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!

2/3 MCT plus Glucose+Milk

Effectiveness:

This isn't MCT powder as it's name suggests, it's 2/3 MCT powder with glucose and milk, and therefore not as helpful as pure MCT powder if you want to use it as part of a ketogenic diet. This should be clearer in the description and it probably should be called 'Mostly MCT powder', or 'Over half MCT powder, with milk and glucose'.

Myprotein, if you made the same stuff without the added glucose syrup you'd have the only MCT Powder that could be used by people following a keto diet in the UK. I have searched all over the net and the only place that does sugar free MCT it imports from America and it's quite expensive. All you need do is remove this filler, it won't change the taste. If you need to add a sweetener you sell Xylitol. I just don't get it, you could corner the market for those following low carb keto diets diets in the UK. 5 stars as a friend uses it and says it's a good product, just not suitable for ketogenic diets

Very annoyed, it says its zero sugar, but it has glucose surup. Which is sugar. Why would i take something to help keep me in ketosis that has suger in it. Thats totally the opposite to what i want.

Coconut Oil is superior to MCT Oil

Overall:

Mixability:

Taste:

Effectiveness:

1

MCT is a manufactured oil which contains the same capra fatty acids (C6-C12) as in Coconut Oil. Coconut Oil is the richest natural source of C12, lauric acid. Unless they actually state the quantities, there is no proof that MCT is better than Coconut Oil and C6, C8 & C10 can be found in other food sources such as goat's milk. If you really want to improve focus then go and buy a Nootropic. MCT is mostly a marketing money maker to fool people stupid enough to not research what they are taking. Just Google 'MCT Oil vs Coconut Oil' and read! I would save your money and just buy the Cocopure which you will be assured is natural and very likely to contain what you expect it to.

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!

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!

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.

I got this based on the recommendation in the 6 week Bikini body plan. I have never taken it before but it seems fine. I add it into my protein shakes just for the added healthy fats. I haven't been taking it long enough to decide how much of a difference it makes but seems good so far.

Goes Well With:

Protein shakes, ice, water or milk and whatever else you like to mix in with your protein shakes ; )

I bought this as MCT oil is quite expensive and this seemed like a cheaper alternative. I wanted to add it to my morning coffee for extra fat (I don't eat carbs all day until after my evening workout) and presumed being "unflavoured" it wouldn't make a difference to my favourite coffee. Unfortunately, it does. It tates like a coffee creamer, which is fine if that's what you want. I wanted to taste my nice espresso, but it now tastes a bit milky. I'd give this 5 stars if it was actually "unflavoured".

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

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.
