March 03, 2020Reviewer: A customer in South Carolina* I bought this product specifically to help the hypoglycemia I experience overnight. So far it has been extremely helpful. Since it "resists" digestion, it releases glucose very slowly over a period of hours. I take one or two tablespoons before bed--usually in a small amount of oatmeal or something similar, and add some stevia and/or a flavoring. A little bit of coconut oil helps as well. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I take some more. Have not had a hypoglycemic episode since taking this product.
January 19, 2020Reviewer: A guest* This corn starch belongs in every sophisticated blend of prebiotic fibers. Potato starch is a debatable resistant starch. I began taking green banana flour and responded extremely well on a total-health level. I now complement the green banana starch with LifeSource Resistant Corn Starch 260. I liked it so much that I eliminated all psyllium husk in my smoothie, replaced with gram-by-gram resistant corn starch. On a polite level, a nearly life-changing way to take satisfaction in doing the dishes is $22/kilo inulin, 1 tbsp. psyllium husk, green banana flour, and Resistant Corn Starch 260.
January 17, 2020Reviewer: Joan in Utah* This product is known by different names depending on who markets it, such as "Hi-Maize" or " Hi-Maize fFber" or "Resistant Corn starch 260". It would cause less confusion if it had a common name for the same product. I have had a chance to use the resistant starch in cooking several items and it is good in foods with texture (like baked goods, meatloaf, casseroles, mashed potatoes, sloppy Joe's etc.). I could tell that it had been added to the pudding and beverages, but I appreciate being able to add "fiber" to cooked dishes. ( Most resistant starches like potato starch and green banana flour lose their "resistance" when cooked.) Thanks for carrying this product at a decent price.

It is great to add fiber to your protein smoothies. Added to an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend, it makes a thin, crispy gluten-free pizza crust that is better than regular flour pizza crust. I highly recommend using resistant starch in all kinds of recipes.
