MCT oil - Coconut | Caprylic acid c8 Triglyceride

Medium Chair Triglyceride or MCT oil is extracted mainly from Coconut oil or Palm oil. MCT oil contains medium-length carbon chains of C8:0 and C10:0 of fatty acids known as triglycerides. From Coconut oil there are four types of triglycerides are extracted, Capronic C:6.0, Caprylic C8.0, Capric C:10 and Lauric acid C12:0. Major component of MCT is of Caprylic and Capric triglycerides.  A light coloured, low viscosity oil consisting of the medium chain tri-ester of glycerin, caprylic and capric acids.
