Headlines scream “Fat is back!” But which oil do you choose?

There’s a new focus on fat.

People are eating bacon to lose weight and putting butter in their coffee.

While we’ve always had healthy fat in our bars, we’ve also recently added medium-chain triglyceride oil, or more simply known as MCT oil.

It’s pretty important to know the difference between one type of fat and another.

There are some really damaging oils out there.

They are usually the cheap ones. The ones you see in most packaged goods like salad dressing, processed snacks, and condiments.

Even the fanciest restaurants are pouring on the vegetable oil. It’s cheaper.

Canola, corn, cottonseed, grapeseed, safflower, soy and sunflower oils are all examples of bad fat. Yes, even the organic, expeller-pressed kind. *

You’ve probably heard about MCT oil already, and there are reasons we chose it for B.O.S.S. Bars®:


Most people are eating an energy bar because they don’t have time for a larger meal. You don’t want to feel hungry an hour later, which you will if you eat most other bars. MCT oil helps your body release two hormones, leptin and peptide YY, which assist with this feeling of fullness.


They are called medium-chain triglycerides because they have fewer carbon molecules attached. This leads to faster digestion and more rapid conversion to energy. Instead of being stored as fat, your body uses them up right away, providing instant fuel to your body and brain.

Gut support

Just like the prebiotic fiber used in B.O.S.S. Bars®, MCT oil also helps to balance the bacteria in your gut, assisting digestion and your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. We’re all about nutrition here at B.O.S.S. and ensuring that you actually receive the benefits of all those naturally occurring vitamins and minerals in the bars is a top priority.

All the new B.O.S.S. Bars® contain MCT oil.
