Hi-maize® resistant starch can significantly raise the fiber content and improve the nutritional quality of foods. It has the potential to improve the health value of the diet, without requiring major changes in eating habits. It can also improve the texture of specific foods.
Specific Health Benefits
Until quite recently, it was assumed that any starch consumed was digested and absorbed in the small intestine. The key feature of Hi-maize® resistant starch is its significant level of dietary fiber, which is identified as resistant starch – a type of starch that is able to resist digestion and absorption in the small intestine and reach the large intestine. To date, more than 180 nutritional studies have been published on the specific health benefits of Hi-maize® resistant starch.
Hi-maize® resistant starch delivers four major categories of health benefits:
- Glycemic Management: Hi-maize® resistant starch helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of a high fiber diet.
- Energy Management: Hi-maize® resistant starch is a low glycemic carbohydrate. It has a sustained energy release because it releases part of its energy in the small intestine and the remaining part of its energy in the large intestine. It helps to balance energy in the hours following a meal.
- Weight Management: Hi-maize® resistant starch delivers fewer calories than the flour that it replaces. It has been shown to help healthy people eat less and enhances the production of satiety hormones. In addition, it may increase lipid oxidation in healthy people.
- Digestive Health: Hi-maize® resistant starch helps maintain a healthy colon. As a prebiotic fiber, it optimizes digestive well being.
