The right ingredients can help your customers live a healthy lifestyle
Are fats that are composed of fatty acids with chain lengths of 6-12 carbons (most notably C8 and C10 carbon length fatty acids) and are found in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, butter, and milk. The small size and high solubility of MCTs in biological fluids greatly influence their fate during metabolism . MCTs are more completely and quickly hydrolyzed compared with long chain triglycerides (LCTs) and, in the presence of LCTs, preferentially hydrolyzed by pancreatic lipase . Additionally, the hydrolyzed MCT fatty acids are absorbed into the enterocyte faster than fatty acids from LCTs and at the same rate as glucose . Medium chain fatty acids are not incorporated into chylomicrons. Instead, they pass directly into the portal vein and to the liver where they are readily metabolized into ketone bodies [1, 3] and used as energy. MCTs can be used to support a healthy lifestyle and aid in both weight loss and weight management . Learn more here
