Medium chain triglycerides, commonly known as MCTs, consist of a glycerol molecule attached to 3 fatty acid chains ranging between 6-12 carbons in length. The unique property of MCTs is the way in which it is metabolized by the body. When MCTs are digested they are absorbed directly from the gut and into the bloodstream for the body to use. This makes MCTs more readily available for use when compared to long chain triglycerides. MCT oil powder is made from traditional MCT oil through the process of spray drying. This results in a powdered national supplement with all the wonderful benefits of MCT oil. It is versatile and can be used to increase the nutritional density of drinks, smoothies or other recipes. MCTs have gain its popularity among the sporting community and those living active lifestyles. As of recent times, those following a ketogenic diet has started incorporate MCTs into their diet. This has to do with the process that takes place in the liver, the conversion of MCTs to ketones. Ketones are a by-product of ketosis – this happens when the fat is broken down to produce energy when carbohydrates are not available. This boosts the body’s ability to burn fat, hence its popularity in ketogenic to promote weight loss.
