Choosing the right MCT for your Ketogenic product

The key purpose of using an MCT powder is due to the ketone driving potential and the gut impact it has on your body. However, if you do not choose the right product, you may come across trade-offs such as allergen status (gluten, dairy) and high carbohydrate levels.

  • Did you know the grams of active ketone – producing MCTs are only the C8 and C10 caprylic acids? MCT also have other caprylic acids like C12, which really doesn’t serve any purpose for ketosis. This means that higher the percentage of MCT oil present in the product, higher the caprylic acids.
  • Quality of the powder carrier – Different powders has different benefits. Some might be high glycaemic or gut irritants and others might be able to promote gut flora. It’s important to be very mindful of choosing the right carrier for MCT.
  • Non-allergen status such as GMO-free, gluten, dairy free, may also be important for your customers.

MCT Powder

Coconut MCT Powder

Coconut oil is one of nature’s best sources of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT’s). They play a key role in the body’s metabolism of fats and energy production. MCT’s are more rapidly absorbed by the body and more quickly metabolised as fuel. Acting as a key component, MCT’s are commonly used in products that cater to the KETOGENIC DIET.
