Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are medium-long saturated fats that occur in coconut oil, among other things. The body uses these fats as an energy source . Well-known examples are C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capric acid).
MCTs are interesting if you follow a ketogenic diet . This diet is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Due to the lack of carbohydrates, the body switches to burning fat. This process, also known as ketosis, is supported by MCTs. Learn more about the ketogenic diet.
