Calcium Soap

A descriptive term for the often numerous chalky, white-to-pale yellow, rounded lenticular precipitates caused by lipase-induced fat necrosis, which cover the peritoneum and pancreas. These millet seed-sized masses are classically associated with acute pancreatitis, and seen on gross examination of the peritoneal surface of the abdominal cavity

According to another mechanism, increased lipid uptake induces calcium soap which results in reduced calcium absorption.
Although the CSFA present characteristic features such as odor of soap (calcium soap of fatty acids), their inclusion in the diets did not restrict the dry matter intake, giving good acceptability to the product, without affecting the flavor for goats.
Reduced heat energy as a result of lower microbial fermentation and less energy loss by calcium soap may be the other reason for higher ME intake of lambs in Ca-soap group.
It has been widely reported that calcium soap can prolong the long-term thermal stability of PVC (20).

Most of the published articles revealed that CASR expression play a protective role in CRC patients through several mechanisms such as binding toxic secondary bile acids and/or ionized fatty acids and neutralizing them in form of insoluble calcium soaps,10 or by affecting several signaling transductions such as stimulating cell differentiation, inducing apoptosis and inhibiting proliferation.11 To the best of our knowledge, no studies have been conducted to correlate the relation between genetic polymorphisms in CASR gene and risk of CRC in Saudi patients.
