The merits of a fibre-rich diet are well documented. Resistant starch (RS) is a form of starch that resists digestion in the small intestine and, as such, is classified as a type of dietary fibre. RS can be categorised as one of five types (RS1–5), some of which occur naturally in foods such as bananas, potatoes, grains and legumes and some of which are produced or modified commercially, and incorporated into food products. This review describes human evidence on the health effects of RS…

Resistant Starch and Its Applications
Resistant starch (RS) can escape digestion in the small intestine to be fermented only in the colon, thus producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). RS has beneficial effects on human metabolism and
The role of r esistant starch in human nutrition
Abstract In this paper, we examine the role and effect of resistant starch (RS) in human nutrition; further, the structure and properties of RS, the food sources based on resistance to digestion in
Structural Basis of Resistant Starch (RS) in Bread: Natural and Commercial Alternatives
TLDR
The structural factors for the resistance to digestion and hydrothermal processing of RS ingredients are reviewed, and the definition of each RS subtype is expanded to account for novel non-digestible structures recently reported.
Dietary fiber sources and human benefits: The case study of cereal and pseudocereals.
TLDR
Dietary fiber is extensively fermented by gut microbiota and it is associated with carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, with important health benefits due to its hypocholesterolemic properties, and is widely used as functional ingredients in food industry.
Resistant Starch Content in Foods Commonly Consumed in the United States: A Narrative Review.
TLDR
The data from this database will serve as a resource for health practitioners to educate and support patients and clients interested in increasing their intake of RS-rich foods and for researchers to formulate dietary interventions with RS foods and examine associated health outcomes.
Resistant Starch Production and Glucose Release from Pre‐Prepared Chilled Food: The SPUD Project
TLDR
This project will investigate, via in vitro and in vivo studies, the effects of domestic food processing techniques on the glycaemic response, and will model glucose flux data to determine the underlying mechanisms of action.
Prebiotics – an added benefit of some fibre types
TLDR
There is a need to promote high‐fibre foods across the UK population as intakes currently fall well below recommendations, and whether there are implications of consuming a diet low in prebiotics is considered.
Total and resistant starch from foodstuff for animal and human consumption in Costa Rica
TLDR
The total (TS) and resistant starch (RS) content, in a selection of typical starchy foods available on the Costa Rican market, for both human and animal consumption, is reported.
Dietary fibre in gastrointestinal health and disease
TLDR
This Review discusses the physicochemical and functional characteristics of dietary fibres and provides insight into their role in gastrointestinal health and the management of gastrointestinal disorders.
Improving starch and fibre in wheat grain for human health
Reducing the prevalence of diet- related diseases, including obesity and type 2 diabetes, is a major challenge for health professionals, food manufacturers and governments in both developed and

Health properties of resistant starch
TLDR
Pressure to agree a legal definition and universal method of analysis for dietary fibre is likely to increase due to the potential of RS to enhance colonic health, and to act as a vehicle to increase the total dietary fibre content of foodstuffs, particularly those which are low in energy and/or in total carbohydrate content.
Resistant starch in food: a review.
TLDR
This review attempts to analyze the information published, especially in the recent past, on classification, structure, properties, applications and health benefits of RS.
Gastrointestinal effects of resistant starch, soluble maize fibre and pullulan in healthy adults
TLDR
These functional fibres are generally well tolerated, have minimal effects on laxation and may lead to beneficial changes in SCFA production in healthy adults.
Resistant starch as prebiotic: A review
The increase in consumers demand for high-quality food products has led to the growth in the use of new technologies and ingredients such as RS. RS occurs basically in all starchy foods and has a
Role of resistant starch in improving gut health, adiposity, and insulin resistance.
TLDR
It is likely that there will be improved health if human individuals consume the requirement for dietary fiber and a large amount of the fiber is fermentable, and other mechanisms, such as increased intestinal gluconeogenesis or increased adiponectin, may be involved in the promotion of improved insulin sensitivity.
Digestion and physiological properties of resistant starch in the human large bowel.
TLDR
It is concluded that RS2 and RS3 are broken down in the human gut, probably in the colon although in 26% of cases this breakdown was impaired.
Short-chain fatty acids and human colonic function: roles of resistant starch and nonstarch polysaccharides.
TLDR
Resistant starch is a prebiotic, but knowledge of its other interactions with the microflora is limited and the contribution of RS to fermentation and colonic physiology seems to be greater than that of NSP.
Resistant Starch-A Review.
The concept of resistant starch (RS) has evoked new interest in the bioavailability of starch and in its use as a source of dietary fiber, particularly in adults. RS is now considered to provide
Resistant starch: promise for improving human health.
TLDR
This review provides a transdisciplinary overview of this field, including a description of types of resistant starches; factors in plants that affect digestion resistance; methods for starch analysis; challenges in developing food products with resistantStarches; mammalian intestinal and gut bacterial metabolism; potential effects on gut microbiota; and impacts and mechanisms for the prevention and control of colon cancer, diabetes, and obesity.
Physiological effects of resistant starches on fecal bulk, short chain fatty acids, blood lipids and glycemic index.
TLDR
The potential physiological benefits of the resistant starches studied appear to relate to colonic health in terms of effects on fecal bulk and SCFA metabolism.
