In 2015, when I was in the process of creating Pure Food, I knew I wanted to include a whole food ingredient with medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) because of this special type of fat’s ability to help people burn belly fat.
I decided to use organic coconut milk powder.
This ingredient, which you can find in Pure Food Cacao Protein, has some pretty special health benefits.
Here’s why …
The Science of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)
You’re probably well aware of the heart healthy benefits of monounsaturated fats found in foods like avocados, nuts, and olive oil. I highly recommend eating more of each of those.
But there’s a “new kid on the block” type of healthy fat not everyone knows about called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). Scientists have discovered MCTs may help you:
Burn more calories
Keep you from getting sick
That’s why I decided to put MCTs in Pure Food Protein
But the problem was, all of the “MCT powders” on the market are highly processed and loaded with GMO fillers and additives.
Not how we roll around these parts.
I found the best whole food source of MCTs on the planet: organic coconut milk powder.
Most coconut powders use soy or animal product fillers. Not ours.
It’s 100% organic, plant-based goodness.
How Our Organic Coconut Milk Powder is Made
The flesh from the coconut is dried and ground into a fine powder and combined with organic ground cassava plant roots to make it mixable (since coconuts are high in good fats, coconut powder on its own is clumpy and impossible to mix).
Nearly all other companies add artificial soy- and GMO corn-based fillers like maltodextrin.
The coconut milk powder adds a subtle, sweet, creamy flavor too that I absolutely love.
