    The only time I've seen liquid coconut oil, it has other oils (pufa) in with it.

    r.i.p. OP because he had liquid coconut oil (sarcastic if it wasn't obvious)

    in all seriousness, coconut oil quickly becomes liquid because your body is hotter than ambient air, so you always ingest coconut oil as a liquid ultimately.

    Consumerlab talks about liquid coconut oil as refined. On the graph they show , refined coconut oil has more mct and less lauric and other fatty acides

    Yea OP isn't talking about melted coconut oil.

    There are "fractionated coconut oil" products that stay liquid at low temps, where normal coconut oil would be solidified. I don't know why they don't just label these "MCT oil" to minimize the confusion.

    Because they still have quite a lot of lauric acid .

    I wouldn't call ~10% "quite a lot," but I see what you're saying. Enough to barely differentiate itself from "MCT oil."

    So yeah, MCTs are beneficial
