MCTs – medium-chain triglycerides with a chain length of C6-C10 – have, among other things through studies by Nagac and Yanagita (2010), attracted the attention of the public for the treatment of overweight. MCT oils differ from customary dietary fats. Above all, they are easily absorbed by the intestines and are transported directly to the liver, where they are quickly broken down. This means that absorption takes place independent of bile acids and lipolytic enzymes ( Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung e.V. (German Nutrition Society)).
Their positive dietary effect is one reason why MCT oils are often used in food and nutritional supplements. Whether as carriers for flavours or vitamins, as glazing and coating agents or as components of special dietary and ketogenic nutrition – our MCT oils are ideal for the respective requirements.
