Medium-chain triglycerides - MCT Oil powder are a class of saturated fat composed of fatty acids containing 6-10 carbons. They are found primarily in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and dairy fat, and they appear to benefit fat loss to a minor extent when consumed in place of other dietary fat.
Quite obviously, MCT Oil powderis a powdered form of MCT oil.In order to change liquid MCTs into a solid powder form, manufacturers mix the oil with a carrier substance (usually a starch), then spray dry the mixture into a powder form. Picture the oil molecules encapsulated by little starchy shells, then sprayed into a powder.
Dr. Mercola explains it:“Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil powder) have become increasingly popular as people are learning more about the health benefits ofnutritional ketosis, which is achieved by replacing net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) with high amounts of healthy fats and moderate amounts of high-quality protein.

MCT oil (MCT oil powder) is marketed as a supplement and is typically a combination of caprylic (50-80%) and capric acids (20-50%)sourced from coconut or palm kernel oil due to their relative abundance of these fatty acids compared to other foods. MCTs are produced by splitting and distilling the fatty acids from coconut or palm kernel oils, and then mixing the desired ratio of MCFAs with glycerin to form a triglyceride. This process can be achieved both through the use of chemical solvents and lipases.
It has been reported that medium chain triglycerides in general when replacing long-chain fatty acids in the diet, do not appear to confer additional performance enhancing benefitsor at least the benefits are highly controversialdespite theoretically being a more readily catabolized source of fatty acids for energy production during exercise.
For studies assessing glycogen, there does not appear to be a significant interaction for normal distance aerobic exerciseor ultra distanceswith or without additional carbohydrates.
