Current definition of resistant starch (RS) types is largely based on their interactions with digestive enzymes from human upper gastrointestinal tract. However, this is frequently inadequate to reflect their effects on the gut microbiota, which is an important mechanism for RS to fulfill its function to improve human health. Distinct shifts of gut microbiota compositions and alterations of fermented metabolites could be resulted by the consumption of RS from the same type. This review… 

Intake of Natural, Unprocessed Tiger Nuts (Cyperus esculentus L.) Drink Significantly Favors Intestinal Beneficial Bacteria in a Short Period of Time

Horchata is a natural drink obtained from tiger nut tubers (Cyperus esculentus L.). It has a pleasant milky aspect and nutty flavor; some health benefits have been traditionally attributed to it.

Effect of Selenium Nanocomposites Based on Natural Polymer Matrices on the Biomass and Storage of Potato Tubers in a Field Experiment

The effect of chemically synthesized selenium (Se) nanocomposites (NCs) based on the natural polymer matrices arabinogalactan (AG), carrageenan (CAR), and starch (ST) on potato tuber traits, storage,



Resistant Starches Types 2 and 4 Have Differential Effects on the Composition of the Fecal Microbiota in Human Subjects

The results demonstrate that RS2 and RS4 show functional differences in their effect on human fecal microbiota composition, indicating that the chemical structure of RS determines its accessibility by groups of colonic bacteria.

Effects of resistant starch type III polymorphs on human colon microbiota and short chain fatty acids in human gut models.

The findings suggest that RS polymorph B may promote large bowel health and raise the possibility of using different thermal processing to delineate differences in the prebiotic capabilities of RS, especially its butryrogenicity in the human colon.

Effects of Differences in Resistant Starch Content of Rice on Intestinal Microbial Composition.

Overall, RS as low as 0.44% from cooked rice can modulate gut microbiome in mice, which correlated to a protective effect against deleterious effects of an obesogenic diet.

RS5 Produced More Butyric Acid through Regulating the Microbial Community of Human Gut Microbiota.

The results suggested that the form of RS was the main factor affecting the physiological function of RS and that RS5, as a recently recognized form of resistant starch, could be a better functional ingredient to improve health compared with RS2 and RS3.

Variable responses of human microbiomes to dietary supplementation with resistant starch

The heterogeneous responses in butyrate concentrations upon RS supplementation are documented and characteristic of the microbiota that appear to underlie this variation are identified.
