It would only matter if you're doing IF, and only if there are other nutrients along for the ride. If you're consuming some pure resistant starch, it wouldn't matter at all. If you're doing something like reheated/cooled potatoes, AND you're... (more)

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 I cook potatoes and then let them cool to form resistant starch, will reheating them again destroy the resistant starch? Thanks

Yes unless you let it cool again. However I did read that the more you reheat and let cool, the more resistant starch there is.

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.
