    Typical MCT Content

    MCT Oil contains a mixture of medium chain fatty acids. But the health benefits come mostly from the the C8 and C10 varieties, which is why we’ve made sure the fatty acid profile of our MCT oil contains >98% of these favourable fats!

    C10 - Capric Acid - 38%

    C12 - Lauric Acid - ~1.5%

    Can I cook with coconut MCT oil?

    Our pure coconut MCT oil has a smoke point of 170C, therefore we do not recommend cooking with Hunter & Gather MCT oil but using it in tea, coffee, shakes or as a salad dressing. 

    For a non-inflammatory oil for cooking with, we would recommend Extra-Virgin Cold-Pressed Avocado oil as it has a high smoke point of 250C. Which you can find here. 


    Will using MCT oil help me loose weight?

    We believe that following a real food diet free from sugars, grains and inflammatory oils is key for a healthier lifestyle. Combining this with movement, play, rest and good quality sleep is also important for optimal health and wellness. If you are looking to loose weight, we would recommend checking out our free Ebooks here. 

    In terms of MCT oil - there is a growing body of evidence supporting the use of MCT oil for supporting weight loss, especially as part of the Keto diet. 

    MCT oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids - which are rapidly utilised by the liver for energy. 

    By consuming MCTs, you are promoting fat oxidation, meaning that you metabolise your dietary fat quicker – using it for energy as opposed to storing it.

    Ongoing research is also looking into the effect MCTs have on your appetite-controlling hormones, suggesting they help you to feel fuller for longer and so aid in weight loss.

    This study also confirms the role of MCT's in weight loss, whilst not affecting metabolic risk factors for cardiovascular disease. 


    What is the difference between MCT oil and MCT powder?

    MCT oil is in our opinion the purest source of medium chain fats. Our Hunter & Gather MCT oil is triple steam distilled for purity and is 100% from coconuts, no palm oil or rapeseed oils are used in the process and there are no bulkers, fillers or flow agents. 

    Liquid MCT oil has an oily texture and can be poured into coffee, smoothies, salads or shakes. 

    To create a powdered form of MCT oil, MCT oil is spray dried onto a carrier - such as maltodextrin, tapioca flour, corn or soy lecithin.  It is important to understand what carrier is used as this could impact the carbohydrate levels of the product. 

    These carriers themselves are rarely disclosed on the ingredients list - so be sure to ask if you are unsure. 

    MCT powder, is a powder format that can be added to hot liquids and is easy to stir into drinks. 


    Will MCT oil make me have diarrhea? or stomach pains?

    When first starting to take MCT oil, we recommend starting with 5ml per day and increase up to 15 ml gradually. 

    Coconut oil is made up of various medium chain fats (C6, C8, C10 & C12). We only utilise C8 and C10 in our MCT oil. 

    C6 MCT (Caproic acid) is also present in coconut oil, however it has been noted that C6 can cause an unpleasant taste and stomach pains/discomfort. Choose an MCT oil that is either pure C8 or a C8 and C10 blend. 

    Many companies utilise MCT oil that has come as a byproduct from the beauty industry with harsh hexane chemicals to strip out the C12 (Lauric Acid). MCT oils that have been processed with chemicals can cause stomach upset. Be sure to choose an MCT oil that is steam distilled - if the company cannot tell you how the MCT oil is made, do not take it and find another that can.
