Key Benefits

  • For patients unable to digest or absorb conventional fats
  • MCTs are more readily hydrolyzed and absorbed than long chain fats
  • MCTs are absorbed directly into the portal circulation and do not require bile salts for emulsification

Nutritional Applications

  • Decreased pancreatic lipase, decreased bile salts
  • Defective mucosal fat absorption (decreased mucosal permeability, decreased absorptive surface)
  • Defective lymphatic transport of fat (i.e., intestinal lymphatic obstruction)
  • Severe malabsorption
