    technically yes, i guess, but not for long i would have thought...


    let's say 2tbl of pstarch is 24 grams (as per brm label), approx ~80% of that is RS.

    so say the other ~20% is just starch, so that would be 4.8 grams x 4 cals = 19.2 cals from carbs (will convert to glucose).


    and the 19.2 grams of RS will eventually get converted to fat (mostly butyric acid i think) by bacteria in the intestines.

    so there are some more cals there. tho i have have no idea how much fat would actually be created.

    fake it till you make it
