Resistant Starch was a ONE project run by the University of Leuven in Belgium.

The aim of the project was to produce foods with starch that has been transformed so that it is digested more slowly
but now is.

Transformation takes place, among other things, with enzymes that Matís has developed and produces.

Slightly digested starch is suitable for those with diabetes or obesity.
