A fat, liquid at ordinary temperatures, but solidifying at temperatures belowC., found abundantly in both the animal and vegetable kingdoms (see Palmitin).  It dissolves solid fats, especially at 30-40° C.  Chemically, olein is a glyceride of oleic acid; and, as three molecules of the acid are united to one molecule of glycerol to form the fat, it is technically known as triolein.  It is also called elain.
