If you cook/cool/reheat white potatoes does the resistant starch stay intact? Does it matter how you reheat them? Oven/fry/microwave? Cheers

How bad of a reaction do you have to white potatoes? If it isn't too scary maybe try it out, but I think that red skinned potatoes are still white potatoes, the nightshade kind, just a slight variation in breed.
