■ The fatty acids of triacylglycerols furnish a large fraction of the oxidative energy in animals. Dietary triacylglycerols are emulsified in the small intestine by bile salts, hydrolyzed by intestinal lipases, absorbed by intestinal epithelial cells, reconverted into triacylglycerols, then formed into chylomicrons by combination with specific apolipoproteins.
