The Fresh Test, 50-gram powder contains Non-GMO Glucose, Crystalized Lemon and Organic Mint. 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.

CLICK HERE to view The Fresh Test Ingredients



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. 

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.

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. Do not drink any of the fresh pressed beverages that you suspect has been in temperatures over 40ºF.

Additional discounts are available for LabCorp customers and providers. Please visit Labcorp's Testing While Expecting & Partners in Pregnancy for more information.

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.

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.
