O&3 presents Coconut Oil, Fractionated (Food Grade) (a.k.a: MCT)
O&3 presents Coconut Oil, Fractionated (Food Grade) (a.k.a: MCT). The topic of Fractionated Coconut/ MCT can be extremely confusing for many due to mixed messages in the market so we are going to tell it like it is & squash any confusion. We offer a number of grades of Fractionated Coconut/ MCT, you need to be clear with us as to what exact grade you require. Many offer this product derived from Palm but claim it is derived from Coconut as the Triglyceride make-up of Palm & Coconut when fractionated is near enough identical. We can offer the Palm & Coconut variety, so please be clear when enquiring, there are significant price differences between the two. In the case of Coconut Oil, Fractionated (Food Grade) (a.k.a: MCT), it is genuine Coconut derived material. MCT = medium chain triglycerides, this is part of the make-up of Coconut oil & is separated from the Coconut oil through a fractionation process. This delivers you a liquid form oil (as opposed to Refined Coconut oil which is a butter form at room temperature). Personal care & food manufacturers enjoy using this product due to its liquid form, because it makes it easier to handle & there is no need for melting unlike when you use Refined Coconut Oil. Just like Refined Coconut Oil, Fractionated (Food Grade) (a.k.a: MCT) Coconut is a super emollient & fantastic carrier/base oil to carry your formulation, due to the fractionation process, it is a very stable oil so can take rigorous processing in formulations.
