The Fresh Test, 50-gram powder contains Non-GMO Glucose, Crystalized Lemon and Organic Mint. Please note, due to the dark color of the dried mint, it is noticeable within the powder. If you notice specks in the powder it is completely normal and to be expected! Our product has been tested to contain exactly 50-grams of glucose. It has negligible amounts of fiber, protein, sucrose, fructose, fat, etc.
The Fresh Test team and third parties have done rigorous clinical and laboratory testing to ensure equivalency - while also keeping our products as natural, organic, and delicious as possible.
The Fresh Test’s NonGMO Dextrose source may be derived from either NonGMO Tapioca or Organic Corn. If you have severe allergies please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The American Diabetes Association suggests that a Glucose Load Test be performed at 24 – 28 weeks of gestation in women not previously diagnosed with diabetes.
When conducting the two-step approach, the 50-gram glucose beverage should be consumed within 5 minutes. A plasma glucose measurement is then be performed at 1-hour. This test is performed at your laboratory or physician's office. Consult with your healthcare provider for more details. Please note, the 50-gram, 75-gram & 100-gram glucose tests have different requirements.
If you are a healthcare professional and have more questions about the ADA's screening and diagnosis of GDM please refer to the 2021 Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes.
It’s important to ask your provider if you’ll be taking the 50-gram glucose load test(commonly known as the 1-hour test) or the 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test(commonly known as the 2-hour confirmatory test). The requirement varies between offices. Here are general guidelines as published in theAmerican Diabetes Association's 2022 Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes Journal.
If you’re taking the 50-gram glucose load test, the ADA suggests that this is a non-fasting test. You will be asked to consume a 50-gram glucose beverage (within 5 minutes) 1-hour prior to a plasma blood glucose draw. This will be performed at a laboratory or at your OBGYN’s office. If the plasma glucose value exceeds a specific threshold you will then be scheduled for a 100-gram oral glucose tolerance test. If you failed the 50-gram test and are required to do the 100-gram 3-hour glucose tolerance test, the ADA suggests a fasting plasma glucose measurement prior to consuming the beverage. Per your provider and laboratory instruction, subsequent glucose measurements will be taken at the 1-hour and 2-hour mark.
If you’re taking the 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test, the ADA suggests that this is a fasting test. First, your plasma glucose will be measured. Then you will be asked to consume a 75-gram glucose beverage (within 5 minutes). Your plasma blood glucose will be measured again at 1-hour and 2-hour.
Fresh Test, LLC realizes that you may need your product quickly, to meet the timeline of your glucose screening test. We do our best to get product out within a day. To help you rest easy, if the product does not arrive in time you might be able to reschedule the date of your test or you’re welcome to email Cailee@thefreshtest.com for assistance with a return.
The Fresh Test, 50-gram powder has a shelf life of 1.5 years. For storage, avoid exposure to heat. Color variation may occur due to the natural flavorings (crystalized lemon and organic mint).
The Fresh Test, 50-gram beverage has an average six month shelf life and must remain refrigerated (this product has had manufacturing delays due to Covid, however we expect this option to be back in stock in the fall).
The Fresh Test is not responsible for lost or stolen product, product left out for extended periods of time, carrier weather or unrelated delays. Additionally, The Fresh Test cannot be held responsible for damaged or compromised product due to incorrect addresses or unopened shipments.
The Fresh Test has gone through significant research and development to ensure precise equivalency to standard 50-gram glucose beverages. This R&D along with quality ingredient sourcing is reflected in the price.
Please refer to the Products page of this website. Discounts are posted for bulk orders of ten or more, intended for healthcare professionals, such as obstetricians, endocrinologists, laboratories, and wellness stores.
Additional discounts are available for LabCorp customers and providers. Please visit Labcorp's Testing While Expecting & Partners in Pregnancy for more information.
Typically The Fresh Test™ is an out-of-pocket expense. Glucose Beverages are historically purchased by laboratories being that it is a part of a global CPT code, inclusive of both the plasma blood draw(s) and glucose beverage(s). However, for women needing a more natural, additive-free, and palatable glucose beverage, The Fresh Test is an extra expense. However, we have good news! For those with HSA accounts, The Fresh Test™ is now approved to be purchased via HSA Cards. You can either use your FSA/HSA debit card when checking out on our site, or use the itemized receipt (which will be in your inbox after you make a purchase). If you have any questions or specific requests regarding this, please email Cailee@thefreshtest.com.
Women are becoming increasingly health conscious, especially during pregnancy. Consumers frequently request a natural glucose option to have a better screening experience. A common misconception is that The Fresh Test™ is an alternative glucose test. This is a misconception, as The Fresh Test™ is a validated and FDA-registered equivalent glucose beverage in relation to traditional glucola. The only difference is that The Fresh Test™ has none of the additives in the traditional glucose drink.
This has long been sought after due to the taste of traditional glucose beverages and unnecessary ingredients such as conventional GMO corn, Brominated vegetable oil, Red Dye #40, BHA, BPA, Sodium Benzoates, etc.
The majority of traditional glucolas were developed in the 1960s, and our team felt it was time for a more natural option. As health-conscious individuals, please do your homework on the aforementioned ingredients. Please visit our Nutrition Factspage for more information.
FDA registered as an equivalent glucose load test beverage, The Fresh Test adheres to extensive testing and quality control with the help of partners SK Laboratories and Exact Scientific. Fresh Test, LLC ensures products are equivalent to current brands; with the same active ingredients and safe inactive ingredients. Laboratory testing and certificates of analysis available upon request.
The Fresh Test's IFU is printed on each packet and follows the same guidelines as traditional 50-gram glucose beverages. For ease of use, mix The Fresh Test packet with 10 ounces of cold water at home. Consume the glucose beverage one hour before a plasma blood glucose draw.
50G GLUCOSE LOAD TEST BEVERAGE. For oral consumption only. Use as directed by a physician. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: For use in the Glucose Load Test. Mix complete contents of packet with 10 ounces of water and use immediately. INDICATIONS & USAGE: For use in detection of (or screening for) glucose intolerance in the evaluation of diabetes mellitus and gestational diabetes mellitus when used with the glucose load test. DOSAGE AND ADMINISRATION: Consult a physician for details. This product is meant to be mixed with 10 oz of water and consumed an hour prior to a plasma blood glucose sample. For additional information refer to the American Diabetes Association.
Fortunately, The Fresh Test™ is stocked throughout the country and many providers are familiar with the product. Keep in mind, this product is not an unstudied alternative, but rather an exactly equivalent product void of additives. We’ve found it’s best to share the information in two ways.
1. Please email email@example.com your providers email address so that we can provide them with product information, validation studies, white paper and certificate of analysis.
Our team hopes to empower mamas through education and natural options. If you feel you need more assistance, do not hesitate to reach out and we’ll walk you through everything.
If for some reason our product is not okayed by your provider, you are welcome to send it back for a refund. Returns will be subject to a $4.50 return shipping fee, which will be deducted from your refund. Outbound shipping fees from the original order are not refundable.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with a return label.
