I’m Done with MCT Oil

Why I Don’t Use MCT Oil Anymore #keto #lowcarb #highfat #theketodiet

I’m sick of ALL the problems that come with MCT oil – the mess, inability to mix with other ingredients, and digestive issues when you take too much. Instead of MCT oil, here’s what I’m using to boost my ketones…

Move over, MCT oil, there’s a new sheriff in town and it goes by the name of MCT oil powder. You need to hear why I’m off the oil, onto the powder, and why you should follow suit. A refresher on MCT’s and a breathless breakdown of the advantages of MCT’s in powdered form.

As the old keto saying goes, “Out with the MCT oil, in with the MCT oil powder.”

Are you sick of your slippery bottle of MCT oil creating a mess in your kitchen cabinet? Sick of the oil slicks on the tops of your coffees and smoothies? Sick of, you know, actually getting kind of sick because your stomach simply can’t handle the MCT oil?

Have I got the perfect solution for you: MCT oil powder. It’s a super simple hack, but one that I promise is going to absolutely revolutionize your relationship to MCT’s. Many people who’ve given up on MCT oil aren’t even aware that another option exists. Today, I’m going to tell you why I’m never going back and why you should dump the oil for the powder, too.

Pick up my favorite MCT oil powder, Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder. (Don’t forget to use the coupon code HEALTHFUL for a 15% discount!)

I WAS NOT PAID FOR THIS VIDEO. I’ve started making more product-based videos because our community asks for them above all else. Understanding the benefits and drawbacks of a product may help you to make decisions for yourself on what may or may not help you on your ketogenic journey. One of the MOST POPULAR questions on the book tour was how to avoid digestive distress and still eat MCT oil, and this is what I told everyone, so figured it be great as a video for those who couldn’t join in the book tour events.

If you’ve given up MCT oil because of the cost, the film of oil it added to your drinks, or the effect it has on your gut – this video will give you the information you need to get you back on your MCT game.

  1. I am sensitive to palm kernel, and I remember to have read somewhere that Perfect Keto MCT oil powder is derived from coconut oil… also the product MCT powder+collagen of the same brand, in the official site, reports this specification, but I can’t find it again about the MCT POWDER alone: considering what just written about MCT+COLLAGEN of Perfect Keto… do you think or can find somewhere that is just from coconut and not from palm kernel?
    It would be really useful to me if I’d know it… Thank you!

    • Hey Roberta! I just checked with Perfect Keto for you and they guarantee that it is all derived from coconut oil. None of their products contain any ingredients derived from palm kernel, and there is no chance for cross-contamination. Thank you so much for reaching out!

      • Thanks a lot for your support that reassure me! While I was waiting for your answer ( I consider you as a serious and reliable font ;-) ), I had contacted Perfect keto too and they confirmed me the presence of just pure coconut oil and acacia fibre and also gave me a prospected analysis pdf that I appreciated a lot and let me consider them great for the attention payed to the costumer! Now I also know by you that neither cross-contamination would be possible so I couldn’t desired anything better.
        WONDERFUL and completely safe for me to enjoy :-) !!!

  2. Hi, I have been okay with tsp of MCT oil, just cannot get to that TBSP dose without come cramping? Is that similar to your experience? And what is equivalent dose of powder to TBSP of MCT oil?

    • I haven’t experienced cramping, but I have heard of that side-effect! As for the serving size, 2 scoops (20g) of Perfect Keto packs about the same amount of fat as 1 TBSP of MCT oil.

  3. NOW I see this blog post… I just spent $25 on a large (maybe 16-ounce?) bottle of MCT oil at my health food store… and I’ve already opened it so I can’t return it. SIGH Oh well, eventually I’ll use it up… 1 Tbsp per day so maybe by 2020?? and I’ll try MCT powder then!

    • Hi Sara! Ack, that’s so frustrating! You can totally still use MCT oil the same way that I used to – adding it to coffees and recipes and such. It’s still a great tool, but I definitely think MCT powder is better overall!

  4. Hi Leanne,
    Because of this very post I started using Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder and am loving it! When combined with hemp hearts it makes drinks sooo creamy!!
    (I’ve been using the last of my Brain Octane in my Fat-Burning Bedtime Shakes.)
    I have just noticed that Perfect Keto has a 100% C8 Liquid MCT Oil. I’m wondering if you have or plan to try it? If so, what are your thoughts? I’m not sure I want to go back to an oil, but with 100% C8, I must admit I’m a little tempted.
    Thanks and have a great day :)

    • Hey Zada! I’m probably not going to try it, since I’ve had such issues with MCT oil in the past. It does sound interesting, though! If you try it, please share your thoughts, I’d love to hear about your experience!

  5. So in your recipes in your book “The Keto Diet”, do you substitute this powder for the MCT oil? Just bought your book and digging thru it now. Thanks!

    (From another Monaco owner :))

    • Hi Brenda! If the recipe is using MCT oil as a primary liquid in the recipe, then it can’t be directly substituted. If it’s being used as an additive, however, you should be able to substitute!

  6. Can one be allergic to MCT oil? Recently bought Bulketproif XCT oil and my wife thinks her hives might be due to it. I was thinking of trying Buletproof Brain oil but not sure. We have used Keto MCT Powder. Seems more expensive. Liked it though. Your thoughts?


    • Hmm, I suppose someone could be! Was she ok using the MCT oil powder, though?

  7. Is powdered mct oil safe for breastfeeding? Are there many keto supplements that are? Or would you just stick to foods? Thanks :)

    • I can’t see why not! But of course, don’t hesitate to consult with your doctor if you’re concerned about it. Whole foods are always an awesome way to go to get all the necessary nutrients in :)
