Resistant Starch & Gut Health - Bridging the Fibre Gap

Let's Gut Real - Easy to Digest Nutrition Science

Science & Medicine

Resistant starch is something we get a lot less of in the diet, but plays an important role as a prebiotic, as well as exerting benefits to our health by way of the gut microbiota. This week I interview Solnul's Jason Leibert and Dr. Jason Bush on their research around resistant starch. Dr. Jason Bush is an investigator of the microbiome. As the Chief Scientific Officer at MSP Starch Products Inc., he has led two clinical trials, which unlocked numerous clues explaining how resistant starch is utilized in the gut microbiome to influence human health. Jason Leibert is a resistant starch advocate and storyteller. He has a successful track recorded of business development within the life sciences sector and, as the Chief Growth Officer at MSP Starch Products Inc., leads the business trajectory of SolnulTM and strategic growth for the company. Over the last several years, he's built an internal team and an international village of believers to help bring back the ancestral story of prebiotic potato fiber and preach the resistant starch benefits.  In this episode we discuss: A bit about Solnul from Winnipeg MB What is resistant starch? How much resistant starch do we get in the diet? How were ancestral diets rich in resistant starch in comparison with modern diets? How does resistant starch fuel bacteria in the gut microbiota How resistant starch stimulates changes in the metabolism of humans How resistant starch improves insulin resistance How resistant starch improves IBS-like symptoms at a 7 gram dose, and still has prebiotic like effects without increasing gassiness You can learn more about Solnul(tm) at their website here.
