Resist not the pleasure of food with Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw's Glycemic Control Resistant Starch

With the arrival of Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw's Glycemic Control Resistant Starch, Strategy #1 of Durk & Sandy's 21st century weight loss program has now grown. Thus it's now even easier (and tastier) to promote healthy weight loss by...

  • Lowering the glycemic index of many foods
  • Turning what you eat into time-released food
  • Avoiding the negative consequences of sugar

Resistant starch is a starch that resists digestion in the small intestine, where most ordinary starches are quickly broken down into glucose. Resistant starch moves on to the large intestine, where some of it is fermented and where it creates more healthful short-chain fatty acids. Much of it ends up being excreted, because it's not there long enough for intestinal bacteria to digest it.

Research has shown that a meal high in resistant starch decreases peak glucose and insulin concentrations as well as the total amounts of glucose absorbed and insulin released. When combined with a naturally beta-glucan-rich fiber, such as Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw's Glycemic Control Flour, Quick Flakes, Nuggets, or Large Nuggets, the results can be even more dramatic.

Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw's Glycemic Control Resistant Starch is at least 60% resistant owing to its amylose content.

As Durk and Sandy say, "Starch foods can more filling and a lot less fattening."

Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw's Glycemic Control Resistant Starch is designed to revolutionize the way you eat, to promote weight loss, and to improve your health, without the need for calorie counting or even exercise—and without giving up the pleasures of eating!

Pleasure without pain...now who could ask for more than that?

Suggested Use

Use as a substitute in any recipe that calls for starch. Resistant starch is easily incorporated into a broad range of low-moisture foods, including breads, pies, cakes, muffins, cereals, crackers, snacks and pasta, without compromising taste, texture or appearance compared to other forms of fiber.

Other Ingredients

Naturally high-amylose, high-resistance corn starch

Not like a real corn starch

Posted by LoveLife on Apr 13, 2013 | Verified Purchase

If I bake something with this starch, it works. However, when I tried to make a pudding with it, it didn't make it thick and I had to throw away all other products. That's disappointing. For just baking this price is too high (
