Resistant starches are found in dried beans, bananas and mangos (especially under-ripe ones), and starchy foods like potatoes, rice, and pasta that have been cooked and then cooled. Something about the cooking and cooling process converts starches into resistant starches. So, for example, a cold pasta or potato salad will contain more resistant starch than freshly cooked pasta or a baked potato.

Sourdough bread is higher in resistant starch than bread made with regular yeast. Something about the fermentation process that creates sourdough appears to alter some of the starches. The end result is that sourdough bread doesn’t create as quick an increase in blood sugar as regular bread. Cool, huh? I recently wrote about the health benefits of sourdough on my Nutrition Data Blog. I’ll include a link in the show notes
