Resistant Starch: An Overall Primer, with References

The World's First Blog With a Minimum IQ Requirement

In the process of drafting Part 2 of all the research (here's Part 1) I came across this: Resistant Starch Intakes in the United States. Its purpose is to analyze data in order to estimate average intake of RS and to provide a list of foods and how much they contain. They conclude:

The estimated intake of resistant starch by Americans is in the range of approximately 3 to 8 g per person per day. [...] By combining estimates of resistant starch intake with those of other components of dietary fiber, researchers and food and nutrition professionals will be able to more accurately estimate total intakes of carbohydrate compounds that escape digestion in the small intestine and provide nutrients and function to the large intestine.

Thing is, there was a really excellent whole initial discussion of Resistant Starch and why it's important. So, I began pulling some of the more important references for my Part 2 draft. But at a point, I thought it best to give you the whole, raw, undigested section along with the resistant references.

OK, Now Listen Up: if, so far, you've been all "meh" about this whole deal or, you're still stuck on the word "starch"...i.e., still ignorant of the fact this is not the kind that "spikes" your glucose but most often: lowers it...then take a breather, relax, put away your LC and paleo Bibles and Catechisms, and just check it out...and cure your ignorance (e.g., "I can get all the butyrate needed eating butter.").

I've denoted my emphasis in bold, below. Some of those more important references will be included in my next post.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
