I wonder if status of MCT oil would be the same as coconut oil.
CO is neutral for me on SWAMI. Should I assume the same for MCT oil? Thanks.

MCT does not have to be extracted from coconut oil. It can be derived from other sources (palm kernel) fro example.

Even if the particular MCT you happen to be derived only from coconut oil, it might not have the same rating.

Coconut oil is derived from coconuts and does not necessarily have the same rating as coconuts. So I am not confident that a food derived from coconut oil will have the same rating as coconut oil.

Thanks Kent! I had no idea that MCT could be derived from palm kernel.

I guess, since it has not been tested by Dr D, it would be consider neutral.
