Lipids > for food

BTC’s range of lipids produced by BASF is named Delios®. These medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are produced by esterifying glycerol with mixtures of caprylic (C:8) and capric (C:10) fatty acids, which are fractionated from coconut or palm kernel oils.
They are specially processed to achieve superior oxidative stability and low color and they are further refined to remove residual fatty acids, which is finally resulting in a product with essentially no odour or flavour.
