I'm confused on what a triglyceride is, from what my text book it says its a type of gylercide, then from a website it said
Glycerides can be subdivided into two categories. The first group, the neutral glycerides are nonionic and nonpolar. The second group, the phosphoglycerides contain a polar region, the phosphoryl group.
Which makes triglyceride not a directly under a glyceride but under one of these groups. Then it says
Esterification may occur at one, two or all three positions producing monoglycerides (monoacylglycerols), diglycerides (diacylglycerols), or triglycerides (triacylglycerols). The most prevalent and most important are the triglycerides.
So does that mean that triglyceride can be produced by either of the two groups phosphoglycerides and neutral glycerides. And if that's correct then how are monoglycerides and diglycerides produced.
