1 serving (1 tablespoon/15mL) once daily with food. To assess individual tolerance, start with 1/3 serving (1 teaspoon/5mL) with food. May consume up to 3 tablespoons per day. Add to protein shakes, coffee, tea, salad dressing, sauces, or drizzled over meals. Not recommended for use in frying due to low smoke point of pure C8 and C10 MCTs. Read the entire label before use and follow the directions provided.
Q: Where do you source the raw ingredients in MUTANT MCT Oil?
A: Our MCT Oil comes from Malaysia and some of the finest coconut-growing regions in the world. We select only purified MCT Oil from coconut—never from palm kernel. The practice of using palm kernel for MCTs is a contributor to deforestation.
Q: Are pesticides used during harvesting the MCTs in your formula?
A: No, there are no artificial pesticides used in our coconut harvesting.
Q: Is MUTANT MCT Oil organic?
A: Our MCT Oil isn't certified organic, but coconuts themselves are a free-growing plant and aren't genetically modified. As a result, many experts consider coconuts to be naturally organic.
Q: How is MUTANT MCT Oil processed?
A: MCT Oil is fractionated coconut oil, which is made by using steam and pressure to hydrolyze coconut oil into glycerol and free fatty acids. The fatty acids are then fractionated into the long- and medium-chain acids before medium-chain acids are recombined with the glycerol to create MCT Oil.
Q: What are the main medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in fractionated coconut oil?
A: The main MCFAs are C8, which is an eight-carbon-length fatty acid (caprylic acid or octanoic acid), and C10, which is a 10-carbon-length fatty acid (capric acid or decanoic acid).
Q: What is the exact breakdown of C8 and C10 in MCT Oil?
A: Each 14-gram serving (one 15 mL tbsp) of MCT Oil contains 9.8 grams (70%) of C8 fatty acids and 4.2 grams (30%) of C10 fatty acids.
Q: How many calories per serving?
A: Each 14 grams (one 15 mL tbsp) of MCT Oil contains 120 calories.
