The powder form of caprylic acid has a number of advantages over the oil form. Specifically, the powder is great for baking, is easy to travel with and is smoother on the digestive system.
The caprylic acid powder we use is the absolute best on the market. Not all MCT's are created equal. Many inferior MCT products will add as much as 50% of C12 in their mix. Remember, the number of carbon molecules in MCT's matter. While technically a MCT, C12 responds in the body like a long chain fat and does not reap the benefits of the other MCT's. And you know what? It does not raise ketone levels so it will not actually help the body burn more fat, just store it.* And that is certainly not what you want!
Caprylic acid, C8, is superior. That is why we use it in our products. Ingredients matter.
Common MCT powders will also use maltodextrin or milk based substances as binders. Not our caprylic acid powder! Ours uses 4.5 grams of pre-biotic acacia fiber to help improve gut health. The gut microbiome is very important in promoting optimal health and supporting athletic performance and the acacia fiber found in our capyrlic acid powder will support a healthy gut.*
At the end of the day, be confident that the caprylic acid powder in our Smart Cocoa and Smart Coconut Creamer, along with our other top notch ingredients, will support your health, microbiome and athletic performance much better than any other cocoa or creamer product on the market!*
