SoLo is involved in four major independent clinical trials
SoLo bars have been included in two on-going diabetes-related research studies funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). One is a study of youths with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Using continuous glucose monitoring, the aim of the study is to determine the impact of varying glycemic index diet regimes. SoLo was chosen as the energy bar to be included in the low GI arm of the study.
SoLo bars were recently used as part of a study conducted by investigators at the National Institutes of Health. In the study, children with diabetes were provided with a low glycemic index diet that included SoLo bars as a snack. The investigators will be looking at the results to learn whether eating lower glycemic index foods improves blood sugar levels in children with diabetes. Investigator, National Institutes of Health
The second NIH study using SoLo bars is scheduled to take place at the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute in California. It involves pregnant women diagnosed with pre-gestational diabetes. This study will attempt to prove that pregnant women who consume a low glycemic load diet, which will include low GI foods like SoLo bars, will be less likely to have high birth weight babies, and reduce the prevalence of gestational diabetes.
"The Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute will use the SoLo bars as a low GL snack for a group of obese pregnant women participating in an NIH-funded, diet intervention study. The SoLo Bars were chosen because of their clinically validated low GI and GL values, balanced macronutrient profile, great taste, convenience as a snack food, and the delicious variety of flavors." Janet King, Ph.D., Principal Investigator
A study at the Children's Hospital Boston, will be investigating the role of a low GL diet in the outcome of glucose intolerant pregnant women. Results may provide leading insight for designing pre-natal nutritional programs, to prevent predisposition for overweight and future development of diabetes in these infants.
SoLo bars are also included as part of a 5-year multi-center nationwide research effort to help clarify the link between obesity and cancer, with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
