Oils and fats are made mainly of triglycerides (TGAs). Chemically, TGAs are molecules based on glycerol backbone and three fatty acids esterified in the three-hydroxyl groups of glycerol. The chemical, physical, and nutritional properties of the oils are determined by the fatty acid composition and the distribution of them in different triglycerides.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are triglycerides whose fatty acids have an aliphatic tail of 6–12 carbon atoms.
MCTs are composed of a glycerol backbone and three fatty acids: Caproic acid (C6:0), Caprylic acid (C8:0), and Capric acid (C10:0). These fatty acids are referred to as medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs).
MCTs have various applications in the nutraceutical and food industries for the development of nutritional supplements and superfood.
The Green Labs LLC. is now manufacturing the best MCTc Oil Powder 50% – Drink Grade obtained from coconut oil and excellent quality and stability for the food and beverage industries.
