Clinical Nutrition

ABITEC lipids and lipid emulsifiers find their place in the clinic and may provide sustainable energy sources to patients. Energy Balance and mitigation of issues of malabsorption can be factors of importance for patients in diseased states . ABITEC's lipids provide macronutrients and are compatible with a wide range of formulations for oral or parenteral routes of administration.

Captex® Medium-Chain Triglycerides

Captex MCTs have notable use in the Pharmaceutical industry as excellent carriers and solubilizers in various drug delivery systems. The versatility of Captex MCTs  across different markets is a result of the unique functional and nutritional characteristics Captex MCTs  possess, such as:

  • Providing sustainable energy, promoting prolonged satiety, aiding in brain health and supporting a healthy metabolism [1-3]
  • Ability to solubilize active nutritional ingredients to enhance absorption while contributing almost no taste to the formulation
  • Kosher and Halal
  • Not manufactured from bioengineered ingredients (Non-GMO)
  • Powdered forms available in our Nutri Sperse® product line

These properties (and more) make Captex MCTs a very viable choice for a variety of clinical nutrition applications.
