Butterfat Keto is a unique blend of coconut sourced MCT containing 40% C8 medium-chain triglycerides with deliciously creamy organic ghee and butter from grass-fed and pasture-raised herds plus heat-stable Bacillus coagulans spores and Bacillus subtilis.

Butterfat Keto is popular with:

• Ketogenic diets
• Paleo diets
• Intermittent fasting strategies
• Low carb high-fat diets (LCHF)
• Sports and endurance athletes
• Busy and demanding lifestyles

What is MCT powder?

Medium-chain triglycerides (also known as MCT) are a group of saturated fats which get burned for energy rather than stored as fat. MCT fats are popular with keto and LCHF diets because they get quickly absorbed and readily converted into ketones providing body and brain cells with a source of fuel. Power up your morning!

If you’re new to ketogenics then it’s simply a wellness strategy that involves cutting back on dietary sugar and carbs and swapping in fats to cleverly switch the body into fat-burning mode. MCT provides your body with the types of fat that make the switch to fat-burning more efficient and effective, helping you power through your morning or get the best out of your workout.
