As far as the research goes, every source seems to point to Potato Starch as #1 in RS. Works for me and easy to source. I don't want to make a project out of RS, just 3 tbsps a day of PS in my yogurt or a cup of water.

I know this is rather specific, but... I keep hearing that plantains are a great source of l-tryptophan, but my research doesn't show that to be true. What's up with that? Also, if there is something to it, is there a difference in the... (more)

Plantains are 100% paleo, be it if you follow paleo for reenactment or for inspired modern health reasons. Carbohydrate and starch dense foods are not for everyone, and plantains certainly are that. However, like many of paleo-ers that eat... (more)

Are ripe plantains Primal/Paleo? Could i add them to my daily diet as any other Primal fruit? The thing is i love to have something sweet in my savory dishes as a contrast.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to cook green plantains. And also...if it comes to boiling vs cooking in oil, as it usually does with potatoes, which would be the way to maximize retention of nutrients. Thanks again for the input!!

So where do green plantains fall in the Paleo diet? Fruit or starch?

Do they contain fructose?
