Recipe Notes

Featured ingredient: MCT oil powder

MCT oil is derived from ‘medium-chain triglycerides’, which are found in some oils and dairy products. This supplement is extremely popular in the weight loss world and you might see it pop up in several keto-friendly recipes.

You will find MCTs in coconut oil, which, when consumed, go straight from the gut to the liver. It’s here that they are turned into ketones. Because the calories in MCTs are used straight away, they are less likely to be stored as fat, which in turn can help you lose weight.

As well as aiding weight loss, MCT oil has many other benefits. It’s been reported that it can help with brain and memory function, delaying the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. It can also help boost your energy, particularly when working out, and even help lower cholesterol.

Finally, studies have reported that MCT oil could help improve blood sugar levels, which can help in aiding diabetes management.

MCT oil powder contains the same health benefits as it’s oil counterpart but comes in a powder form. This is done through a process called ‘spray drying’.

Most people prefer to use the powder as it’s easier to combine with other ingredients when baking and cooking. It’s also better for the digestive system and has a creamier texture.
