This can be a tricky one, but overall a wonderful question. 👊
 
Generally, we would not consider consumption of any of our MCT oils to constitute as "breaking" a fast.
 

Here's why:

A small amount of quality fats, such as our MCT Oil or MCT Creamer, can be helpful during a fast because they most likely will not spike insulin or blood sugar.*
 
Since insulin levels or blood sugar are not spiked when consuming liquid MCTs the way carbs or protein would, your metabolism may be able to continue burning body fat.*
 
MCTs may help provide a degree of satiety (reduced hunger) that can allow you to continue a fast that you would otherwise struggle with.*
 
For the above reasons, most people are okay with consuming liquid MCTs during their fast.
 

The flip side:

For some people, any caloric intake (from carbohydrates, protein, or fats like MCT) constitutes "breaking" the fast.
 

Overall:

It really just depends on what type of fast you are doing and how strict it is.
