We are thrilled to offer another new ingredient to our wholesale product lineup! You rang the alarm and we listened, now bringing you Fractionated Coconut Powder – Organic (C1003), popularly known as Coconut MCT Powder. For those who are unfamiliar, let us break down what this special ingredient is!
MCT stands for medium chain triglyceride, contrary to typical dietary fats that are long-chain triglycerides. Medium-chain triglyceride sources, whether in liquid or powder form, contain higher levels of Capric and Caprylic fatty acids and are broken down by the human body for energy differently than short or long fatty acids.
You may recognize the abbreviation of MCT as the ketogenic lifestyle and diet gain traction and MCT products take over more shelf space in grocery stores, vitamin shops, and dietary supplement stores.
One may be wondering, “how do you get powder from a coconut?” First, after the medium chain triglycerides are isolated and fractionated out of the coconut, the resulting oil is mixed with acacia fibers and homogenized. With the use of spray-drying, the end result is a fine, white powder.
You have likely come across MCT oil labeled under various retail brands to use as a coffee creamer, but there are additional benefits of using powder instead. This powdered fractionated coconut option is soluble in both cold and hot water, making it very easy to add to any of your favorite drinks or liquid meals like soup or curry. Like the oil with a neutral aroma along with the powder’s creamy texture, it is a great vegan or non-dairy alternative to coffee creamer! Plus, no need to carry bulky containers around or risk spilling liquids when travelling!
