Structured lipids (SLs) having long-chain fatty acids at sn-2 and medium-chain caprylic acid (CA, 8:0) at their sn-1,3-positions from corn oil (CO) were obtained and optimized by response surface methodology (RSM) with a three-level, three-factor face-centered cube design. Compositions of triacylglycerol species (TAGs) in SLs were also investigated by reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography.
