Q: What is MCT made up of?

A: Our MCT Powder is made up of a proprietary blend of coconut and palm.


Q: Is MCT Powder vegan?

A: Yes, MCT Powder is vegan. It is coconut (plant) based.


Q: Why is the canister so big?

A: The reason for the larger canister is that the powder is very fluffy when we fill the containers. When we initially fill the container, the powder is nearly to the top. During the shipment process, the powder settles and ends up leaving a lot of extra room in the container. Ultimately, our jar does come with 50 servings.

We are actively looking for a solution to this problem as we would like to use a smaller container since it is better for the environment and would be much easier to ship.

Q: New formulation with fiber has less MCT and more carbs. Is this still keto friendly?

A: Yes, it's still a great option for keto. Our MCT Powder has 0 grams of net carbs since all of the carbs are being derived from dietary fiber. Fiber does not significantly affect blood sugar and ketosis.
