UCAN delivers smarter energy powered by SuperStarch®, a patented, non-GMO food starch that delivers a slow-release of carbohydrates to steady your blood sugar, keeping you fueled and feeling good. UCAN Energy Powders and UCAN Energy Bars deliver steady, long-lasting energy with no spikes and no crash.
HOW TO USE SUPERSTARCH® ON A LOW CARB DIET
SuperStarch® is a unique carbohydrate that breaks down slowly over time and causes a minimal rise in blood sugar and insulin, making it a carbohydrate that’s compatible with a low-carb diet. Here are some ways to benefit from UCAN products if you’re low carb:
- Drink 1 serving of UCAN Energy Powder 30 minutes prior to long and intense workouts to sustain your energy without a rise in insulin that limits your ability to burn fat.
- Mix our Plain UCAN into a post-workout protein shake, especially after a hard session, to avoid a post-workout crash and replenish your glycogen without a rise in insulin that limits your ability to burn fat post workout.
- At the beginning of the diet when you might suffer from the “low carb flu” and carb/sugar cravings, have a scoop of UCAN + Protein between meals to help maintain your blood sugar and improve compliance with the diet.
