I have found that resistant starch fiber is helpful for blood sugar control and weight control.
Seven years ago I found resistant starch fiber and have been using it ever since. How it works is
our body makes an enzyme to digest starch, when having resistant starch fiber in the same meal such as in mashed potatoes the resistant starch fiber attaches to the enzyme and doesn't allow all of the starch to digest. The starch becomes a fiber for one hour and passes out of the body without affecting blood sugar as much. It also cancels some of the starch calories. It doesn't affect sugar. I use Splenda in place of sugar. It also makes you feel very full so you don't want to eat as much.
It has helped me keep my blood sugar down and lose and keep weight off.
