    The ingredients are listed as:
    100% MCT Oil. MCT Oil from glycerin and coconut/palm kernel oil.

    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.

    No, I know that. What it says is "MCT oil from glycerin....." It's all MCT oil, just from various sources. My question was why they would source some of it from glycerin. Keeping it liquid was just a guess. Are the shorter chain ones from the glycerin?

    BTW I am trying some of this now. If you mix a tbsp of this stuff with a bit of coconut cream first then add hot drink of choice to the mug, you don't end up with an oil slick on the top and there is no need for blending and frothing implements.
