This page describes the principal classes of lipid that are important in human nutrition. It covers the digestion and absorbtion of lipids in the gut, lipid transport in the blood and lymph, lipid oxidation pathways in the tissues and ketone body metabolism. There are separate pages dealing with lipid biosynthesis and steroid metabolism. Click here to skip over the detailed contents section.
