General description

Glyceryl trioleate is derived from glycerol. It is composed of three oleic acid units and is an unsaturated triglyceride.


Glyceryl trioleate has been used:
  • as an experimental diet along with fat-free basal mix and corn oil and then to access the dietary fat absorption among mice
  • as an interfering substance to test its effect on human serum in the approach to develop rapid enzyme immunoassay for the detection of retinol-binding protein
  • as a standard in the determination of triglyceride concentration, colorimetrically using liver tissue sample from cows
