Hi, I'm Rhonda. I'm pleased to be launching our new form/blog called StarchTalk. We'll use FoodInnovation.com to help share ideas, educate and have a little fun with nutrition.
When people hear that I work in nutrition, they occasionally give me grief for eating hamburgers at lunch or not sticking to a strictly "healthy" diet (whatever that is). But, I'm just like many of you. I eat what I like, I don't worry about calories most of the time (occasionally I do), and I wonder how I can fit another 20 items into my day (every single day). I even sometimes put purple food coloring into hamburgers to entertain or freak out my family. If you can't play with food, you're missing a great entertainment opportunity.
I'm going to be talking about resistant starch in this blog. Just when consumers thought that starch was BAD (you know - empty calories, filling but fattening) nutrition researchers got clear that this particular type of starch is GOOD. Wouldn't you know it - we flipped another ingredient on consumers into the good category!
It has been fun navigating and creating the resistant starch story. I'm looking forward to blogging on it with you
