What is MCTBar?
An MCTBar is a unique meal replacement bar that utilizes MCT Oil for fuel instead of added sugar.
For starters MCTBar is a great tasting keto friendly protein bar with added medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s). Previously, the most common way to add MCT’s into your diet was through MCT oil typically in your morning coffee. But what if you’re not a coffee person? Or looking to get MCT’s fast and on the go, the answer is the MCT bar. Currently, MCTBar is the only bar on the market which has 4.7g of MCT oil in it.
What does MCT stand for?
Medium Chain Triglycerides.
What are MCT’s?
MCT’s or medium chain triglycerides are saturated fats with 6-12 carbon bonds. What makes MCT’s so special is that they are metabolized differently compared to long chain triglycerides. MCT’s are broken down by the liver giving you a quick energy boost. Also, MCT’s are easily transferred into ketones, which is why MCT supplementation has become so popular in the low carb ketogenic community. MCT’s have been shown to improve energy levels, cognition, satiety, and may even aid in weight loss.
Are all MCT’s created equal?
Not exactly there are four different types of MCT’s based on carbon length:
1. Caporic acid (C6)
2. Caprylic acid (C8)
3. Capric acid (C10)
4. Lauric acid (C12)
In an MCT product your looking for the composition as this may affect taste, breakdown rates and effectiveness. While broken down quickly C6 is not common in supplemental form as it does not taste good. C8 and C10 on the other hand are broken down quickly, taste good and have been shown to increase ketone production to a greater degree compared to C12. Contrastingly C12 has been shown to have greater anti-microbial properties. Therefore, when looking to supplement MCT’s for energy and performance you want to make sure you select a product high in C8 and C10.
What are other sources of MCT’s?
MCT’s can also be found in coconut oil, MCT oil, palm oil and whole milk!
What is MCT Oil?
A unique source of energy derived from coconuts, MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil is metabolized rapidly to give you long lasting energy, assist in weight loss, and optimize performance.
MCT Oil vs. Powder?
MCT oil has well established health benefits and as a result has gained a lot of popularity of a general health supplement. However, there are several limitations affecting its widespread use. First off, some individuals may experience GI distress limiting the amount of MCT’s they can tolerate. Additionally, traveling with a bottle of MCT oil on you is not exactly ideal and therefore people with busy schedules may find it difficult to add it into their routine outside of their morning coffee. Therefore, researchers developed MCT oil in the powder form which appears to solve some of these limitations as it causes less GI distress and can be taken on the go. However, the only potential downside with MCT powder is that it needs to pair with a fiber and some companies may use low quality fibers which may spike insulin.
How can you use MCT oil?
You can use MCT oil in your morning coffee, in a protein smoothie or as a dressing for your salad!
How can you use MCT powder?
As some MCT powders are flavored they can be taken on their own. Additionally, some still prefer to add MCT powder into their caffeinated beverage of choice. Lastly, and perhaps the greatest strength of MCT powder is that is can be used in baking!
Does MCTBar have a shelf life ?
The shelf life is 6 months from the date it’s made. Find the exact Best By date printed on the side of your MCTBar wrapper.
Are MCTBars only for people on the ketogenic diet?
Absolutely not! MCTBar’s are a great tasting low carbohydrate protein bar suitable for anyone. While, those on a low carb/ketogenic diet may be more familiar with MCT’s they can provide a fast source of energy for everyone!
Can my child eat an MCT bar?
Coconut oil and MCT oil have been shown in some cases to cause gastric distress. However, when consumed in the powder form MCTs are more GI friendly. Therefore, MCTBar’s are suitable for everyone.
When should I eat an MCT bar?
MCTBar’s are great for when you’re looking for a quick energy boost on the go. Some of our favorite times to have an MCTBar are:
• When traveling to maintain MCT consumptionFor breakfast to start the day off
• Pre-workout to fuel an intense lift or cardio session
• Post workout to start the recovery process
• Before studying to aid in cognition and satiety
