What Are MCTs?


The right types of dietary fats are essential to a healthy body. Triglycerides are the most commonly consumed fats (“triglyceride” simply means three fat molecules joined together). Dietary fats are based on a backbone of carbon chains. Long fat chains have up to 21 carbons; while medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have only 6 to 10.
