General Comment
2011-03-29 Caprylic acid, together with caproic (C6) and capric (C10) acids, constitutes 15% of goat milk fat (L. caper = goat). Also found naturally in coconuts and breast milk, it makes up 70% of the fatty acids in commercial medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and is used commercially to produce esters used in perfumery; in dye manufacture; and therapeutically as an antimicrobial agent in the livestock industry.
