Could this food supplement help us tolerate starch?

Would combining it with lactase allow me to enjoy a few pieces of pizza

Does anyone have thoughts on this?

Sorry, Robin_H:

I wish it were that easy! Not only with this preparation likely cause a flare, but it will not prevent the starches from being a substrate for our nemesis bacterium. In fact it could make matters even worse.

It is fun to experiment and dream...but I would not bet on this horse.

HEALTH,
John

On a related note, I don't know if I mentioned this in any other thread, buy my experiment with resistant starch in glutenous rice failed. It did not create intense spikes in pain but it took the "cool" out of me.

Arggg. I literally just found out about glutenous rice today. Was hoping for something filling that didn't cause problems. I'll still give it a shot, but if I even look at regular rice I get all sorts of trouble.

If you live with a number of people you can try making glutenous rice pancakes on one day a week and share the pot with everyone so that you have no leftovers.

I am a bachelor that hates to waste and so I cooked a pot that probably provided more than just breakfast. I was enjoying them in large quantities all by themselves for three or four mornings in a row.

So perhaps a resistant starch can be enjoyed as a BIG TREAT once a week without overdoing it.

So good luck!

May the starch be with you!

I am going to try my suggestion myself by going out for just one bowl of hot and dry noodles as a morning breakfast on Saturday mornings only.

The pain and inflammation flare wont have time to build the intensity as it would if I ate three bowls in the morning four days in a row. Cooking starchy meals at home provides too much opportunity to cheat -- I'm addicted to chocolate, coffee and nuts, and starch is just a cheap substitute.
