glycerol is a common triglyceride derived from glucose.

The glycerol with three fatty acids attached is a common triglyceride derived from glucose.

The one who gets stumped about Glycerol’s use of fat (or the fat in it) is not the only one that gets stumped by this movie.

I guess you could say glycerol is the most common triglyceride that doesn’t have three fatty acids attached. When glycerol is used as a fat, it’s referred to as triglyceride. So what is the difference between glycerol and triglyceride? The answer is that triglyceride is a naturally occurring fat molecule that is found in all cells, while glycerol is a chemical that comes from the breakdown of triglyceride.

Glycerol is the byproduct of the breakdown of triglyceride, so it’s not surprising that it’s so commonly used as a fat. But the triglyceride molecules are the ones that can be used to make glycerol, so it makes sense that they’re the ones that get stumped by this movie.

“Glycerol is a naturally occurring fat molecule found in all cells in the body.” Well that’s true, but it means that it is still a fat. The word “fat” is a noun, meaning something that is made up of a single unit of matter. It’s still a fat. What is not a fat is a watery substance that is a liquid.

So what are the problems with getting glycerol, in particular for this movie, from the glycerol molecule itself? The problem is that glycerol molecules can easily stack themselves in what is commonly referred to as a fatty acid chain. This means that the glycerol molecule could potentially form a chain of fatty acids. The number of fatty acids attached to a glycerol molecule varies from one to about seven.

The first reaction that would occur when a glycerol molecule is heated to temperatures above about 200 degrees Celsius is a hydration reaction. The reaction that occurs on the other end of the glycerol molecule is a dehydration reaction, and these two reactions form a ring that looks like the rings that form when we combine three fatty acids. This is what we call a fatty acid chain or a fatty acid triglyceride. Once the fatty acids are combined, they create a liquid material called glycerol.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
