Quick Sticks are easy to use and dissolve quickly!
Just tear open the Quick Stick and pour directly into your mouth. Enjoy a quick boost of glucose. It’s that simple!
Absorption of the powder occurs upon contact due to the large surface area it covers in the mouth. The taste is far superior to Glucose Tablets or Gels on the market and is conveniently packaged for people on the go.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are Quick Sticks 10 Carbs?
Statistically speaking from surveys performed, we found out that 60% of people with diabetes who experience hypoglycemia use 10 grams of carbs or less to treat a low. But we also know that people with diabetes are individuals of all shapes and sizes, and that treatment modalities are never a “one size fits all” formula. With this and consumer feedback in mind, we designed Glucose Quick Sticks in a way that can be adapted based on each individual’s needs, making consumption of glucose both faster and easier.
How Do Quick Sticks compare to glucose tablets and gels?
A key factor that separates Quick Sticks is the rate at which they are absorbed. Because of the powdered form, a Quick Stick can cover a larger surface area in your mouth and starts dissolving before you even begin to swallow. Glucose Quick Sticks have superior taste and are much more conveniently packaged so they can fit into any pocket, bag, or purse.
Is water needed to use Quick Sticks?
No. Just pour the contents of the package into your mouth to get a quick boost of glucose.
Under what conditions are the Quick Sticks usable?
Any! They can withstand any temperature and do not get crushed or have exploding packaging. We have even heard stories of people taking them into water or during mud runs (although we do not recommend it).
