ℹ  Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is the umbrella term used to indicate all linoleic acid isomers, referring to a polyunsaturated fatty acid from the omega-6 family. Polyunsaturated fats are all the triglycerides that contain a fatty acid with more than one double bond in the molecule.

CLA can be produced by the human body itself, although small amounts of it are found in foods such as full-fat milk and other dairy products. In even lower concentrations, it occurs in the meat of ruminant animals like cows.

The CLA used in supplements is usually synthesized, mostly from safflower oil, by a process called isomerization.
