Hi Maize Resistant Starch

More than two decades of research and over 70 human clinical trials have validated the efficacy of HI-MAIZE® resistant starch in helping maintain healthy blood sugar levels and helping balance energy. By formulating with HI-MAIZE® resistant starch, you have the opportunity to tap into this growing consumer demand and add claims to your products, such as: 

  • High-amylose maize resistant starch may reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. FDA has concluded that there is limited scientific evidence for this claim
  • Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels
  • Supports energy balance
  • Promotes digestive health
  • Good source of fiber
  • Excellent source of fiber 

Derived from proprietary high amylose corn hybrids produced through traditional plant breeding, HI-MAIZE® resistant starch contains approximately 60% resistant starch, which is not digested in the small intestine and acts as a dietary fiber. It also contains approximately 40% slowly-digestible starch, which helps provide sustained energy. Because it retains its natural granule structure, it is a Type 2 Resistant Starch (RS2). HI-MAIZE® resistant starch is a clean label ingredient and is non-GMO Project® Verified
