I didn't have access to the full study on wiley.com, so here's a brief article about it.

I think the key here is the word could.  It still remains to be seen just what effect it would have on a diabetic.

The ketone drink value may be more in the water than in the other ingredients.  The protocol taught to me by a CDE was:  when I have high blood sugar numbers to take additional insulin and also to drink lots and lots of water to flush out the ketones.

I am afraid that as lc/hf/mp/keto is gaining recognition that all sorts of "cures/aids" are going to show up on the market. Drinks, supplements, whatever, only to enrich the producer with no real help to the diabetic.

Jimmy Moore's book Keto Clarity really lays it all out and it is so easy to follow with no "supplements" needed. Jenny Ruhl's Books Blood Sugar 101  and Diet 101 are other great resource. None of these require purchases of additional supplements. 

We "old timers" who have been doing this N-1 experiment for years know it really is so easy and we don't need the "aids'.
