Digestive lipids such as triglycerides, diglycerides, fatty acids, phospholipids, cholesterol [1], and other lipids based on synthetic origin offer improvement in bioavailability of the drug in contrast to the nondigestible lipids with which reduced bioavailability may occur due to impairment in absorption caused by retention of the fraction of administered drug in the formulation itself.
In the last step the rearrangement of the tetrahedral intermediate gives rise to an ester and a diglyceride [9].

Babcock Hall, Madison, WI 53706) are in the early stages of a three-year project to make reduced-fat (60%) table spread products using mono- and diglyceride emulsifiers from butteroil.
Enova is made from soy and canola oils, and has been processed so that 80% of the oil is present in diglyceride form as opposed to triglyceride form.
This composition of diglyceride with the unique position of fatty acids makes an important difference.
Another fat system that can be optimized to reduce fat content is through the addition of mono- or diglyceride emulsifiers to cake shortenings.
Even though, this study did not determine the fatty acid content, it can be replaced by crude fat, as it is also known as the ether extract or the free lipid content, the lipid materials may include triglycerides, diglycerides, monoglycerides, phospholipids, steroids, and free fatty acids (Association of American Feed Control Officials [AAFCO], 2014).
