Potato Starch

Plain Language Summary

Potato starch reduces the damage to the gut lining that alcohol causes by providing energy to the good bacteria in the colon.

Summary

Potato starch contains high levels of type 2 resistant starch (RS). Colonic fermentation of RS produces butyrate which can be used as energy for the gut lining. Dietary fiber can also modulate immune reactions in the gut and liver. [zotpressInText item=”{MQRWMMIB},{WDCMHDDP},{KCTQQK4F},{WWXFUUJZ},{ZIGWEM9Q}” etal=”yes”]
