      margaric acid
      Margaric acid (LMFA01010017) or heptadecanoic acid is a straight-chain saturated fatty acid. It occurs as a trace component of the fat and milkfat of ruminants, but it does not occur in any natural animal or vegetable fat at high concentrations. It has been reported as a constituent of various fungi and lichens.
