Beverages containing Cluster Dextrin™ possess a unique combination of highly concentrated carbohydrates and fast gastric emptying properties. This enables them to promptly replenish carbohydrate energy, moisture, and electrolytes during exercise. A study conducted in 1999 (Biosci Biotechnol Biochem, 63: 2045-2052) confirmed that when administered to mice, Cluster Dextrin™ significantly increased their endurance during swimming compared to water and glucose solution.
Furthermore, Glico conducted research on the “critical swimming time” of elite swimmers in a pool. The results showed that the beverage containing Cluster Dextrin™ outperformed water and glucose drinks significantly.
