Medium chain triglyceride (MCT)
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) saturated fatty acids, Long Chain Triglycerides (CT) of the Common, but also has its own characteristics. Medium Chain Triglycerides only by the composition of saturated fatty acids, Low Freezing Point, Low Viscosity Liquid at room temperature.
Medium Chain Triglycerides, so-called English Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT), known as
Fatty Acids are classified into short chain and long-chain, medium chain according to their length of carbon chain. Fatty Acids containing 8 to 12 carbon Atoms are commonly called medium chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) (or medium chain triglycerides, Fatty Acid triglycerides MCT (medium chain or medium chain triglycerides, MCT). The typical refers to saturated triglycerides MCT caprylic acid or saturated triglyceride or caprylic acid Capric acid.
Medium Chain Triglycerides only by the composition of saturated fatty acids, Low Freezing Point temperature, Low Viscosity Liquid. Compared with soybean oil, is completely odorless, colorless transparent Liquid. Compared with ordinary Oil and Hydrogenated Oils, unsaturated fatty acid content of medium chain triglyceride is very low, the oxidation stability is very good, the iodine value is not greater than 0.5. The MCT is particularly stable at high and low temperatures.
In the industry of Food Additives, can be used for Medium Chain Triglycerides as flavouring Food Pigments and solvents and carriers; in the processing of Baked food, Medium Chain Triglycerides and often together with cheap Vegetable Oil, such as anti Adhesive, to avoid Cooking food in the pot or pan; triglycerides Pure Medium chain or mixed with vegetable oil is also commonly used as Lubricant, Mold Release Agent and sausage; Medium Chain Triglycerides can also be used to treat a variety of vitamins, Pigments and liposoluble antioxidants, the viscosity of the Fat bodies of high viscosity decreases greatly when to Aden? Small? Amounts of Medium Chain Triglycerides and Medium Chain Triglycerides used in the food processing industry to replace easily oxidized Creams, Milk Liquor and imitation Cheese; if used in combination with Colloids are Soluble in water, can also be used as opacifier Medium Chain Triglycerides. In addition, Medium Chain Triglycerides can replace the Lubricants and mineral oil for Food Processing Machinery.
The Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) can be used as food post-operative infectious and burned for Patients, but also for those who suffer from malabsorption of Fat, AIDS and patients with cancer, diabetes, can be used for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, reduce the gallstone, reduce cholesterol, Prevention and Treatment of hyperlipidemia. In addition, it can help you lose weight, practice has shown that the consumption of medium chain fatty acids MCT MCT in the human body weight, reducing the area of the reduction of Abdominal Fat, waist circumference, have an obvious effect.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) due to their High Energy, easy to absorb, in Poultry, cattle, has a wide range of applications. Food? Added Medium Chain Triglycerides, weight gain of piglets, the stability of the Milk of SOWS, improved laying hens. In addition, there are Medium Chain Triglycerides for improving the disease Resistance of Livestock and poultry and Other effects.
