Medium-chain triglyceride oil, often referred to as MCT oil, is made from organic coconut oil. Coconuts are a great source of MCT because they contain the four primary types of fatty acids: caproic, caprylic, capric and lauric. MCT oil is produced through a process called fractionation. Fractionation extracts caprylic and capric acid from the other fats present in coconut. After isolating these healthy fatty acids, the oil is then deodourised, filtered and stored to be ready for consumption!
Medium-chain triglycerides are quickly metabolised, meaning they are less likely to be stored as fat. MCTs make their way straight to the liver, where they are consumed immediately as energy. In addition to being a quick energy source, MCT oil may aid in weight loss as well. Studies have shown that MCT contains fewer calories than in products with LCTs (long-chain triglycerides) and creates a sense of fullness after consumption.
Maya Gold Trading’s Organic MCT Oil is made purely from organic coconuts. More than 60 percent of the fatty acids in coconut are MCTs, making coconuts an excellent source for MCT oil. MCT oil is colourless, odourless, and stays liquid at room temperature.
This is the perfect fat to add to food in the form of smoothies, juices, tea, vinaigrettes or even taken on its own.
