COOKING WITH TRUE MCT

Blend it: Add MCT to your morning smoothie, yoghurt, coffee or tea. It
makes a perfect base for salad dressings.


Drizzle it: Adding small amounts of MCT to any food will add some healthy
fats and enhance the flavour. Try it drizzled over your porridge, soup, dips
or roasted veggies.


Replace other oils: Do you have a recipe that calls for vegetable, avocado,
coconut or olive oil? Substitute with MCT oil!
MCT oil can be used for low to mid temperature cooking: The smoke point
of MCT oil is 160C/ 320°F – higher temperatures will start to damage the
fats, making the powers of MCT oil less potent

Supercharged MCT Mayonnaise

Ingredients:
1 egg
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar/lemon juice
1 tsp salt
Seasonings of your choice
(garlic, herbs, lemon zest)
½ cup olive oil
½ cup True MCT


Method:
Place the first four ingredients into a blender and blitz on high for 1 minute, until frothy. Reduce speed to medium and begin to (slowly!) pour in oil, beginning with olive oil, then moving to MCT oil. The combination of oils helps the mayo emulsify better than if you just used MCT. The slower you go with adding the oils, the better the mayo will turn out. Transfer to clean jar, cover and store in the
fridge.
