    I'll have to look for the original paper as some of the significance of this has been a bit garbled in the translation.

    I think it's talking about post exercise drinks, and specifically rehydration rather than replacing glycogen stores. Either way, its nice to know that my preference after a ride for cold skimmed milk (mixed with some High Five Chocolate recovery powder) might not be just dead tasty, but good for me as well!
