The Starch Queens are all about Starch- What’s with all this talk about Starch not breaking down? High Quality Starch In a culture that has become carbohydrate-phobic, a very important aspect of human biology has been shoved into the shadows. That happens to be our digestive system. We hear a lot about gluten, and too many phytates, and how hard it is for us to break down cellulose. But we digest starch just fine. And this is because we are a part of the animal kingdom that produces the enzyme amylase while we chew. Carnivores do not. Ever hear the term: digestion begins in the mouth? Amylase is the reason. Our pancreas also produces amylase, which helps us to efficiently break down sugars. Our tongue seeks out carbohydrate on purpose. The problem is that we’ve become too fond of processed starch. If you look at the expanse of human dietary history, starches have been central to the diet, whether if be yam or potato, poi, corn, or basmati rice. Even the Paleo crowd has begun to see the light when it comes to traditional vegetable starches. So, if you’re trying to go plant based, but have become convinced that traditional whole starches are to be avoided for some reason, please reconsider. You might be missing out a beneficial fiber source and sound supply of energy.
