Summary We set out to estimate resistant starch (RS) intakes using the 24-hour food intake data from the 1995 National Nutrition Survey (NNS) database of 13 858 Australians. As there are often significant differences in the RS content of foods reported by various authors. we calculated intakes based on both published maximum and minimum value, for individual food,. RS intakes (mean and SEM) for all persons were in the range 3.4 ± 0.03 g/d (minimum estimate) to 9.4 ± 0.07 g/d (maximum estimate). Adult males (19+ years) consumed more RS (10.7 ± 0.11 g/day maximum estimale) than adult females (19+ years) (8.2 g ± 0.08 g/day maximum estimate). RS comprised a greater proportion of the total starch intake in the very young and in the older age groups. Across the population. foods contributing most to RS intake were potatoes, bananas and white bread.
