1.MCT Powder Ultimate Guide
At present, MCT products on the market mainly have two dosage forms of oil and powder. The oil agent is mainly used in the form of emulsifier or edible oil, and the advantage is that the product has high purity. The disadvantage is that it is inconvenient to carry and take. Powder products have the advantages of good fluidity, rapid dispersion of hot and cold water, wider application fields, and more diversified application dosage forms. In recent years, they have become more and more popular among consumers. The products mainly include meal replacement powder, energy bars and functional drinks. Such as the emergence of diversified product forms. Generally speaking, when oil is turned into a powder, it is necessary to introduce carbohydrate as an embedding wall material. MCT powder commonly used in the market usually uses carbohydrates such as maltodextrin, syrup and starch as embedding wall materials, and starch in these products. The syrup substances are decomposed into glucose in the body, which affects the body’s ketogenic effect. Therefore, when we choose MCT powder products, we must polish our eyes to use dietary fiber as the embedding material. Dietary fiber is a substance that cannot be hydrolyzed by enzymes in the human small intestine to produce glucose. Therefore, it does not affect the ketone effect of the body. In the market, such products mainly use dietary fibers such as gum arabic and resistant dextrin as embedding wall materials. Similarly, replacing the traditional wall material maltodextrin with dietary fiber can help reduce the carbohydrate content of the ketogenic diet product and improve the ketogenic effect.
