The Montana Department of Commerce and the Montana Board of Research & Commercialization Technology awarded All American Pharmaceutical & Natural Foods (AAP, Billings, MT) a $80,000 research grant for a new product.
The grant will go to AAP’s current research project “KarboLyn® A Unique Homopolysaccharide Compound for Glycogen Repletion in Athletes,” reported APP, adding the Montana program supports local economic development by investing in research projects that present a clear path to commercialization.
“We’re grateful for the state support of our business through this research grant,” said Jeff Golini, executive scientist and CEO, AAP. “This investment will allow us to field research to further our product development and expand our business.”
The research study is being fielded to determine the absorption efficiency of KarboLyn vs. glucose and to assess the effects on energy levels over time, reported AAP. In the double-blind, placebo-controlled study, participants will have their glycogen levels monitored while using a treadmill.
“Our goal is to set a new gold standard for research supporting sports supplements,” said Golini. “Up until now, research in this segment has been fairly casual. We’re upping the ante by using pharmaceutical research standards when fielding this study.”
The company anticipates reporting on and publishing the study results in 2015. This is the fourth grant AAP has received from the Montana Department of Commerce in the past 10 years.
