Medium-chain triglycerides are fatty acids that can support healthy heart and brain functions, as well as provide other health benefits. All fats are made up of chains of carbon atoms. While short-chain fatty acids contain five or fewer carbon atoms and long-chain fatty acids contain 13 to 21 carbon atoms, medium-chain fatty acids settle on a comfortable middle ground of six to 12 carbon atoms. This happens to be the ideal length for optimal absorption and metabolism. MCTs bypass many of the digestive processes other types of fat normally go through. These healthy fats go straight to the liver and are processed there.
While MCT oil naturally provides a fast and clean source of healthy fats, it might not be for everyone, especially those with sensitive digestive systems. However, MCT oil can be turned into powder via a process called spray-drying. This powder is gentler to the stomach and can let even those with more sensitive systems experience the benefits of MCTs. MCT oil powder can also be conveniently used to add a rich texture to sauces, soups and beverages, and blends better with other ingredients than its regular oil form.
