straight unbranched carbon (C) chain with no double bond.
A fatty acid that has the maximum number of hydrogen atoms that it can hold, with no unsaturated carbon molecules. Saturated fatty acids tend to be solid at room temperature.
A fatty acid that has the maximum possible number of hydrogen atoms attached to every carbon atom. It is said to be "saturated" with hydrogen atoms. Saturated fatty acids are mostly found in animal products such as meat and whole milk. Saturated fat: A fat made of saturated fatty acids. Butter and lard are saturated fats. Saturated fats tend to raise levels of LDL- cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) in the blood. Elevated levels of LDL-cholesterol are associated with heart disease.
A fatty acid, the carbon chain of which contains no ethylenic or other unsaturated linkages between carbon atoms (e.g., stearic acid and palmitic acid); called saturated because it is incapable of absorbing any more hydrogen.
A fatty acid containing the maximum possible number of hydrogen atoms. Saturated fatty acids are primarily a combination of carbon and hydrogen atoms.
a form of fatty acid in which all carbon atoms are linked to hydrogen ions; it cannot take up any more hydrogen atoms.
