What are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT)?
VPA® MCT or Medium Chain Triglycerides are a form of fat that provides an easily digested, calories dense energy source.
MCT can be either in liquid or powder form. VPA® MCT is in a powder form. The product is made by processing palm and coconut oil kernels via a process called fractionation. Basically it involves extracting and isolating the medium-chain triglycerides from the kernel oils and creating a powder.
How do MCTs work?
Medium Chain Triglycerides are shorter than the long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), which means that they are broken down and absorbed into the body a lot faster. MCTs, unlike the LCTs, go straight into your liver, where they are available to be used as an instant energy source or turned into ketones. A ketone is a substance produced when the liver breaks down a large amount of fat.
Due to the nature of the MCTs, they are less likely to be stored as fat.
