A newer category of sports nutrition products have hit the market in recent years with many people wonder how and when they should be using them. This new category is called Glucose Disposal Agents, or as some brands refer to them as Nutrient Drivers or Nutrient Partitioning Agents. The truth is, many brands fail to educate consumers on what GDAs are and when to use them. They promote them via Instagram with foods that we would consider “cheat meals” in the fitness industry. Some of these, by definition, are well beyond the term “cheat meal.” These same brands tend to under dose or poorly formulate what we would call an effective GDA.
