According to Dr. Mark Hyman, author of "Eat Fat, Get Thin" here's the scoop: resistant starch provides unique and remarkable properties, improving your metabolism and blood sugar while optimizing your gut flora to promote weight loss. Watch this video to get the explanation straight from the good doc's mouth.
I enjoy them straight from the bag as a snack. Other people soak them in water to soften them up, and then use them in baking or in smoothies (think low-sugar date). Either way, give them a try! They are chewy and just so-slightly sweet :-) A handful satisfies me for hours.
I buy them at my local Whole Foods, or you can order them on Amazon and have them delivered to your front door.
Happy Simply Sugar Free snacking!
