TFAs are classified as conjugated and nonconjugated, corresponding usually to the structural elements -CH=CH-CH2-CH=CH- and -CH=CH-CH=CH-, respectively. Nonconjugated TFAs are represented by elaidic acid and linolelaidic acid. Their presence is linked heart diseases. The TFA vaccenic acid, which is of animal origin, poses less of a health risk.
