Hi-maize® Resistant Starch

When it comes to "healthy eating", just about everyone can do a whole lot better.  Adding Hi-maize resistant starch to your diet makes it easier to increase dietary fiber, maintain healthy blood sugar levels and maintain a healthy weight.

Resistant starch is starch that resists digestion in the small intestine and reaches the large intestine.  It is fermented in the large intestine by the resident beneficial bacteria.  The products of this fermentation are used as energy.

Some foods are naturally rich in resistant starch: unprocessed whole grains, under-ripe bananas, beans and legumes.  Other foods naturally contain low levels of resistant starch:  cooked and cooled potatoes, rice and pasta.  Natural resistant starch is also available as an ingredient for home baking, supplementation and food manufacturing.  This ingredient is
Hi-maize® resistant starch.
