Medium Chain Triglycerides
MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) are fatty acids with a particular metabolism: they are processed by the liver without the need to be previously emulsified by bile or oxidised by carnitine in the mitochondria of the blood, as are other fats.
They go directly to the liver where they are rapidly transformed into ketones and then released into the bloodstream as caprylic and capric acids.
MCTs are very present in coconut oil (almost 60%) and palm nut oil (50%).
Non-hydrogenated coconut oil titrated in caprylic acid and capric acid.
