POCK­ETS OF RE­SIS­TANCE

Not used to scan­ning la­bels for re­sis­tant starch con­tent? We hear you, so try these for starters

Women's Health (UK) - - EAT SMART -

BA­NANAS

Un­ripe green ba­nanas con­tain 34g RS per 100g. This low­ers to 6.2g when they’re very ripe.

PASTA

Just-cooked pasta = a rise in blood su­gar, but re­heat it and the RS con­tent halves the blood glu­cose in­crease.

OATS

Oats con­tain 3.6g RS per 100g, but soak them overnight to boost lev­els fur­ther. Win.

POTA­TOES

When cooled, you’ll ben­e­fit from a RS con­tent hike from 0.5g to 3.2g per 100g, plus a rise in vi­ta­mins C and B6.
