MCT is a saturated fat. Yet the classification is the only similarity that MCT has to other LCT's. It is processed in the liver, releasing a large amount of its energy as heat and the other portion as ketone bodies and does so in the midst of carbs and glycogen in the blood. It has a relationship, although not fully understood, with a rise in GH levels after consumption. It is pure energy and whatever ketones arent used typically are urinsted out later so it rarely stores up as fat, which is very unlike other saturated fats and unsaturated fats. Thats all I'm saying. Totally different effect on the body. MCT's get the same kind of treatment as carbs, without the insulin response.
