Fat Metabolism

There are many different disorders of fat metabolism. These include long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (LC-FAOD).


Dietary fat is a rich source of energy. The overwhelming majority of regular dietary fat in western diets is long-chain triglyceride (LCT). Individuals with an LC-FAOD cannot release the energy from LCT. Replacing LCT with a different type of fat known as medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) provides an alternative form of energy.


Vitaflo offers the following product options for use in the dietary management of long chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (FAOD). Find a product that meets the needs of your patient and learn how you can order Vitaflo products here.
