Stepan Lipid Nutrition’s NEOBEE Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) were developed more than 50 years ago as an energy source for patients with fat malabsorption syndrome. Today, NEOBEE MCTs still find utility in medical nutritional products such as those designed to treat renal, enteral and parenteral conditions. They are also used in food for infants unable to metabolize long chain fats. Because of their smaller molecular size, NEOBEE MCTs are digested more rapidly than long chain triglycerides. Their metabolic pathway permits NEOBEE MCTs to serve as a ready source of energy while preventing them from accumulating as fat in body tissues.
These characteristics also enable NEOBEE MCTs to be used in meal replacement systems and sports nutrition weight management products. NEOBEE MCTs are Kosher- and Halal-certified, and are not derived from genetically modified organisms (GMO), making them ideal components in a wide variety of food applications. NEOBEE MCTs can also be interesterified with other triglycerides to produce structured lipids, which are becoming increasingly popular as the need for novel ingredients offering functional advantages in food products increases.
Stepan Lipid Nutrition ingredients are available as oils, powders and bulk capsules, and are used in the dietary supplement industry worldwide. Our ingredients deliver value in weight management, sports nutrition and heart health applications. The Stepan Lipid Nutrition team is looking forward to meeting you and discussing your formulation needs at Supply Side West.
