Production & Sourcing
Coconut MCT oil is derived from coconut oil through a process called fractionation. This process separates the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) from the rest of the fatty acids found in coconut oil.
The coconut oil undergoes a refining process, typically through fractionation or distillation, where the long-chain fatty acids are removed, leaving behind the medium-chain fatty acids.
This results in a clear, colorless liquid with a high concentration of medium-chain triglycerides, primarily caprylic acid (C8) and capric acid (C10), known for their rapid conversion into energy in the body

Coconut MCT oil typically has a neutral flavor, almost tasteless and odorless, distinguishing it from regular coconut oil.
It’s a clear, liquid oil with a smooth and light consistency, remaining liquid at room temperature.
The oil is typically colorless and transparent.
MCT (Medium-Chain Triglyceride) oil extracted from coconuts contains medium-chain fatty acids, primarily caprylic acid (C8) and capric acid (C10). It’s considered an energy source and is believed to support cognitive function and weight management.
MCT oil doesn’t contain water and is not involved in moisture retention or binding in recipes. It’s primarily used for its nutritional benefits and as a dietary supplement.
Due to its refined nature, coconut MCT oil doesn’t carry the distinct aroma of coconut.
It’s often used as a supplement or ingredient to add healthy fats and promote ketosis or energy production in low-carb diets. In recipes, it might not contribute significantly to taste but can enhance the texture and nutritional profile.
MCT oil’s popularity in the health and wellness industry spans globally, catering to various dietary approaches and lifestyles.
It’s commonly used in ketogenic diets due to its potential to be rapidly converted into energy. Some people might experience digestive issues when introducing MCT oil into their diet, so gradual consumption is recommended.
