"Medium Chain Triglycerides" Added to Dried Apricots

zooxanthellae | Nov 13, 2011 05:12 PM

I bought a bag of Mariani dried apricots and one of the listed ingredients is "Medium Chain Triglycerides (Coconut and/or Palm Kernel)". And apricots, if it isn't just my imagination, have a slightly "buttery" aftertaste. But the fat content in a 1/4 cup serving is still listed as 0g (so I assume this means it's <0.5g). Also, the apricots feel much moister and juicier than normal.

Does anyone know why these are in there? I've never seen these in other dried apricots.
