MCT Oil vs. Coconut Oil: The Truth Exposed

MCTs stands for medium chain triglycerides. These medium chain fatty acids are known to have tremendous health benefits.The most predominant MCT found in coconut oil, however, is lauric acid. Coconut oil is about 50% lauric acid, making it nature’s richest source of lauric acid.

Lauric acid is the most well-known of the four.  Lauric acid is prized around the world as a powerful antimicrobial agent, used in both food preservation as well as in drugs and nutraceuticals. 

MCT Oil is Not Natural because it is Manufactured – Coconut Oil is Natural

Coconut oil in nature contains all four MCTs. In addition, it contains a small percentage of longer chain fatty acids.

MCT oil, on the other hand, is not an oil found in nature, but is manufactured by machine to separate out the medium chain fatty acids from the rest of the oil. The fatty acids are extracted through an industrial process of “fractionation”.Where the logic fails in comparing MCT oil to coconut oil, is in the assumption that all four MCTs are present in MCT oil, and only the longer chain fatty acids from coconut oil are removed.   This assumption is false.Therefore, to assume that MCT oil is a fractionation of coconut oil, where the longer chain fatty acids have been removed, leaving all of the MCTs from coconut oil, is false.

Lauric acid is the star component in coconut oil, but missing in MCT oil. If MCT oil was the fractionation of all of the MCTs in coconut oil, it would be about 80% lauric acid.

But it is not. It is zero percent lauric acid. Lauric acid is the most valuable component of coconut oilIs MCT Oil better than Coconut Oil?   NO, of course NOT.MCT oil is not true coconut oil
