Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats found in foods like coconut oil. They’re metabolized differently than the long-chain triglycerides (LCT) found in most other foods.
MCT oil is a supplement that contains a lot of these fats and is claimed to have many health benefits.
MCT's are a great way to add fat to your food. Some people put in their coffee. You will NOT want to cook with it because it has a low smoke point. You could add it to your dressing, any drink you make or just take it like a shot because it has NO taste unless you purchase a flavored one. It bypasses the liver and works right where you need it. Start SLOW when adding MCT oil to your diet as for some people it can cause GI upset.
