Question: Where is linoleic acid found in food?

Linoleic acid is the predominant n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) in the Western diet and we can obtain it from vegetable oils such as sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, and canola oils as well as nuts and seeds.

How do I reduce linoleic acid in my diet?

Avoiding processed foods is another great way to avoid excess linoleic acid. Cook your meals from scratch using whole, healthy ingredients. Also add more omega 3s to your diet: snack on nuts and seeds, especially pumpkin seeds, and to eat more oily fish such as salmon.

Is Omega 9 essential?

Omega-9 fatty acids arent strictly “essential,” as the body can produce them. However, consuming foods rich in omega-9 fatty acids instead of other types of fat may have health benefits.
