RICHMOND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nutiva®, pioneer of plant-based organic superfoods that nurture vitality, today announced the launch of the world’s first USDA Certified Organic MCT Powder, or NuMCT™, a supplement uniquely crafted from 100 percent young organic coconuts and gut-supportive prebiotic acacia. Medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs, are found naturally in coconuts and deliver easily digestible fatty acids that quickly convert to ketones, rapidly supplying the brain, muscles and other tissues with sustained energy while supporting the metabolism.*
“Many consumers, from high-endurance athletes, to paleo and keto dieters, and more, are seeking cleaner, plant-based energy sources to fuel their busy lifestyles,” said John Roulac, founder and chief visionary officer of Nutiva. “With the growing popularity of MCT oil, we wanted to introduce a supplement with all of the benefits of MCT oil but in a convenient format that won’t leak, is easy to take on-the-go and is quick to mix into smoothies and shakes. Consistent with Nutiva’s mission to tap into the nutritional power of the world’s most nourishing superfoods, like coconuts, we’re thrilled to introduce Organic MCT Powder, packed with MCTs and prebiotic acacia fiber, to help people energize their lives in a way that’s good for both people and the planet.”
As a creamy alternative to traditional MCT oil, Nutiva Organic MCT Powder is gentler on the digestive system* and blends effortlessly into smoothies, coffees, shakes and more, serving as an optimal pure energy source for all occasions including powering up in the morning for enhanced mental clarity, as an energy booster between meals, for pre- or post-workout support and as part of a keto or paleo diet.* Nutiva Organic MCT Powder is Keto Certified, paleo-friendly, USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan Action Certified Vegan, naturally gluten-free and free of dairy, corn, soy, palm oil and hexane. Containing 3g of fiber from prebiotic acacia fiber and 10g of MCTs, including 56 percent caprylic acid (C8), 39 percent capric acid (C10) and five percent lauric acid (C12) in a single serving, Nutiva Organic MCT Powder boosts gut health, supplies pure, clean fuel, and maintains 0g net carbohydrates.*
