BCI is excited to offer our new Resistant Tapioca Starch (RS4)! This RS4 allows you to meet your low net-carb targets, while providing excellent functionality and mouthfeel to your products.

Tapioca is a starch taken from the tuber, or root vegetable, of the cassava plant. The “resistant” part means this ingredient has been modified to function like a soluble fiber, which is resistant to digestion. It is not processed by the stomach and small intestine, instead, it passes through to the large intestine, where it gets fermented as a prebiotic to feed the good bacteria in your gut. Resistant Tapioca Starch added to your low carb diet can help supercharge your body with gut-friendly, anti-inflammatory, and glycemic benefits. Additional health benefits are:

  • Improved insulin resistance
  • Healthy weight loss
  • Improved gut health
  • Lower risk of disease
