Resistant Starch & Ancient Grains

Do you like pasta?

There is nothing more Italian and homie than a Pasta Sunday Lunch with family and friends and yet...

(1) BAD NEWS

Our Modern Food Companies in their race to cut cost and increase profits have robbed us from this meaningful and lovely experience. How?

  1. They've changed the DNA structure of our wheat grains and
  2. Mill our grains to an extent where the amount of resistant starch is almost null

(2) GOOD NEWS

Papa Vince's pastas are made with Ancient Grains - grains whose DNA has not been altered and they are still rich in resistant starch

Many studies in humans show that resistant starch can have powerful health benefits:

  • Improves insulin sensitivity
  • Lowers blood sugar levels
  • Reduces appetite
  • Feeds the friendly bacteria in your intestine and increases the production of short-chain fatty acids like butyrate
  • and more

(3) HONESTLY,

My family and I did not know all the above in such details when we introduced Papa Vince's pastas. We were simply following our conscience and intuition:

  • Nothing GMO can be any good
  • Nothing with Pesticides can be any good
  • Nothing that has ingredients that cannot be pronounced can be any good

Recently, my PHD son, decided to help us and OH BOY, AM I GETTING EXCITED!!! He is digging into all kind of research papers and journals and I can't wait to share everything we and he are and is discovering. See below the links to the studies
