From Life..... For Life
We are witnessing an interesting technological moment in which the use of AI tools, such as the well-known ChatGPT, the use of which millions of people have experienced in recent months for the most diverse functions.
Specifically, applied to the world of animal nutrition, we have asked ChatGPT "what are oleins?" The response generated could not be more correct:
«Oleins are a type of fatty acid commonly found in vegetable oils, such as olive oil, sunflower oil, canola oil and soybean oil. They are classified as monounsaturated fatty acids, meaning they have a double bond in their carbon chain.
Oleic acid is the most common type of olein and represents a large proportion of the fatty acids found in vegetable oils. It is a key component of the Mediterranean diet and has been associated with a variety of health benefits, such as improving cholesterol levels, reducing inflammation, and lowering the risk of heart disease.
Oleins are often used in the food industry as a source of healthy fats and as a substitute for trans fats, which are considered less healthy. They are also used in the production of soaps, detergents and cosmetics due to their emollient properties.
