Draft of The Science of UCAN SuperStarch®

UCAN -VS- Sugar

The low, high, then low cycle of blood sugar found among sugary food products is commonly known as the sugary roller coaster.

It's important to maintain steady sugar levels during the day, training and racing. The advantage of steady sugar levels is to use fat for fuel efficiently, stable and long-lasting energy, protect lean muscle, and reduce sugar cravings.   

The Science 

UCAN Company commissioned an independent IRB study at the University of Oklahoma to study the effects of SuperStarch in athletes.

Three major findings from this carefully controlled, double blinded experiment confirmed SuperStarch:

1. Maintains the most desirable blood glucose levels
2. Demonstrates a muted insulin response
3. Enhances the body's ability to use fat as an energy source
4. Insulin response of maltodextrin is significantly higher than SuperStarch

SPN (Sample Size of One) Experiment 

Here is a sugar comparison chart showing five sport nutrition brands and UCAN SuperStarch.

*Last updated April 2019

We performed an experiment and found products containing added sugar  fluctuated sugar (glucose) and insulin levels, and UCAN SuperStarch showed stable levels.

* 50g of each product was ingested and tracked using a Continuous Glucose Monitor with a sample size of one. This was not set up as a rigorous scientific experiment. Each body will respond differently to these products.
