An insoluble resistant starch product produced from a native ungelatinized, unhydrolyzed insoluble starch, wherein said product exhibits a pasting temperature and a peak viscosity that are within 25% of that exhibited by the native starch, wherein said product contains a higher percentage of starch molecules that are resistant to alpha-amylase digestion as compared to the native starch, wherein said product displays a resistant starch temperature peak from about 116° C. to about 125° C. in a heating profile as measured by differential scanning calorimetry, wherein said product has from about three-fold to about twelve-fold increase in the percentage of starch molecules that are resistant to alpha-amylase digestion as compared to the native starch.
