Q: What is resistant starch?
Resistant starch passes all the way through the small intestine without being digested, thus acting like fiber, sweeping the digestive system. When it reaches the colon, it’s used by the bacteria there as fuel, producing a healthy type of fat, which protects colon cells, promoting good bacteria and suppressing bad. It helps with bowel regularity and causes less storage of fat in the body from food. Resistant starch is a great addition to the diabetic diet as not only does it improve insulin sensitivity, there is improved tolerance of insulin the next day. Resistant starch can help greatly with mineral absorption, especially calcium and magnesium.
