Unfortunately, lowering the levels of saturated fats in your body is not as simple as eating acids. Food processors saturate unsaturated fats by a process called hydrogenation, which may by its name seem like it has something to do with the acidity/alkalinity of the fats, but it doesn't. The hydrogenation process simply refers to the addition of hydrogen to the double bonds of unsaturated fats. We do this in order to make a liquid oil into a solid fat, as in making margarine or shortening. Fatty acids are only very weak acids and that acidity is not at all related to their level of saturation or unsaturation. So, neither eating acids nor stomach acids will affect the saturation of fats.
