MCT Powder: What is it, How to Use it, and How to Choose it

MCT Oil Powder has all the benefits of
MCT Oil. It fits perfectly into your keto lifestyle and it’s a great way to
keep you supplied with ketone energy. Here we explain the benefits, the
production, the uses and the varieties of MCT powder. And of course you’ll want
to know when the powder’s more convenient than the oil.

You’ll find out:

  • Why MCT Oil (Powder) is so important in keto
  • How MCT Powder is produced
  • When to choose the powder instead of the oil
  • How do I choose a good MCT Powder
  • How to use MCT Oil Powder

Why MCT Oil Powder is Important in
the Keto Diet

MCT Oil, in fluid or powder form, is
an important part of the keto lifestyle and diet. On keto, you rely on fat
instead of carbs as your primary source of energy. Your liver metabolizes the
fat into ketones, which your body will use when there are no carbs to
burn.

MCT’s, short for Medium Chain
Triglycerides, are the type of fat that’s easiest for your body to absorb. They
go straight to the liver, which makes them the best fat to use if you need a
fast energy boost.

If you’re a beginning ketonian, MCT
will help you get into ketosis and stay there. Another benefit of MCT Oil is
that it keeps you full and satisfied for a long time, which helps you to stick
to your diet and aids weight loss.


Takeaway:
MCT’s are available as oil or powder. They are very beneficial to the keto
lifestyle since they’re metabolized into energy faster than any other sort of
fat. They also help to keep you satisfied for a long time.

The production of MCT Oil
Powder

MCT Oil, which is also the basis for
the powder, can be produced from either palm kernel oil or coconut
oil.

To make powder of the oil, it is mixed
with another ingredient, the carrier, usually a fiber. The mix is then dried
with hot air through a process called ‘spray drying’. Of course, the carrier
needs to be net carb free so as not to spike your blood sugar and take you out
of ketosis.

When to choose the powder instead of
the oil?

  1. MCT powder is much easier to mix with fluids than the oil. The
    result is creamy rather than oily in texture. This makes the powder your best
    choice if you want to use MCT for making bulletproof coffee, smoothies, or
    other drinks.
  2. If you’re new to MCT, it may cause some digestive discomfort,
    especially in large amounts. Most beginning ketonians find the powdered form a
    little easier to tolerate than the oil.
  3. The powder is easy to bring with you. You can easily take
    small portions of MCT powder to work, on a visit, or as you travel. A bottle of
    oil is heavy and you can’t bring it in your hand luggage if you fly. The oil is
    also much more prone to make a mess when spilled.
  4. The powder can be used in baking, whereas the oil is only
    appropriate for cold, uncooked food.
  5. The powder contains fiber, which aids digestion.

Takeaway:
MCT Powder is the most practical option when you’re on the go. It mixes well
with fluid, is generally well tolerated and can be used for cooking and
baking.

How to use MCT Oil Powder

  • In your coffee, to make it “bulletproof”
  • In shakes and smoothies
  • For baking keto cookies, cake, and muffins
  • For cooking; it can be heated up to 180 °C
  • In stews or soups, for thickening
  • Before you work out
  • After you work out - mixed with protein

How do you choose a good MCT
powder?

If you decide to use MCT powder to aid
your keto lifestyle, you’ll want to know how to choose the best quality for
optimal benefit.

You know you have a good MCT Powder
if:

  • It contains only C8/C10 MCT oil
  • The MCT’s are from 100% coconut oil, sustainably
    sourced
  • The carrier’s natural and sugar-free, such as acacia
    fiber
  • It contains only natural extra ingredients (e.g. protein or
    flavoring)
  • It contains no impurities or added thickeners, preservatives
    etc.

Takeaway:
Good MCT powder should be free from impurities and contain premium quality
C8/C10 MCT’s and pure sugar-free fiber as a carrier.

What variety of MCT Powder are there
to choose from?

MCT Powder is available in a number of
varieties. Which one to choose depends on what you want to use it
for.

The most common variety is the simple
unflavored form, which is very versatile. You could use it for all the purposes
outlined in this article.

Then there’s MCT Powder mixed with
protein. This is a great combination after a workout. The MCT’s will replenish
your energy and the protein will boost your muscle growth.

Conclusion

MCT’s have many uses and benefits for
people following the keto lifestyle. It’s the best sort of fat to give you a
quick energy boost and it will help you stay in ketosis. It also keeps you
feeling full between meals, which can be a great help if weight loss is your
goal.

Whether you choose MCT oil Powder or
the fluid oil depends largely on your situation and the way you want to use
MCT’s.

If you are often on the go, the powder
is much more easy to bring along. It is also best suited for making bulletproof
coffee and other drinks, as well as for cooking and baking. It may also be a
good option if you find that the oil gives you too much discomfort. Finally, a
mix of MCT and protein makes for a great keto shake after your
workout.
