Acetic Acid Cholesterol
Acetic acid is a colorless liquid organic compound. Aside from water, it is the main chemical component found in vinegar. It is also produced as a precursor to other chemical compounds such as polyvinyl acetate and cellulose acetate. Acetic acid has a distinct sour taste with a strong, pungent odor and, although it is classified as a “weak acid”, it can be corrosive and harmful on the skin if exposed to in a large concentration. Acetic acid can also be found in the organic chemical makeup of cholesterol, which is a lipid (fatty) molecule biosynthesized by all animal cells as an essential structural component of animal cell membranes, needed to maintain the integrity and fluidity of the membrane structure.
