Cooled and reheated pasta has a surprising health advantage over freshly cooked pasta.

Dietitian Karen Inge told 3AW’s Dee Dee reheating pasta changes its structure.

“It’s higher in resistant starch,” she said.

“(It’s) a type of starch which resists digestion and ferments in the gut and produces acids which are very protective against bowel cancer and other gut disorders.

“If you let it cool … and you reheat it, it actually becomes higher in this resistant starch.

“It’s the same with potato, and it’s the same with rice.”
