The nutritional benefits of consuming grains high in resistant starch

Refined grain flour lacks adequate amounts of dietary fiber needed for disease prevention and despite the recommendations for increasing fiber intake, the majority of individuals lack dietary fiber in their diet. High amylose cereal grains that have a higher resistant starch content in the endosperm of the grain may be a solution to this fiber gap, as they produce refined grain flour that is both higher in fiber and functional for food manufacturers. Attendees of this session will learn about high amylose cereal grains, their nutritional benefits, and how to use them in bakery applications.
