[¦män·ō′glis·ə‚rīd]

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).
It is now generally accepted that the antimicrobial activity, and especially anti-viral activity, in the body appears to be dependent on the digestion of triglycerides into monoglycerides and fatty acids such as the digestion of lauric acid to monolaurin.
The most common method for the preparation of "modified alkyd resin" is also the monoglyceride method [80], In related studies, at the first stage, oil has been converted to monoglyceride by alcoholysis, and then esterification process has been carried at the second stage by adding dibasic acid [4, 27, 28, 30].
Long oil alkyd was synthesized via monoglyceride method.
