Medium-chain triglycerides for pharmaceutical applications (MCT)
MCTs are found mainly in palm seed oil and coconut oil. The medium-chain fatty acids are obtained from these oils using special methods and then esterified into new triglycerides (fat molecules).
Stéarinerie Dubois offers this product in EP/USP grade with three different fatty acid compositions.

MCTs have a broad range of applications. They can be used in different galenic forms, e.g. as a substrate or lubricant in tablets, soft gel capsules and dragées, or as a solubilizer, emulsifier and suppository base.Back
