Resistant Starch Central
Easy reference on all things resistant starch
Resistant Starch is a new topic to most people. Researchers have known about it for about 30 years and health professionals in America started learning about it less than a decade ago. Australians were ahead of us by a few years, but nevermind. Cook books were first published in the U.S. on resistant starch in 2010. You will soon be hearing a lot more about this health-promoting, metabolism boosting carbohydrate as a health claim petition is being evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the potential claim that resistant starch helps to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
This website endeavors to outline how resistant starch can help you to improve your diet and health, and to hopefully explain many of its stories and history. This is the low-down - simple version for non-science geeks - of the science-based reality.
