Zeta Posted October 30, 2015 Report Share Posted October 30, 2015 As I claimed elsewhere in trying to figure out which nuts are healthy - If one added [to my table of nuts and the like and nutritional content] palmitoleic acid -- the ω-7 FA macadamias are rich in -- macadamias would appear even better than they do. And as indicated in a study cited by Dean in a separate thread about the Time magazine story about dietary fat: Ruminant trans-palmitoleic acid was inversely associated with type 2 diabetes. But there are some negative associations between palmitoleic acid (16:1) and health. A good pop summary is here, in "Omega-7: The New 'Healthy Fat'?" Does anyone have a handle on the research into palmitoleic acid and health? My ~50%-well-researched conclusion squares with the pop summary above. I'm not sure the negative associations between blood levels and poor health markers mean much, since we synthesize a lot of it. But I really don't know. Thanks, Zeta (not ready to press "Buy" on next, currently macadamia nut-less, nut order) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
