Monoglycerides are a form of fatty acid, along with triglycerides and diglycerides. They are made up of glycerol and one fatty acid chain. Monoglycerides are found naturally in almost all foods in very small amounts. They are a type of fat, meaning that they can be either saturated or unsaturated. Monoglycerides are produced both biologically and industrially. They are naturally present at very low levels (0.1-0.2%) in some seed oils such as olive oil, rapeseed oil and cottonseed oil.
