A MULTIFUNCTIONAL SOURCE OF ENERGY
Making good things better: MCT oils are special edible oils that are obtained from the medium-chain saturated fatty acids caprylic acid and capric acid – and esterified with glycerine. This gives rise to oils that combine positive effects on both process technology and nutritional physiology. MCT oil is ideal as a carrier substance for flavours and essences and acts as a solubilising agent. It regulates viscosities and serves as a release agent. The nutritional physiology benefits of MCT oil make it (especially in powder form) a valuable basic nutrient for dietary foods and supplements, parenteral nutrition, special nutritional therapies and sports/fitness products.
Do you want to make your product even better? We will identify the perfect MCT product for your applications and production processes.
Palm kernel oil
The raw ingredients for the production of MCT oils – C8/C10 fatty acids and glycerine – are traditionally extracted from palm oil and/or palm kernel oil. We are committed to these natural products for both ecological and economic reasons. On account of our membership of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and the stringent criteria used to select our raw ingredient suppliers, we consciously contribute to promoting sustainable oil palm cultivation.
Coconut oil is an alternative source of our raw ingredients – and our solution for customers who request a palm oil-free product. Coconut-based MCT oil offers the same functionality and quality as MCT oil extracted from palm kernel oil.
When considered in relation to surface area and in comparison to other oil-bearing fruits, the oil palm is not only the highest-yield fruit (at 3.3 t oil per hectare), but also way ahead in terms of sustainability.
With a reputation as all-rounders stretching back many years, our MCT oils are conquering new markets all the time and have long been used as more than just production aids. In addition to their straightforward processing, our MCT products also boast outstanding nutritional physiology properties and are ideal for innovative dietary and nutritional systems.
