In 2008, scientists in Europe discovered a new way to cook starches. Through a patient, precise cooking process, starch yields a gentle, slow-digesting carbohydrate. This patented cooking method is applied to a specific strain of non-GMO cornstarch to create a novel type of carb that delivers a steady release of glucose over several hours. The UCAN Company was formed for the purpose of manufacturing this one-of-a-kind carbohydrate, which we named SuperStarch®.

Altra™ wasn't started in some corporate office, but in the back room of a Wasatch Mountain running store. The founders —elite athletes and retail managers— wanted a running shoe that encouraged running the way you were born to run. They noticed that the design of most athletic shoes hurt runners more than they helped. The elevated heel of the typical running shoe being sold promoted high-impact landings, and their narrow toe box design squeezed the toes out of their natural splayed position. What began as experimental shoe alterations grew into what we know to be the Altra running company today. Innovative from the get go, the brand is the only running footwear company to feature the cushioned Zero Drop™ platform and FootShape™ toe box technologies, which can be found integrated into every style across their entire footwear line.
