10 min LC-MSMS analysis of fatty acids in triacylglycerols to compare human serum and food

Triacylglycerols (TAGs) are a type of fat for the most found in fat tissue, but some circulate in the blood. They are a major source of energy for the body. But in excess amounts they may increase the risk to develop atherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke. A triacylglycerol consists of an esterified glycerol bounded to 3 fatty acids. There are many kinds of triacylglycerols due to the distribution of fatty acids. In function of saturation and unsaturation of fatty acids some are essential for the good health and other are unhealthy. That’s why a multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) method have been set up to screen the different TAGs and their fatty acids distribution in human serum and food.
