Palmitic acid is a saturated fatty acid.
Palmitic and stearic acids are significant markers for high consumption of saturated fats.
The liver can convert fatty acids into cholesterol. Although any fatty acid can enter this pathway, palmitic acid is the most stimulatory one known. Palmitic acid is high in palm kernel and coconut oils.
