Resistant starch and Prebiotics
According to an August 2013 study in the Food Chemistry Journal, jackfruit seeds are 92.8 to 94.5 percent starch. However, about 30 percent of the starch in jackfruit seeds is made up of resistant starch, which is much healthier than your average carbohydrate.
The Food and Drug Administration explains that there are two main types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is a water-soluble fiber that is broken down when you eat foods that contain it. This type of fiber can help regulate your blood sugar and cholesterol.
Insoluble fiber isn’t broken down, because it passes through your body intact. Insoluble fiber promotes the digestion of foods as they move through your gastrointestinal tract. Both of these types of fiber are essential for good gut health.
Although soluble and insoluble fibers are important, there are other nutrients that can help support your gastrointestinal tract and overall health. Resistant starches are a less well-known type of fiber — specifically, a type of low-viscous fiber. This type of fiber can’t be digested by the small intestine and is slowly processed as it moves along your gastrointestinal tract.
When you consume foods with resistant starches like the ones found in jackfruit seeds, the bacteria that live in your gastrointestinal tract can ferment these starches in your large intestine. When resistant starches are fermented, they produce short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids can help stimulate blood flow in your colon and reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Although resistant starches are less well-known compared to soluble and insoluble fiber, all three of these carbohydrates act as prebiotics. This means that all three of these nutrients can also improve the health of your gut microbiome.
A healthy gut microbiome isn’t just good for your stomach, intestines, and colon; your gut is directly connected to your brain via a cranial nerve known as the vagus nerve. This means that consuming healthy foods like resistant starches can help improve the function of your immune system and prevent diseases that affect your central nervous system too.
