What is the difference between Coconut Oil, Lauric Acid, and Lauricidin®?
Coconut oil is the edible oil harvested from the meat of mature coconuts (Cocos nucifera). 40-60% of coconut oil is comprised of the 12-carbon medium chain saturated fatty acid known as lauric acid, a triglyceride.
Lauricidin® is made by combining lauric acid from coconut oil with a plant-based glycerol (non-soy) creating a pure ester known as monolaurin, a monoglyceride.
One teaspoon (one scoop) contains approximately 3g (3000mg) of monolaurin.
