Started taking this as a nutritional supplement for the Resistant Starch provided by potato starch (not aware of other brands of potato starch on the market, have seen only this one at my local supermarket for about four bucks a bag). Taking RS is supposed to sustain and nourish your gut flora which is especially essential for those of us who've had to take antibiotics on various occasions which wipes out the gut flora, leading to all sorts of gastrointestinal issues. (An excellent source of information on the topic is the Mark's Daily Apple website.)

Anyway, I take 2 tablespoons of this mixed in about 8oz of cold water, twice a day...it helps me feel full on my low-carb, high-fat diet and has had a host of other positive effects: more energy, deeper sleep, more regular and (believe it or not) almost odorless BMs. The key is to stir as soon as the stuff hits the water, or else it will coagulate and be harder to dissolve. It has very little taste, so is easy to chug down. Everyone's body is different, so it might be wise to begin with just one serving per day and work up to two.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading prebiotic supplements: Prebiotin, Oligo30, Tino, Natural Stacks Prebiotic+, Bob’s Red Mill Potato Starch, Jarrow Inulin FOS, Now Inulin, PerfectPass Prebiotic, Swanson Ultra Inulin, and Heather’s Acacia Senegal Tummy Fiber.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROBIOTIC AND PREBIOTIC?

We all know about the pros of probiotics. But prebiotics may be more important.

PRO-biotics are friendly bacteria that live on and in our bodies, especially our gut.

PRE-biotics are not bacteria. Prebiotics are a special kind of fiber that the beneficial bacteria eat as food. Prebiotics are a food source for good bacteria.

Prebiotic fibers are found naturally in many vegetables, tubers, nuts, seeds, and fruits. They are found in artichokes, onions, beans, leeks, chicory root, and raw green bananas, dandelion greens, etc. Humans do not digest these fibers. They can only be digested by bacteria. Most prebiotics are fibers, but not all fibers are prebiotics.

Prebiotics are so important that about 20% of breast milk solids are prebiotics that infants cannot digest. There are several types of prebiotics in breast milk and the sole purpose is to feed the friendly gut bacteria in newborns.

Without prebiotic fibers, most of our gut flora will starve. With a steady dose of prebiotic fibers, the number and variety of good bacteria in our guts will dramatically and rapidly increase.

The good bacteria convert prebiotic fibers into several healthy nutrients and begin to strongly influence many aspects our health.

BENEFITS OF PREBIOTICS

When you consume generous amounts of prebiotic fiber:
• The good bacteria will begin to overpower the undesirable ones.

This is bland tasting, mildly gritty. I use a few tablespoons at a time, bedtime and morning. I put it in water or tea, sometimes sprinkled into hot cereal, sometimes blended into a smoothie. Very useful for resistant starch. The stories held true for me. I use this and also plaintain flour with very good results. First uses produced epic gassiness (in the best possible way).Thereafter, no such drama. I use several types of probiotics along with this.

Thanks to Jacques Pepin, I have become aware of the differences between starch thickeners in my cooking. Flour roux makes a very opaque sauce. Cornstarch makes a semi-opaque sauce that can easily get kinda gelatinous. But potato starch makes a delicate, transparent sauce that never gets as thick as Chinese sauces. It is a must for affordable gourmet home cooking! Bob's Red Mill products are always high quality and dependable, and this package size is perfect for the home cooking hobbyist - it will last a while but not forever.

I bought this because my friend is allergic to cornstarch, but I wanted to be able to thicken sauces for many of my recipes. This was a great substitute for cornstarch and worked exactly the same, except now my friend can eat with me. Make sure to refrigerate it after the first use.

Chinese chefs use a emulsified mixture of potato starch and water for stir fries, added at the very end of cooking to thicken the soy-sauce based gravy. That is how I use this stuff, and it does not disappoint. Corn starch mixed with water does the same thing, but potato starch is just a little glossier, so long as you don't let it boil. I'm not sure that it was worth the cost, but I've been very happy with the product.

When this product arrived, it was poorly packages (sort of cardboard folded around the bag, with big gaps at the corners. Puffs of white powder were leaking out as I carried the ... cardboard envelope to the kitchen and set it down. Once I opened the packaging, I discovered a significant enough hole in the bottom corner that the puffs became little clouds.
Uncomfortable with consuming an exposed food item, I contacted Amazon and they of course instantly refunded my order.

As I was getting ready to toss the bag, I realized, the hole was not simply an unfortunate result of shipping / poor packaging.
This bag had been TAPED closed at the bottom. Not some sort of industrial sealing sort of special tape. Regular old office / school / home use Scotch-type tape. Not trying to be overly dramatic, but that's somewhat horrifying. Who knows what might have actually been in the bag?

Needless to say, I will be on the lookout to ensure I am not purchasing any future products from Etailz, regardless of whether it is fulfilled by Amazon.

So, to those of you looking for an actual review of the product, I do apologize. I'll update as soon as I obtain a consumable version!
