Ingredient Profile: Organic MCT Oil
We chose Nutiva Organic MCT Oil because there are no fillers or unwanted additives.
Made without chemicals, filler oils or additives, Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is a premium source of energy-boosting MCTs, or medium-chain triglycerides. Organic MCT Oil is derived from only 100% organic coconuts and features a neutral flavor, with no harsh aftertaste.
Fractionated Coconut Oil, also commonly referred to as medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT for short), has steadily been gaining momentum and popularity over the years due to its wide range of applications. You may have noticed MCT or Fractionated Coconut Oil on various food and beverage labels such as coffee brands, energy bars, or nutritional beverages. In the personal-care and cosmetic industry, it can be found in a variety of topical skincare or beauty product formulations due to its moisturizing and hydrating benefits. It is also sought after in a number of formulations with essential oils as it’s a popular choice as a neutral carrier.
While many brands use harsh chemicals and non-organic coconuts to create MCT oil, Nutiva crafted a patented USDA Certified Organic process to produce the world's first certified organic MCT Oil. We only offer the highest quality organic ingredients to our customers, and this is no exception.
Nutiva is also committed to supporting coconut suppliers in following sustainable farming practices. Upon harvest, the creamy white meat of the coconut is scooped from the shell by hand, then cold-pressed to create the Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.
