Overnight Oats and Resistant Starch: What You Need to Know

 Oats are a whole grain and have long been known as a healthy breakfast option, but did you know that uncooked oats in particular contain higher amounts of something called resistant starch?  Resistant starch has been gaining in popularity recently and offers plenty of health benefits. Here is everything you need to know about resistant starch and how to incorporate it into your diet.

What is Resistant Starch?

Resistant starch can be classified as a type of fibre and is basically what it sounds like : a starch that is “resistant” to digestion. Starch is one of the main forms of carbohydrates in our diets and is found in plant-foods such as potatoes, beans, and grains. Resistant starch can’t be digested by the small intestine like other forms of starch and is fermented in the large intestine. As the starch ferments, it becomes a prebiotic : it feeds the good bacteria in our gut in order to maintain a healthy balance between them and the bad bacterias. The fermentation process also produces short-chain fatty acids which help fuel the cells in our colon and can be beneficial for our gut health(1). More and more research is suggesting that a healthy gut plays a crucial role in our overall physical and mental health. (2)

Some of the other known health benefits of resistant starch include (3) :

  1. Helping to manage blood sugar levels 
  2. Improved satiety, which may help with weight management 
  3. Improved bowel health and may help reduce risk of colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease 
  4. Increased absorption of micronutrients 
  5. Helping to improve cholesterol levels 


In addition to uncooked oats, other whole grains such as barley, beans, lentils and seeds are also high in resistant starch .The amount of resistant starch can also change in some foods based on the way it is cooked. For example, cooked and cooled rice, pasta and potatoes are higher in resistant starch than the varieties that were cooked and not cooled (basically eaten right away). When you reheat the leftovers, the higher amount of resistant starch remains. Green bananas are also high in resistant starch since their starch becomes more digestible as they get ripper. (3) If you are feeling creative, you can even try green banana flour, which can be found at health food stores or online. Just add a teaspoon or two into a smoothie or mix it into your overnight oats (But be careful, if you bake with the flour, the resistant starch disappears due to the high temperature!). Also, many foods high in resistant starch are high in fibre. When incorporating them into your diet, make sure to do it progressively and to drink plenty of water to prevent digestive discomforts.


As you might have guessed it, eating more overnight oats is a tasty and easy way to incorporate resistant starch into your diet. The best thing is, you also get the benefits of fibre, protein and some essential vitamins and minerals (such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium). Milk and the wide variety of toppings that you can add to your oats like fruits, nuts (or nut butters!) and seeds also increase the nutrition content. So, what are you waiting for? Enjoy some today for breakfast or as a great snack!

it’s fun to watch the animals in the woods free and they do the things they want to make the family and live well so we must give them the value of living independently
it is good to live a simple happy family even if it is not so much money or rich just together and without pain and it feels good to have all the people in the world know how to endure life

Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website yumi-organics.ca…

I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

Like yours, many of them have great content.

But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

Here’s a solution for you…

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to discover what Talk With Web Visitor can do for your business.

You could be converting up to 100X more eyeballs into leads today!

Hey, this is Eric and I ran across yumi-organics.ca a few minutes ago.

Looks great… but now what?

By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

Here’s an idea…

How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

You can –

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

Pretty sweet – AND effective.
