What is Resistant Starch?

Resistant Starch is a type of starch that is not digested in the stomach or small intestines, reaching the colon intact. Thus, it ‘Resists’ digestion and you don’t see spikes in blood glucose or insulin levels.

When you think of ‘starch’ you probably think of white fluffy bread, white potatoes or processed foods and you usually try to avoid this types of foods. These types of starches break down into sugars which raises your blood sugar and insulin levels.

Resistant Starch does the opposite, instead of digesting in the stomach or small intestine and rapidly breaking down into sugars it escapes digestion and moves its way to the large intestine and colon and feeds the good bacteria (Probiotics) in your gut.

What can Resistant Starch (RS2) do for me?

  • May help prevent colon cancer and promote colon health
  • Help treat and prevent diabetes
  • Promote weight loss
  • Lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Increase absorption of minerals, especially calcium
  • Improves digestion
  • And much more…

Does Zuvii Banana Flour taste like bananas?

No. Zuvii uses unripe green bananas to make its banana flour. Zuvii processes its banana flour before the sugar content develops in the bananas. The raw bananas give the banana flour an earthy, whole-wheat flavor. You’ll have a tough time believing it comes from bananas.

How does Zuvii Banana Flour compare to other gluten-free flours?

The high starch content of Zuvii Banana Flour allows you to cook more with less flour. We recommend starting with 30% less. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, you will want to start with 2/3 cup of Zuvii Banana Flour to achieve the same result. Zuvii Banana Flour is higher in potassium, natural vitamins and minerals. Eating Zuvii Banana Flour products can help improve digestion, bowel movements and much more.
