Table of contents
MCT (coconut) oil powder by RawSeries is a vegan food supplement in powder form, based on medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil from coconut oil and microencapsulated with gum arabic.
Medium-chain triglycerides are very interesting lipid structures because of their potential as an energy source with easier digestion as they don't require micelle formation due to their higher solubility (Bach and Babayan, 1982).
It isn't common to find MCTs in powder form on the market, as they are fat-like structures, and converting them into soluble powder requires a complex treatment process.
Most available MCT oils are derived from palm, a fruit with MCT but high palmitic acid content.
Our MCT oil comes from coconut, another source of fats high in these triglycerides, which include caprylic acid and caproic acid.
We have concentrated the medium-chain triglycerides naturally present in coconut oil.
Finally, it has to be considered that competing products that market MCT powder do so by transforming the oily structure into micronised form via a micronisation process:
- The use of caseinates, rendering the product no longer a pure source of fat, and also adding milk allergens.
- The use of glucose and fructose syrups, adding sugars to the product that can put a user using MCTs as a pre-workout in their keto diet out of ketosis.
We've gone one step further! And we have microencapsulated our high MCT coconut oil using gum arabic, a food fibre extracted from the natural resin of the acacia tree.
Our MCT oil powder contains no sugars from high glucose and fructose syrups and no dairy allergens.
MCTs have a neutral-milky taste.
