Women are becoming increasingly health conscious, especially during pregnancy. Consumers frequently request a natural glucose option to have a better screening experience.

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 Facts page for more information.
