The skinny on resistant starch: can it really help you lose weight and prevent cancer?

Until about 15 years ago, it was believed that all starches were digested and absorbed as sugars into the bloodstream. However, it has since been noted that some starches resist digestion and, so, pass into the large bowel relatively intact. These starches are referred to as resistant starch (RS). RS has numerous reported health benefits which will be overviewed. We’ll also discuss how you can consume more RS and any other questions you’d like answered about this novel food.
Café Scientifique Boulder is jointly sponsored by the CU chapter of Sigma Xi and COACS, the Colorado Chapter of the American Chemical Society
