Product Overview

Product Overview

What is MCT powder?

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) come from a specific class of fatty acids that are dealt with by your body much like carbohydrates.

Benefits of MCT Powder

Most fats are broken down in the intestine and reformed so that they can be transported in the blood. But MCTs are absorbed intact and taken to the liver, where they are used directly for energy.

Who is MCT Powder suitable for?

MCTs contain around 8 calories per gram, twice that of carbohydrates. We recommend 10g per day taken with water or other supplements.

Key Benefits

  • Designed for endurance athletes
  • Fatty acid absorbed in the liver

What's actually in it?

This is indeed very nice stuff. But check the nutrition information and ingredients - it says 100% MCT and nothing else, but 10g of the product only contains 7g of MCT. So what is the missing 30% by weight? I've been waiting for an answer to this question from My Protein, and I'm still waiting. I suspect there is more to it because how can a pure fat be transformed into a powder without the use of additives/emulsifiers etc? I suspect the information is not complete. Elswehere I have seen the ingredients of MCT powder stated as Medium Chain Triglycerides, Sodium Caseinate, Glucose Syrup. It certainly would be nice to know if that is what this actually is!

Lovely stuff

I just realised that I'm almost running out of this stuff, as I have been using it so much. Need to get a bigger pouch next time. I mix it in coffee and it makes it taste just like coffee with cream (except you don't feel bloated afterwards from the cream). You do have to use a fair amount though (then again my coffee mugs are quite big). At first I had problems with the mixing, but then realised that I need to mix it like any other powder in cooking: first add the powder in the cup, then pour the water (or coffee) in fairly slowly whilst constantly stirring. By the time I've poured the whole cup, there are only couple of small bits floating on top, which dissolve soon after. If you just dump it into a liquid, it'll take forever to dissolve. I'm not sure about the effectiveness, as I've been on a particular diet, so a lot has changed anyway. I've had a cup of coffee with MCT after a meal if I've felt it was lacking too much in fats. Still, I'll be buying this again for the taste!

MCT Powder

MCT Powder definitely gives an increase in energy and really does work well in coffee to make it creamier. It doesn't always mix that well with bits floating on top. I probably will buy again

Goes Well With:

coffee, protein shake

Great Stuff!

MCT Powder is fanstastic to mix with powdered milk and use on cereal and in coffee. I'm starting my morning with this and am feeling amazing.

Good buy!

Good MCT powder for a good price! The only down side is that the regular MCT oil has about 14 grams of MCT per 15ml while this powder has only 7 grams of MCT per 10ml. But all MCT powders like that.

Goes Well With:

Protein shake or coffee

Bullet Proof

The effect of this MCT Powder is more than noticeable. I noticed improved focus and most surprisingly and increase on cognitive ability. It's also great for getting the going on those days working about doesn't have it's appeal. I have heard MCT and intermittent fasting go hand in hand however I'm still bulking so I cant add comment to that yet. All in all a great product! Will be buying again!

Delightful

Bought this as part of a low-carb diet and weight-training programme I have been following and developing. I add the recommended dose to my coffee (three times a day) and not only find this aids energy levels, cognitive function and work-out stamina but tastes wonderful. Can be added to coffee before or after and it mixes fine - occasionally the last few bits float but its never been a problem. Some people have had problems with it is cold drinks (shakes etc.,) so perhaps sticking to hot drinks is the key. For non-low-carbers I hear it makes your porridge creamy, also. Love this product!

Goes Well With:

Coffee, Porridge, Hot Water.

Not happy at all.

Didn't mix properly at all and made my shakes taste horrific. Definitely not going to buy this again unfortunately.
