Structured lipids (SLs) are defined as lipids that are modified chemically or enzymatically in order to change their structure. This review deals with structured triacylglycerols (STGs) and structured phospholipids (SPLs). The most typical STGs are MLM-type STGs, having medium chain fatty acids (FAs) at the 1- and 3-positions and a long chain fatty acid at the 2- position. MLM-type STGs are synthesized by: 1) 1,3-position-specific lipase-catalyzed acyl exchange of TG with FA or with FA ethylester (FAEt); 2) 1,3-position-specific lipase-catalyzed acylation of glycerol with FA, giving symmetric 1,3-diacyl-sn-glycerol, followed by chemical acylation at the sn-2 position, and; 3) 1,3-position-specific lipase-catalyzed deacylation of TG, giving 2-monoacylglycerol, followed by reacylation at the 1- and 3-positions with FA or with (FAEt). Enzymatic preparation of SPLs requires: 1) acyl group modification, and 2) head group modification of phospholipids. Acyl group modification is performed using lipases or phospholipase A2-mediated transesterification or ester synthesis to introduce arbitrary fatty acid to phospholipids. Head group modification is carried out by phospholipase D-catalyzed transphosphatidylation. A wide range of compounds can be introduced into the polar head of phospholipids, making it possible to prepare various SPLs.
