WHAT IS KETOSPORTS MCT POWDER?
KetoSports MCT Powder is a powdered form of medium-chain triglycerides. Its production includes spray drying, a process that combines MCT Oil with a powder carrier. The carrier micro-encapsulates the oil and forms the powder. Particularly, this product uses Disodium Phosphate as a carrier.
The powder contains MCTs which are taken to the liver and converted into ketones. Ketones are an alternative energy source to Carbohydrates/Sugars, that can help in reducing hunger and are currently undergoing research for links with potential cognitive benefits. MCTs can help lower blood glucose level within the body when taken as part of a ketogenic diet.
The difference between the MCT powder and the oil is the delivery method, which is why the benefits of each product should be nearly identical.
However, the form is one of the main benefits of the powder versus oil, as it is easier to transport and mix into beverages than the liquids. In comparison to the MCT oils, the powders are less likely to cause gut distress issues. This results in a possibility of using higher amounts of MCT, which could double the blood ketone impact.
