Find the right coconut or MCT oil for you, at the right price! Isn't your health worth it?
Coconut oil versus MCT oil — which is best? And how does virgin coconut oil, which is semi-solid, compare to refined (fractionated) coconut oil, which is a liquid? We tested leading products to find what they really contained — measuring levels of MCTs (caprylic, capric, lauric acids) and other fatty acids. We also checked to see if they were rancid or contaminated with heavy metals. 

Our results clearly show which products provide the highest concentrations of MCTs. They also show that you can spend as little as 7 cents or as much as $1.68 to get the same amount of MCTs depending on the product!

Based on our tests, we selected Top Picks for virgin coconut oil, refined coconut oil, and MCT oil.
