Overview

What is a Triglyceride?

A Triglyceride is a type of dietary fatty acid which consists of three fatty acid molecules attached to a glycerol backbone. The fatty acid molecules are formed of carbon atoms in ‘chains’ of varying lengths, this length of the chain is what determines the type of Triglyceride. Tyiglycerides with chains consisting of less than 6 carbon atoms are known as Short Chain Triglycerides (SCTs), MCTs consist of 6 - 12 carbon atoms and Triglycerides with more than 12 carbon atoms in the fatty acid molecules are known as Long Chain Triglycerides (LCTs) The length of the fatty acid has important implications for how it is broken down and metabolised by the body.

What are Medium Chain Triglycerides and what are their benefits?

MCTs are naturally found in coconut oil, palm kernel oil and butter. Rather than being broken down like other fats, MCTs are absorbed intact and can be used by the cells as an energy source. Consuming MCTs as part of a balanced diet has been shown to enhance individuals’ rates of fat oxidation more effectively than other forms of fatty acids, such as LCTs (St-Onge 2003). With MCTs being a ready source of easily metabolised energy, many athletes have started to use them. It has been proposed that using MCTs before endurance exercise may help to spare glycogen stores, however this has not yet been proved and research in this area continues.

MCTs have eight calories per gram which is more than carbohydrates (four), however not as many as standard fats (nine). For this reason they are great for those of us looking to bulk and add high quality calories to the diet. MCTs have even been shown to be effective in weight loss studies when used to replace some of the LCTs in the diet (Mumme 2015, Han 2007).

What's special about your Medium Chain Triglycerides?

Our Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) powder is manufactured from coconut and palm kernel oils. It contains 70% caprylic acid (c8) and 30% capric acid (c10). It can be added to water and consumed on its own, or you can add it to your protein shakes, smoothies or Protein Hot Chocolate.

As with all GoNutrition™ products quality is paramount and each ingredient supplier must pass our stringent checks before being approved. We have used our years of experience in the sports nutrition industry to source the highest quality ingredients available on the market today. Our Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) powder is packed and sealed for freshness in our industry leading production facility, before being shipped direct to your door.
