Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Mct Oil *taste*

Has anyone noticed a plastic taste from the Upgraded MCT oil?  I know it comes in a plastic bottle and my regular MCT oil comes oin glass....  My glass bottle MCT oil's taste is pretty nutural.  The Taste from the Upgraded stuff also makes my BP coffee taste a little different too....  I don't think it mixes as well....


Thought's?

  • It might not be plastic that you are tasting. Not all MCT oils are created equally. There are different chains and different purities. Maybe those are two reasons why Dave's tastes different than other company's products.


    Massachusetts Bulletproof Resources! (Local BP resources for food/vitamins, meditation, bio-hacking/tech-centers, etc.)

    If you know of a local resource that I haven't listed, or have a warning for known local health scams or bad "BP" businesses, please PM me.

    If it's a good resource, I'll add it to the master-list (I was inspired by suntoucher & Ron Swanson.)

    Mine's okay, too. BTW I finally tried it on sushi. I got some at Whole Foods (just avocado and cucumber) and dipped it in MCT with salt, it was good!

    Dan,


    When did you purchase your MCT? I ordered 3 bottles at the beginning of September and it tasted and even smelled like plastic horribly! I have purchased many bottles of mct from Bulletproof before these 3, and they all had no taste. When I emailed customer service about it, we determined it may have gotten much too warm in the delivery process (the day before it got delivered to me it was 90+ degrees in Seattle). They sent me a return shipping label and I sent the unopened bottles back and they sent replacements. While I was waiting for them to come, I bought a bottle off of my friend who had an extra, and it tasted like nothing (a very good thing). When I opened my first replacement bottle yesterday, it made my coffee taste terrible AGAIN! I think there's something wrong with the batch this month or something. Emailing customer service about it again today. I'm glad there's someone else with this issue!

  • I did the same....  order 3 bottles to stock up....  I ordered it during the summer months and yes it gets hot here  90-100 degree's....  Perhaps I should contact customer service as well.....


    I am on my second bottle now and it is the same.


    Thanks for the tip.

  • Just cracked open the 1st of my most recent 3-pack - it arrived around 3 weeks ago.  No issue with smell or taste whatsoever.


  • Wish someone from customer service could help me......

  • No glass, no buy.




     


     


    Out of curiosity, which brand do you buy?

  • Just ordered the Octain during the sale. I've been using up a open bottle of MCT, but now you have me wondering. I'll have to check mine. MCT has always been great so far though.
  • Ordered a bottle of the brain octane a few weeks back. Got it towards the end of October. No plastic smell. The taste is actually less noticeable than my NOW MCT oil.


  • All is good with the new shipments now.... Love the stuff but wish it came in glass bottles.

  • I tried my first batch today came in about 1.4 weeks. Missing one bag from the kit, but it's cool. I'm sure I'll get the other by the time I finish this one.


    But the mct oil does smell quite bad. First try without butter in blender perfectly measured and all... Tasted absolutely wretched. I'm not sure if it is my taste buds or what. I'm used to cafe bustelo from these wild hispanics all around me.


     


    And now that I read the thread, but oil does smell a bit plasticy. Also, I blended the coffee and tsp of oil for like 20-34 seconds, there was no fusion. The oil eventually sat on the top, not in it's original state, but you can tell it was the oil.


     


    Any pointers or something?
