RICHMOND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nutiva®, pioneer of plant-based organic foods that nurture vitality, today unveiled new Organic MCT Oil – a revolutionary USDA Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified liquid oil that delivers a concentrated serving of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) for clean energy. An industry first, new Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is crafted through a patented organic process that gently removes the fats in virgin coconut oil that are solid at room temperature. Unlike many non-organic MCT oils, Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is hexane free and made without any chemicals or filler oils, so there’s no harsh aftertaste. The result is a clean, 93 percent MCT oil with a light coconut flavor.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a unique type of fatty acid naturally found in coconuts that support the metabolism and are easily digested and burned by the body for energy and fuel.* Loved by health and wellness enthusiasts around the world, MCT oil can also help support weight management along with a balanced diet and exercise.* New Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is derived from pure virgin coconut oil and delivers the highest MCTs per serving – 13g – which is more than any other MCT oil. Ideal for athletes or those following a vegan, paleo, or plant-based diet, Nutiva Organic MCT Oil provides a quick boost of MCTs and can be easily added to smoothies, shakes, coffee, salads and more.
“A resurgence of high-endurance lifestyles and modern routines are driving explosive growth of real food options for clean energy,” said John Roulac, founder and CEO of Nutiva. “However, many consumers may not realize that most non-organic MCT oils are processed with harsh chemical solvents, like hexane, filler oils and other unappealing ingredients. We saw an opportunity to revolutionize this space by creating the first ever USDA Certified Organic MCT Oil. This oil is truly a breakthrough – not only does it contain a higher level of MCTs, but its purity and sustainability are unparalleled.”
Nutiva Organic MCT Oil is also vegan, non-hydrogenated and contains 0g of trans fats. Available in 16 and 32 ounce bottles Organic MCT Oil is sold online at Nutiva.com, and begins shipping to retailers nationwide in July.
Like all other Nutiva products, new Organic MCT Oil helps support small organic farming communities, by donating one percent of sales to programs that support sustainable agriculture and healthy communities. Nutiva has donated more than $4 million to date. In partnership with the Grameen Foundation, Nutiva has also provided 100,000 coconut seedlings to coconut farmers in the Philippines, and supports the FarmerLink program which gives farmers access to sustainable agriculture training, an early warning system for typhoons, and warns of pest outbreaks.
