Although resistant starch is technically a starch, it acts more like fiber during digestion than a starch. Typically, starches found in carbohydrate-rich foods such as grains, fruits, and vegetables, are broken down into glucose during digestion and that glucose is used as energy by the body. Much like fiber, resistant starch "resists" digestion and passes right through the small intestine without being digested. Because of this, some researchers classify resistant starch as a third type of fiber alongside soluble and insoluble fiber.
While resistant starch is found naturally in certain foods, the cooling period of the cooking process can create higher levels of resistant starch. When starchy foods are cooked, starch absorbs water and then swells. During cooling of cooked foods, some of the starch crystallizes into resistant starch. Cooling foods in the refrigerator or at room temperature will cause resistant starch levels to rise.
Health Benefits of Resistant Starch
Not only does resistant starch act like fiber during digestion, it also offers many of the same health benefits as fiber, including:
Aids weight loss and digestive health
Helps prevent constipation
Helps to maintain blood sugar levels
Reduces the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease
Reduces the risk of colon cancer
Increases mineral absorption
