The fact that it stays liquid is a selling point for me. The glycerin must be how they keep it liquid.
And, Tee, yes, if you are not used to eating coconut products, taking a big bunch all at once can cause the trots. If you work up to it slowly this isn't a problem.

You are not correct in this Paleobird. There isn't glycerin mixed in with the oils. MCT oil is composed of short chain (C8 and C10) fatty acids. Long chain saturated fatty acids (like stearic, C18) is a solid at room temp, but the shorter chains are liquid. In addition, they can't claim 100% on the label if it's cut with something else.
