What is MCT Oil?
MCT is a fuel source that converts quickly to energy, which means you can use it faster than other sources of ingested food-based fuel. MCT oil is a supplement made from medium-chain triglycerides, which is a healthy fat that is absorbed quickly into the bloodstream. MCT Oil is popular amongst those enjoying a low carb or keto diet but can be utilised in many different lifestyles.
Is Cacao powder the same thing as Cocoa powder?
Almost. They both derive from the same plant and are both harvested the same way. It’s the processing pathway that is different that separates cocoa from cacao powder. Cocoa is sweeter, making it a favourite for baking chocolatey goods but it loses some of its nutritional value through the higher heat process. Cacao is the more raw form of the powder, which, while less sweet, provides other health benefits and is often used as an alternative in baking. Cacao powder contains iron, fibre, potassium, magnesium and protein.
