Resistant starch is dietary starch that passes undigested into the colon where it can have effects similar to non-starch polysaccharide (dietary fibre). The results support the potential health benefits of incorporating foods containing high levels of both resistant starch and non-starch polysaccharide, such as whole grain breads and legumes, as part of well balanced diets containing fruit, vegetables, cereals, meat/alternatives and dairy foods.
