CH202CR3 (3)

The molecule is shown in the Fisher projection with the secondary hydroxyl pointing to the left. The location of fatty acids in the various positions on the glycerol molecule can be determined by stereospecific analysis (9). Several theories of glyceride composition have been proposed, such as even distribution, random distribution, and restricted random distribution. The distribution of fatty acids in the glycerides is of utmost importance for the physical properties of a fat. This is illustrated by pig fat and cocoa butter, which have similar fatty acid composition. In pig fat most of the unsaturation is located in the 1- and 3-positions, in cocoa butter it is in the 2-position (Table 6).
