Why Lipids are not strictly macromolecules ??

Lipids are not considered true macromolecules because they are not covalently bonded which is the case with other macromolecules. Lipids are aggregates rather bonds which are hydrophobic.

since molecular mass of lipids are 800 Da that is very less as compaired to the other macromolecules....

they are not truly macro molecules. but they are called so because of there hydrophobic nature, which do not allow water to to pass throusg and it remains in the acid insoluble fraction.

hope this helps!!!!!!
