About the Book

We assessed tolerance to resistant starch (Type 2 RS) on consequences of gastrointestinal fermentation using a randomized crossover design. Nineteen subjects completed all 4 phases including 1-week treatments with minimum 1-week washout periods. Supplements were balanced for energy and macronutrients, providing RS at levels of 0, 20, 30 and 40 g/d. Subjects were instructed to incorporate the supplements into their usual diet. Subjects recorded satiety, flatulence, abdominal pain and bloating on each treatment. Breath gases were collected on the last day of each phase. RS had no effect on bloating, abdominal pain or breath gas production. Flatulence increased at 30g (p=0.025) and 40g (p=0.01) RS intakes and number of bowel movements increased at 20g (p=0.002) and 40g (p=0.005) of RS intake. Methane producers had more flatus (p=0.026) and bowel movements (p=0.016) compared to non-producers. Forty grams per day resistant starch was well tolerated with moderate increase in flatulence.
