Frequently Asked Questions

What is MCT?

MCT means Medium-Chain Triglycerides, which are types of fatty acids found in foods like coconut oil that have many health benefits. Unlike longer-chain fatty acids, MCT are rapidly broken down and absorbed into the body. That makes them a fast energy source and less likely to be stored as fat.

Where can you get MCT?

MCT can be found in whole food like coconut oil, palm kernel oil and dairy products although their MCT composition varies. Coconut oil for example has approximately 55% MCT oil, palm kernel oil has around 54% MCT oil while butter has something like 8% of MCT oil.

What are the different kinds of MCT in Coconut Oil?

The different fatty acids (C6, C8, C10 & C12) found in a coconut oil are the Caproic Acid (C6), Caprylic Acid (C8), Capric Acid (C10) and Lauric Acid (C12). Caprylic Acid (C8) is considered to be the most efficient source of MCT Oil after C6 because it is easier for the body to digest and break down into a quick and steady fuel or energy for brain and body. It does not spend much time processing in the liver hence, C8 molecules are quick to show its powerful effects on the body.

In one study, Pure C8 (Caprylic Acid) MCT Oil was found to have the highest net ketogenic effect on the body as compared to other MCT Oils: about 3X more ketogenic than C10 (Capric Acid) and about 6X more ketogenic than C12 (Lauric Acid).
