1. Any of a group of lipids that are esters (organic compounds of inorganic salts from an organic acid and an alcohol) formed from one molecule of glycerol and three molecules of one or more fatty acids, which are widespread in adipose tissue, and commonly circulate in the blood in the form of lipoproteins also called neutral fat.
2. The major form of fat stored by the body.

A triglyceride consists of three molecules of fatty acids combined with a molecule of the alcohol glycerol.
