SuperStarch®

We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by food and energy claims. Want a better understanding of why UCAN is the real deal? Dive into the science behind SuperStarch®, the key ingredient in UCAN products.

SuperStarch® is a patented energy source without sugar or stimulants that delivers a slow-release of carbohydrates to steady your blood sugar.

What Makes SuperStarch® Unique?

SuperStarch® is a complex carbohydrate that doesn’t spike blood sugar, delivering a slow and steady release of glucose into the bloodstream. SuperStarch® does not cause a significant rise in blood insulin levels, which permits greater use of fat for fuel relative to other carbohydrate sources. The key difference between SuperStarch® compared to other low glycemic foods and fibers is that it provides extended stable blood glucose levels, which translates to steady, long-lasting energy. It’s a smart carb that provides steady energy and is compatible with fat burning during exercise due to its low insulin response.

How It Works

The development of SuperStarch® evolved from the innovative discovery of a food that could provide up to ten hours of energy (as glucose) for children with a rare metabolic disorder. We start with non-GMO corn and apply a patented, natural cooking process with just the right amount of heat and moisture over a long period of time. This changes the way the starch is metabolized and allows it to deliver steady, long-lasting energy. There’s a lot of noise out there, but there’s nothing else like SuperStarch®.

SuperStarch vs Fast Acting Carbs - Energy over time chart

Simple carbohydrates cause a big spike in blood glucose and give you a short-lived boost, but they soon leave you more drained than when you started. SuperStarch® is a smarter energy source to avoid the spike & crash in blood glucose that commonly occurs with most simple carbohydrates like sugars and starches. The slow-release of carbohydrates provided by SuperStarch® helps athletes and active people maintain steady energy levels without the spike & crash. UCAN products deliver smarter energy powered by SuperStarch®.
