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

Does resistant starch (like raw potato starch), as a type of prebiotic fiber, adversely affect the gut if someone is suffering from dysbiosis? Would it feed the potentially pathogenic bacteria (in my case, Enterobacter cloacae and Klebsiella... (more)

Taking it with quality probiotics and fermented foods should help you out. Seems to have helped clear up some of my issues. But do read that thread as well as other sources.

Can anyone tell me where I can get dried, salted, unripe plantain? Ideally in the UK. I want them because they are a good source of resistant starch and I'd like an alternative to potato starch sometimes.

I wouldnt do it. Cook some rice and potatoes, put it in the fridge, heat again, will give you plenty of resistant starch without all the irritants of an unripe serotonin-rich fruit.

I believe that if you re-heat your cold potatos (or whatever) higher than 140 F, then the resistant starch in them changes back to digestible starch again.

They are supposed to help with insulin sensitivity and other things. But they are carbs, aren't they? I am a type II diabetic.

Resistent starch is fiber, probiotic fiber. Undigested by the gut until it gets to your gut microbes. They metabolize it into SCFAs.
