What Is MCT Oil and How Is It Produced?

Medium-Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil is a fatty acid that is easily absorbed by the body. It is an integral part of coconut oil and palm oil. MCT oil metabolizes very quickly due to its rapid breakdown qualities. As it is broken down, it turns into energy. It is least likely to be stored by the body as fat.

MCT oil is a man-made substance that is extracted from coconut oil through a process involving a press and alcohol wash for an organic formula. The focus of the extraction is to isolate the caproic acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid. These are desirable because they are absorbed without having to pass through the digestive system.

The liver absorbs these fatty acids and turns them into ketones, which are the result of the process that will turn fat into energy. MCT is especially good for those suffering from malabsorption syndrome.
