Malvalic acid is a cyclopropenic fatty acid found in cottonseed oil. The cyclopropene ring is thought to be one of the causes of abnormalities that develop in animals that ingest cottonseed oil. This reactivity could be cause for concern depending on concentration. Reports that hydrogenation of the oil destroys malvalic acid are common.
