Here’s How to Cook with MCT Oil (Recipes Included!)
You’ll find high-quality, ultra-pure MCTs in BrainMD’s new quick energy supplement…
Brain MCT Energy is an oily dietary supplement that offers medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), which rapidly boost the body’s energy generation, especially in the brain. These are “good fats” that provide tremendous benefits for mental performance including focus and learning.
MCTs are easily digested in the intestine to make small fatty acids, which are efficiently absorbed. The liver readily converts these fatty acids from MCT into even smaller molecules called ketones, which all our cells can easily use for energy.
MCT Oil and Appetite
Satiety occurs when a person feels full while eating a meal. A dietary supplement that promotes satiety is useful for those who want to reduce their caloric intake by consuming less food. MCT has shown promise for increasing satiety.
Some clinical trials suggest that supplementing with MCT can assist with maintaining a stable weight. By enhancing satiety, which restrains appetite and promotes fat burning, MCT can be helpful for curbing unhealthy eating and stabilizing body weight.
MCT Oil Benefits for Brain & Body
Besides its benefits for promoting mental performance – including memory, learning, and focus – Brain MCT Energy may help those who tire easily when doing mental work and need more mental energy. It may also benefit individuals who have trouble maintaining a stable blood sugar supply to their brain.
Brain MCT Energy supplies biochemical superfuels for an optimal brain and body.
How to Cook with MCT Oil
Incorporating MCT oil into a meal can be a challenge for some. However, once you get started, there are many ways to cook with MCT oil. From smoothies, soups, and salads to healthy baked goods, MCT oil can lend a smooth taste and energy boost to many types of food.
3 Reasons Why You Should Prepare Foods with MCT Oil:
- Flavorless and Odorless – MCT oil has a neutral flavor that allows it to blend into many recipes.
- Doesn’t Need to Be Melted – There’s no need to melt MCT oil since it doesn’t turn solid at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
- Doesn’t Degrade Quickly – MCT oil doesn’t become as rancid as many other oils and may last for years if stored properly.
MCT Oil Meal Prep Tips
- Healthy Add-on – MCT oil can be added to your morning smoothie, coffee, tea, or yogurt. It also can make the base for a healthy salad dressing. You can also drizzle MCT oil over dips, soups, oatmeal, or roasted vegetables.
- Swap Out Other Oils – For a change of pace, substitute MCT oil for vegetable, olive, or avocado oil.
- Preserve Its Potency – MCT oil should be used for low to mid temperature cooking. Its smoke point is 160C/320F. Higher temperatures will damage the fats and reduce the potency of the oil.
