Different Resistant Starches Elicit Different Glucose Responses

This clinical study highlights the different glucose responses in humans elicited from different types of resistant starches. On three separate occasions, eleven healthy subjects randomly consumed solutions containing 30 grams of either dextrose (DEX), resistant starch type 2 (RS2) or cross-linked resistant wheat starch type 4 (RS4XL). After all occasions, the glucose level of each subject was measured for two hours following the consumption.

In Vitro Digestion of RS4 Type Resistant Wheat and Potato Starches and Fermentation of Indigestible Residues

In this study, RS4-type resistant wheat starch (RWS) and resistant potato starch (RPS) were subjected successively to in vitro digestion with pepsin and pancreatin-bile, and the indigestible residues (82.1% db and 74.1% db, respectively) were recovered and subsequently fermented by in vitro techniques using fresh human fecal microbiota as inoculum.

Effect of Cross-Linked Resistant Starch on Wheat Tortilla Quality

This study determined the effect of two forms of cross-linked and pregelatinized cross-linked RS, Fibersym® RW (Fsym) or FiberRite® RW (FRite), respectively, from wheat on dough and tortilla quality and acceptability.

Physicochemical and Functional Properties of Wheat Starch

This study highlights the structure and myriad properties of wheat starch in various food systems. Granule shape, size, and color, plus the proportion of A- and B-granules, amylose content, and molecular structure largely determine its functionality in food. The role of wheat starch is portrayed in three categories of flour-based foods that differ in water content. Wheat starch influences the appearance, cooking characteristics, eating quality, and texture of pasta and noodles, and its role is more than a filler in yeast-leavened bread products. Recent developments in the properties and applications of commercially important wheat pyrodextrins and RS4-type resistant wheat starches are reported, along with their use to produce fiber-fortified foods. Gluten-free foods are also discussed.

White Pan Bread and Sugar Snap Cookies Containing Wheat Starch Phosphate A Cross-Linked Resistant Starch

This study shows that cross-linked resistant wheat starch (XL-RS4) can be incorporated in white pan bread with less than 15% loss of loaf volume when added at 10 to 50% flour replacement, provided gluten and yeast nutrients are added to the bread formula. Cross-linked resistant wheat starch can also be incorporated in sugar-snap cookies at levels up to 50% flour replacement without significantly changing the texture and the appearance of the cookies.
