Medium-chain Triglycerides – (MCTs) are medium-chain (6 to 12 carbons) fatty acid esters of glycerol most frequently used in nutraceutical foods and beverages, as well as cosmeceutical personal care products. MCTs are often used as high-quality carriers and emollients in the formulation of cosmetics to be certified according to the Natural and Organic Ecocert Standards and regularly used in flavorings and fragrances due to their bland taste and low natural odor.

In the human body, MCTs passively diffuse from the GI tract into the portal vein without the modification that long-chain fatty acids or very-long-chain fatty acids require. Since MCTs are bland compared to other fats and do not generate flavor or fragrance off-notes, they are used in personal care products and pharmaceuticals. MCTs are produced in the United States from vegetable oil fatty acids sourced naturally.

In food, beverage and nutraceutical applications, MCT ingredients rapidly absorb into the body and serve as potentially good energy sources for daily exercise enthusiasts, athletes and bodybuilders. MCTs are often incorporated into beverages, mixes, nutritional bars or energy foods.
