Lipid emulsions are a key component of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and are administered to patients who are unable to ingest their daily required calories orally. Lipid emulsions rich with n-6 (ω-6) PUFAs are known to cause parenteral nutrition-associated liver disease and have inflammatory side effects, whereas n-3 PUFA-rich emulsions have favourable clinical outcomes.
