Powdered MCT Oil

I just learned something new for those who are using MCT oil, or want to, that there is a powdered form of it available in bulk from a company called True Protein - https://www.trueprotein.com/Product_Details.aspx?cid=24&pid=86 . The product contains 63% caprylic acid (c:8), 25% capric acid (C:10) and < 2% C:6. This would be useful for those who don't like the idea of taking oil. It has a milk protein with it that allows it to be in powder form, and apparently can be mixed easily with water or other liquids. I am ordering some to try it out. This could also be ideal for traveling by plane or taking to restaurants.

This company also has many other foods and supplements that are available in powder form, and they will even let you create a custom mix of their powders, which could make life easier for those who have trouble swallowing pills and capsules.

  • My problem with it is that it has 7 g of carbs per serving. I'll stick with coconut oil in small jars when I travel.

  • Why would it have carbs? Must be some kind of 'Gluten' filler?

  • Each coconut oil capsule has only 1gram of coconut oil, whereas there are 14 grams in a tablespoon. Obviously, it would take 14 capsules to equal one tablespoon, which would be quite expensive and hard to swallow (literally!!)

  • To jet and health test dummy: Yeah, I am not thrilled about the carbs either. I am going to experiment with it some, such as plain yogurt to see how it mixes and tastes. The biggest probem with travel is that quantities larger than 3 ounces have to go in checked bags; many people try to stick with a carry on bag for shorter trips due to the charges now for checking bags. I am also worried about taking something liquid that may worry security even in checked bags for an overseas trip.

  • I just got a yogurt maker & made my first batch of coconut milk yogurt :)
    I used agar agar to help thicken - am still experimenting!! 1st batch was a bit thin, but quite tasty. & no 'extras! It would be easy to add a powder like that - or more OVC oil - during the culture phase! (& more oil would help it 'set')
    As you say, the best way to travel with it could be challanging.
    I'm so excited to hear about the confrence

  • I'm planning on starting my dad on organic virgin coconut oil but am concerned about a few things #1 he doesn't live with me (independent retirement facility) so I can't fix it for him. can 1-4 teaspoons be melted in a microwave a few seconds in order to mix with yogurt or does this cause it to be hydrogenated? Also, is it just as well to use coconut oil only or better to use MCT oil along with coconut oil? There seems to be more confusion this week so it has to be as easy as possible. He mixes Axona (began 4 mos ago) with yogurt now so the other question is can he continue with Axona (1 pack daily) or will this be problematic? So many questions!

  • I just read the following information online: "The lauric acid found in coconut oil will convert into monolaurin in the intestines." So now I'm wondering if the part of the benefits of the coconut oil might have to do with the elimination of yeast and bacteria. Any comments?

  • I ordered 3lbs. of the MCT powder and have used about 90% for my wife, one 70cc scoop per day (AM) mixed with two Tbsp of coconut oil. She also takes another 2 Tbsp coconut oil in PM. There was no recommended dosage for the MCT powder. I have not seen any improvement or slowing of short term memory loss. I may not re-order based on this experience

  • Do you have anything new to report, Dr. Newport? How is Steve doing these days? Has Dr. Veech started manufacturing ketone ester yet? Any new treatments on the horizon that give you reason to hope?

  • Dear Mary,
    Just a thought I have read all about herpes and Alzheimers on the net and wonder if you have tried to eradicate it with oregano oil and or citrus seed extract both taste like yuk but it only takes a few drops under the tongue and if Steve can persist it is said it clears up the virus. I haven't tried this one on my Dad as he gets aggro and refuses to take anything at all. I take it myself and haven't yet given in to all the stress that this care-giving hits you with in fact my son who recently visited after a year in San Fran said Mum you're looking good.
    Enough back patting. At present I think I am having success with MSM a derivative of DSMO look it up it may help Steve.The one thing I have noticed about the MSM is that it has stopped Dad from getting swollen ankles and his walking is very controlled. In fact he was dancing the waltz with one of the care givers at the day respite he attends.He is much easier to manage and I see a light in his eyes that wasn't there for a long time.
    Thank you both as I feel inspired and can take the knocks a bit better. I don't know if anyone else in Australia is trying coconut oil but I would disguise cow poo in ice cream if There was a chance it might help.
    I am also giving him oxyrich neat twice a day but that is for the lungs as he has a stoma and copd. It might be useless but I will try any thing.
    Love and prayers to you both.
    Donna

  • Have you any thoughts about the anticaking agents used in this? I've asked the company what they are, but if they are aluminum, that might be an issue?

  • What is MCT oil? I see the acronym, but never what it stands for.
