MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) oil is most commonly derived from coconuts or palm kernels and is also found in whole milk and butter.
At 2die4 Live Foods we use 100% organic coconut MCT oil.
Triglyceride is just a fancy name for fat. Most of the dietary fats we consume are long-chain triglycerides. The main difference between long and medium-chain triglycerides is how they are digested and processed in the body.
MCTs are more easily digested and processed rapidly in the liver where they are transformed into an instant source of energy, and therefore much less likely to be turned into fat stores in the body.
We source our MCT oil from Certified Organic Australian-owned coconut growers and processors in Sri Lanka who adhere to the highest standards from their farm to your pantry.
Add to smoothies, use as a salad dressing, add to coffee other beverages.
When blended into a hot beverage it creates a delightful creamy flavour and texture.
Start with small amounts (1 tsp/ day) and increase gradually over time.
