Micelles consist of free fatty acids dispersed in water by having the polar carboxyl group oriented mainly in the water phase and the non-polar fatty tail lying mainly in the oil phase. Although free fatty acid micelles are uncommon in foods consisting mainly of triacylglycerols, in small amounts micellar free fatty acids can decrease the oxidative stability of foods by solubilizing metal contaminants.
