Unlike the potato starch which sinks in water and needs constant remixing, this plantain flour will first sit atop the water, and will be quick to clump and cling (especially to a spoon), so it requires more mixing than potato starch to get it into solution but less to keep it in solution (if you're a slow drinker).
I suppose a blender might make quick work of the clumps. Note that the clumps are like dust balls, so if you get any in your mouth and explode them with your tongue, you may be in for a bit of coughing (not unlike the sensation of too much cinnamon hitting the back of your throat).
As for the effects of resistant starch, I find this plantain flour to not cause any gastrointestinal discomfort or excessive problems with gas, as compared with my use of unmodified potato starch, and I find it to help maintain my good spirits, bowel movements, vivid dreams, and good sleep. It is no substitute for a proper (and self-researched) health-inducing diet, lifestyle, or sleep habits, but resistant starch certainly has aided me as I navigate my way towards a better understanding of what I ought to include or avoid into my daily life.Read more ›
Re: what the previous poster said about bananas - I have reactions to bananas and not to plantains and this has never been a problem for me.
