Let’s talk Resistant Starch
What does resistant starch mean?
It’s a type of starch that is “resistant” to digestion, your body does not break it down. It literally goes through your stomach and small intestine undigested, eventually reaching your colon where it feeds your friendly gut bacteria. Your gut flora houses live microbes that love to eat. The resistant starch acts like a prebiotic and feeds the live microbes in your colon.
The best sources of resistant starch are green banana, green plantain, plantain flour, raw potato starch or cooked and cooled white rice. Rice must be cooled or kept overnight so the starch builds up.
Resistant starch is good for the gut flora, there are many benefits such as burns fat, protects against colon cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
They are simple, quick and a delicious healthy snack for adults and kids alike.
