Liquid polyunsaturated fatty acids abundant in plant oils like flaxseed and linseed.
Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid with 18 carbon atoms and two double bonds. Linoleic acid is considered an "omega-6" or "n-6" fatty acid because the first of its double bonds occurs at the sixth carbon from the omega end. It is also referred to as C18:2n6 (meaning 18 carbons, 2 double bonds, first double bond at n-6 position).
Found in vegetable and nut oils such as sunflower, safflower, corn, soy and peanut oil.
