    RS questions

    Shop Now
    I always get confused by this. If I cook potatoes and then put them in the fridge and eat them after either cold or warmed up again are they RS?

    What about potato salad. I try to get the one with the loqest sugar. I'm assuming because those are either raw cold potatoes or cooked and cooled potatoes they are RS as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes if the reheat is not overlong. Most food is pleasantly warm around 125F.

    RS yes, but storebought is going to be made with soy/canola mayonnaise--not worth it IMO.

    But keep in in perspective:

    1 medium potato, tennis ball sized, 150g or so, can be looked at like this in terms of resistant starch:

    Raw - 22g (RS2)
    Cooked - .25g (RS3 for the rest)
    Cooled - 3.5g
    Re-heated - 4g
    Re-cooled - 4.5g
    Re-re-heated - 5g
    Re-re-cooled - 5.5g
    Re-re-re-heated - 6g
    Let those who have dyspepsia—and that means a multitude of ills which the American people in their luxurious habits are fast bringing upon themselves—try for a time the potato diet. We have tried it not for months, but a few days at a time—long enough to satisfy us of its good effects. Newspaper article from 1849

    I wonder,by boiling you already lose nutreints,if by everytime reheating you destroy even more nutrients?

    Question Asian market potato starch?

    Learn More
    I posted this question in another thread, but I think it probably belongs here.

    My Asian market carries a couple brands of potato starch and mung bean starch. Does anyone know if the Asian market's potato starch is like Bob's Red Mill? It's about $1.20 for a 400gm (14oz) bag. Here's a picture of the one I bought:
