NEOBEE® Medium Chain Triglycerides, or MCTs, are typically found in formulations that seek to incorporate a healthier oil source that offers nutritional value. Because of their efficient conversion to energy, MCTs are readily absorbed, low-calorie and non-trans fat. Main applications are in infant formula, flavor carrier, weight management and sports nutrition. Historically, NEOBEE® MCTs have been used in nutritional products for more than 40 years due to the unique way they are metabolized. As demonstrated below, unlike typical long chain fats that travel through the body's lymphatic system, MCTs are transported directly to the liver, where they are preferentially and efficiently burned for energy. Clinically supported studies have demonstrated efficient fat metabolism. When compared to conventional fats, MCTs have shown greater energy expenditure by as much as 48% and 65% in lean and obese individuals, respectively. Although they are completely saturated, NEOBEE® MCTs have little effect on cholesterol levels under normal circumstances, while providing fewer calories per gram compared to long chain fats.
