Medium-chain triglycerides—their composition, preparation, and application

Abstract

Medium-chain triglycerides, prepared from fractionated fatty acids of vegetable oils ranging from caproic to lauric, have been prepared and used in the treatment of patients suffering from malabsorption syndromes. Commercial practices for processing of the kernel oils to obtain such fractionation of fatty acids are described, and the practical sources for such medium-chain fatty acids are given. Medium-chain esters of synthetic fatty acids and modifications of such esters for special medicinal and nutritional uses are suggested for future consideration and application.
