The advanced student of food science, grounded in the basic disciplines of organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry, can visualize the properties and reactions between food constituents on a molecular basis.
It is not surprising that some of these compounds can be toxic. For example, some species of mushrooms have poisonous properties due to specific nitrogen-containing bases or alkaloids that, depending on concentration, can produce marked physiological effects. Many other natural foods also contain substances that can be harmful if consumed in sufficient quantities, but are not a threat at the low concentrations present in our usual diets. Similarly, soil and water normally contain the potentially harmful metals lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, zinc, and selenium, and so traces of these metals occur in foods and always have.
Another 18-carbon unsaturated fatty acid with four fewer hydrogen atoms and two points of unsaturation is linoleic acid. This unsaturated fatty acid is a dietary essential for health. The degree ofunsaturation also affects the physical properties, such as melting temperature, of fats. Fat molecules can differ with respect to the lengths of their fatty acids, the degree of unsaturation of their fatty acids, the position of specific fatty acids with respect to the three carbon atoms of glycerol, orientation in the chains of unsaturated fatty acids to produce spatial variations within these chains, and in still other ways.
