Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are a strong choice where there is a need for an easily absorbed, rapidly available source of energy.
Compared to other fats, the fatty acids in medium-chain triglycerides are more rapidly metabolized – giving fast energy release before the body can store them as fat. They are also slightly lower in calories.
In the DuPont™ Danisco® ingredient solutions, we use palm kernel oil to produce medium-chain triglycerides with varying concentrations of C8 and C10 fatty acids.
Our MCT are neutral in taste, odor and color. The clear, low-viscosity liquid format is easy to incorporate in your formulation.
Use our MCT range in products where an easily absorbed energy source is key. Infant and follow-on formula, sports nutrition, clinical nutrition and products for weight management are some examples.
