A clean label, zero-net carb source of premium C8 MCT

Last updated on

A coconut-based premium C8 MCT, micro-encapsulated into a clean label for a zero-net carb instant energy source.

Medium chain triglycerides – commonly known as MCTs – are a unique type of fatty acids found mainly in coconut oil. Chemically, MCTs have only 6 to 10 carbon atoms. Triglycerides are three fatty acid groups bound to a glycerol backbone; they are the main constituents of body fat in humans and animals, and are natural fats found in food.

MCTs are best digested in the intestine, directly from the gut to the liver. They are used as an immediate energy source or are quickly converted into ketones, chemicals produced by the liver when breaking down fats. Ketones are a fast and healthy energy source for the brain and muscles, levelling up energy without being stored as fat tissue in our body. By understanding MCTs distinctive features, it becomes clear why they are ideal in ketogenic diets, weight management, sports nutrition, functional food and nutritional products.

C8 MCT (also called caprylic acid) can be found in coconut, palm oil, butter, and the milk of mammals. It is usually considered a more premium source of MCT because it has a shorter fatty acid chain compared to C10 (capric acid) which makes it the easiest and fastest for our body to break down and transfer into instant and stable energy. In fact, ingested C8 turns almost instantly into ketones, a powerful and more efficient alternative to glucose.

It is therefore no surprise that C8 leads to better physical performance, more mental clarity, and more stable energy in just a few minutes. Also, C8 is a powerful antibacterial that fights infections and can help to fight gut inflammation. These benefits are the reason why many keto brands prefer to use C8 MCT in their products.

C8 oil vs. C8 oil powder

Since C8 MCT is a better source of MCT, many brands have launched C8 Oil and C8 Oil Powder.

However, compared to liquid form, MCT in powder form can be used in much more applications such as:

  • keto diets
  • sports nutrition
  • keto creamers
  • bars
  • bakery
  • functional foods and more

Why choose MCB’s MCT-CP8 Oil Powder?

The Taiwanese MCB is an oil powder expert with patented micro-encapsulation and spray drying technology that can offer a comprehensive line of MCT Oil Powders that have:

  • Patented micro-encapsulation
  • Long shelf life (two years)
  • High stability
  • Better absorption

MCB offers MCT-CP8 Oil Powder, which is made from coconut sourced premium C8 MCT, micro-encapsulated with acacia gum to develop a vegan friendly, clean label and zero net carb C8 MCT Oil Powder.

Of one the most unique traits of MCB’s MCT-CP8 Oil Powder is its micro-encapsulation technology: normal MCT Oil Powders could be destroyed easily in the stomach due to gastric acid.

MCTs are best digested and absorbed in our intestine, especially the C8 MCT which can transfer to fuel, easily and quickly. If a large amount of oil is released in the stomach, it can easily lead to indigestion and a lower absorption rate of MCTs in the intestine. Therefore, the successful delivery of C8 MCT Oil Powder to the intestine is extremely important.

With MCB’s patented micro-encapsulation technology, it can protect the active ingredients from oxidation caused by the external environment to ensure product quality and longer shelf life. Also, micro-encapsulated MCT Oil Powder can endure through the stomach and successfully deliver MCTs to the intestine. The micro-encapsulated MCT-CP8 Oil Powder is well protected which can against the gastric acid and minimize the release of C8 in the stomach and at the same time, minimize the ‘keto flu’.

The successful delivery of MCT-CP8 has a sustained release effect in the intestine to ensure it can be well-absorbed and transferred to ketones as a fast energy source with which the consumers can enjoy the keto lifestyle.

MCB’s MCT oil powders are distributed in North America by Faravelli Inc., the US branch of Faravelli, an Italian company and global distributor of ingredients and raw materials, founded in 1926.
