What is MCT?

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are a naturally occurring source of healthy fat found in vegetable oils and coconut oil.

MCT vs. LCT:

MCT molecules are shorter in length than Long Chain Triglycerides (LCT), which are the most common form of fat in the American diet. Sources of LCT include animal products, plant oils, and seafood.

Compared to LCT, MCT’s beneficial short lengths allow the body to absorb them easily and rapidly into the bloodstream. The body can use MCT for more immediate energy instead of storing them as fat, like LCT.
