The digestion of four sources of resistant starch (RS) has been studied in twelve healthy volunteers who ate controlled diets for 15 d periods. RS from potato, banana, wheat and maize (17-30 g/d) was compared with a starch-free diet, a diet containing wheat starch that was fully digested in the small intestine, and with 18.4 g NSP from brand/d. RS increased stool wet weight by 1.6 g/d per g RS fed for potato, 1.7 for banana, 2.5 for wheat and 2.7 for maize, but this was significantly less than… CONTINUE READING
