Source for coconut oil rich in C8 and C10 fatty acids, and also C12 and other long chain fatty acids.
- Using heat and pressure, split the fatty acids from the glycerol backbone, to form fatty acids and glycerol (glycerin).
Using steam distillation and/or fractionation techniques (no solvents), isolate the C8 fatty acid fraction (or cut).
- Purify the glycerin fraction using standard distillation and non-solvent techniques
- Under heat and pressure, re-esterify the C8 fraction back onto glycerol backbones to from C8 MCT.
Using activated carbon and other solvent-free methods, purify and remove odors from the final MCT product.
- Perform rigorous quality control to assure final product meets Specifications per Standard Operating Processes (SOPs), Lot basis.
- Release lot for sale.
