Understanding the physiological impact and benefits of carbohydrates such as Hi-maize® resistant starch takes some digging. Between changing definitions for dietary fiber and various models demonstrating biological impact, there's more to explore and understand than ever before.Stay on top of this dynamic field with the National Starch nutrition research team, as we unravel the health benefits of Hi-maize® resistant starch. Complementing the R&D capabilities of National Starch, the nutrition R&D team offers you clear answers to tough questions, as well as solutions that withstand the test of time. Our capabilities include:
Dietary fiber definitions have been re-evaluated worldwide over the past decade. The Nutrition R&D team represents resistant starch on multiple levels, explaining the published studies in critical discussions - necessary to support large and developing market opportunities.
Research on resistant starch isolated from high-amylose corn is changing our understanding of dietary fiber. Its mechanisms are different than other types of dietary fiber, and it reveals metabolic pathways that were previously not understood. Our interpretation of the research database and close collaborations with world-renowned investigators strengthens our ability to explain the resistant starch science and move the body of evidence forward to creating interesting business opportunities.
As part of an international network of thought leaders in areas such as glycemic and weight management and digestive health, the Nutrition R&D team is well versed in the uses of resistant starch. Our ties throughout the medical research community strengthen the insights we offer you and ensure that our ingredients are supported by sound scientific evidence.
The field of carbohydrate nutrition is rapidly evolving. Our experience with resistant starch provides a strong foundation of knowledge for our team to design new ingredients - with specialized characteristics.
