Lipids are a group of naturally occurring compounds that include fats, waxes, monoglycerides, diglycerides, triglycerides, phospholipids, sterols, fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, E, and K), and others. The basic biological roles of lipids include energy storage, signaling, and acting for the  structural components of thecell membranes. Lipids have many applications in the cosmetic and food industries as well as in nanotechnology. This research studies the use of high oleic sunflower oil in the tortilla chips industry. If in the past, the most common oil used in the chips industry was palm oil, nowadays the high oleic sunflower oil is gaining importance in the chips industry because of its rich content in oleic acid , being more oxidative stable than conventional sunflower oil, more resistant at thermo oxidation and because is considered healthier than other type of oils.
