Coconut oils supporting a ketogenic diet

Coconut oils supporting a ketogenic diet

In addition to its wide range of supplemental oils derived from coconuts, IOI Oleo is now introducing two new products to support a Ketogenic diet: WITARIX® MCT C8 and WITARIX® MCT C8 pure coconut.

A ketogenic diet, better known as a low-carb diet, is one that is characterised by an extremely low carbohydrate content and is very rich in fat. Due to the low level of carbohydrates, the body burns more fat as a new source of energy. This process is known as ketosis. Lasting weight loss can be achieved through balanced eating habits within a ketogenic diet together with the new products from IOI Oleo Nutrition. Both products provide a faster solution for a low-carb diet and perfectly complement their present ingredients portfolio for products aimed at food-conscious consumers.
