MCT – medium-chain triglycerides, which are fats that we consume.
Medium-chain fatty acids – lipids that metabolize fast in the body, making them less likely to become excess body fat compared to long-chain fatty acids found in most oily or fatty foods. The chain length refers to how many carbon atoms are in each fatty acid, with longer chains equalling a longer digestion time.
