I discovered some interesting facts during my n=1 trials with resistant starches:

When I cook a sweet potato and cool it for 24 hours, it apparently (as per my glucose tolerance tests) retrogrades approximately 1/2 of the starch to the resistant type. If I let the same potato set in the refrigerator for 3 or more days, it retrogrades even further to where it is over 90% RS. This is good news, because it means I no longer have to include the retrograded sweet potato starch in my insulin calculation (ie: carbs).

This is not the only bonus of retrograding. In addition to the benefits of the vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants, the RS is an excellent nutrient for the good gut microbes. The kind that provide gut lining and brain tissue nutrients.

Here's an "interesting" podcast on the subject y'all might find informative. Don't be put off by some of the subjects discussed. There are some pearls in there:

Still listening to the 2014 Reversing Diabetes World Summit
I think anyone on FS would benefit from listening to most of these speakers 4-5/day for 12 days (you can download the whole summit on mp3 after it's over for a nominal fee). Yesterday we had some fantastic presentations on ketogentic and Paleo diets. We've also had plenty of different variations of low carb diets over the past week. Today's theme is exercise. Looks to be very informative.

Oh yeah, I did a glucose tolerance test on raw green banana to see if I could tolerate that form of resistant starch. I won't post all the minute by minute measurements here cuz I don't know how many folks are really interested in RS, but the bottom line is 56g of green banana is purported to contain 13 total grams of carbohydrate. My n=1 test indicated that my BG was effected as if it was 7g of carbs. So there were 6 grams of resistant starch and fiber in that 56g (2oz) of raw green banana. I'll have to see if I can get an even greener banana for another test, but so far tests between cooked and cooled sweet potato, raw potato starch, raw green plantain, and raw green banana show the raw green plantain to be the leader with zero carbs and 9.5g of resistant starch and non-digestible fiber per ounce (28g). Tastes like...bleeeeachhh by itself! But will work fine in a smoothie.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
