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

If you have joint pain then avoid them, why mess with it? Move on to other foods like sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes baked or microwaved and then fried in butter or coconut oil are far more flavorful than white potatoes, at least for me. (more)

I find some are ok (tomato) and others seem to cause issues (eggplant, bellpeppers). It's an individual response. Test yourself with an elimination and reintroduction, and see how it works. Typically they seem to agravate joint issues.

It's the same for me, I feel more satiated with more carbs like a bit of white rice or potato/sweet potato. I don't even know why but I assume it's because some people just function better on more carbs.

They're also known as new potatoes in some parts of the country. I've been poking around, but can't find the definitive word on this. Not that there is ever a definitive word anywhere about anything. :)

The problem with toxicity in potatoes is their skin, not the flesh. So just eat whatever potato you like, their differences are small. As long as you always skin them.
