Resistant starch fiber made from corn, can easily be added to many foods by simply adding it.
To be effective in controlling blood sugar and weight, the amount counts. I have found that three tablespoons of the resistant starch fiber per day (not all at once), is ideal for most people. For a smaller person 2 tablespoons may be sufficient. It can be used in baking. Simply substitute 25 % of the flour in anything with resistant starch fiber. I do bake with it, however I found it has a greater effect on my blood sugar by using it raw. I can add a tablespoon to 1/2 cup greek yogurt (sweetened with Splenda or Stevia). Two teaspoons to 3/4 cup of mashed potatoes, that really works! one tablespoon in a smoothie. When I dredge any food in flour, I use half flour and half resistant starch fiber. You cannot tell it is in there. You can use 1 teaspoon to each egg for scrambled eggs or omelet. I make pizza crust with half resistant starch fiber. It is great. Any recipe works. I add it to the tomato topping too. The latest thing I made are sugar free chocolate truffles. They taste like sin but have a whole tablespoon of resistant starch fiber in them. I often eat two of them after a meal and I never want to eat between meals. The resistant starch fiber affects starch in the diet, but not sugar. Make everything sugar free with Splenda or Stevia if you put sugar in you defeat the purpose as the sugar will raise your blood sugar.

I just bought the resistant starch fiber and resistant starch flour from King Arthur Flour Co. at http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop-home/inde...
I can use the flour in my bread making machine replacing 25% of the flour that I normally use. I really like the fact that we can put the resistant fiber in other foods as well. Thanks you so Much Rosalie for doing all that research.

Do you use a particular kind of starch fiber? Have not tried looking for this yet. Do they sell it in the grocery or will I need to purchase online? BTW, truffle recipe? Where? Lol

They do not sell it in the grocery store. It is mostly sold to food processors.
You might be able to buy it on line, but their is some fake stuff being sold on the internet. It is regular corn starch that raises blood sugar like crazy.
The company that makes it does not sell it retail only wholesale in 50 lb bags. Grandma Rose

How do you make sure it's not GMO corn they use to make this? Corn is not my friend in any manner but my tongue which enjoys the taste, but the rest of me reacts to corn. How to you purchase this? I cannot just be corn starch.

It isn't corn starch and if you react to corn then I would not advise you to try it.

That is correct Kats if you react to corn. However their is another form of resistant starch fiber that could be used. It is Inulin. It is made from chicory root. It works the same way.
It is a little more challenging to use than the corn based one, but worth learning about and helpful to diabetics. like us.

Thanks RosalieM for taking pity on me and writing your above discussion. I plan to buy resistant starch flour tomorrow and try it in my breakfast shake. If that works, I will try other things as you have stated. Last will be your chocolate truffles (can I have the recipe?).

Sorry I cannot give out the Truffle recipe as I just spent $1000 to have it protected so others couldn't steel it. I have spent thousands of dollars from my retirement fund to equip my test kitchen so I could do all the testing. I need to recover some of that money as I am not rich. I am hoping to sell my recipes to a large company who can make them and put them on the market.
so you all can buy them in the store. Grandma Rose

I sure hope someone uses your recipes on products the public can buy — just imagine how it will improve the quality of life for many people!! I wish you the very best.

Hi,
Thank You! Making products that will help other diabetics is my passion and is the reason I spent so much money on my test kitchen. I hope some company that can make enough products to put in stores will contact me. I have developed 4 mixes to be used in the home if that ever happens. Cookies, muffins, smoothie mix and chocolate truffle mix. I am working on a truffle for people who don't like chocolate.

I am not doing this reply thing right yet. King Arthur's prices are really high. I looked at their recipes. Be care full they are not made for diabetics. They use sugar and treat the Hi maize as just a fiber as everyone else does. It is much more than that for diabetics, but must be used correctly. Your blood sugar will go up with the sugar in their recipes.
Do not eat more bakery because you can use Hi maize resistant starch fiber, it will not help you.
I use it to make my VERY LOW CARB DIET a little more diverse.

I can't Roxanne, I can send you a package of mix so you can make they yourself. It is so easy. If I sent you the recipe, you wouldn't be able get most the ingredients that make them diabetes friendly. Sorry
