My personal experiment shows the positive effects resistant starch can have on your blood sugars, therefore potato starch can help you manage diabetes. I urge you not to eat a lot of high carb foods to obtain resistant starch, but to use Bob’s Red Mill Raw Potato Starch.
resistant starch and diabetes
AT THE VERY LEAST Resistant Starch (Bob’s Red Mill Potato Starch) is an inexpensive prebiotic that benefits the lower gut.
At the most, I’ve seen it improve insulin resistance, improve ‘glucose processing’ and blunt the blood glucose effect of foods.
Now.. I’ve witnessed it apparently blunt a blood glucose spike from intense exercise.
In other words, given all the above reported benefits of resistant starch for diabetics, you would have to be an IDIOT not to experiment… so I did. :)
