In recent years, we've come to realise that a healthy gut is pivotal to a healthy metabolism, a healthy brain and a healthy immune system.

The explosion of scientific research in this field - with CSIRO at the forefront - has also led to the discovery that feeding our gut bacteria with a particular type of fermentable fibre called resistant starch is a major piece in the gut health puzzle.

This book provides information on how the gut functions and what can go wrong, along with a collection of recipes specifically developed to be high in fibre and resistant starch.

Written by a team of experienced CSIRO researchers, including nutritional scientists and dietitians, many of whom are internationally recognised authorities in nutrition and gut health, this book contains simple, practical advice and a wide range of tasty, easy-to-make recipes designed to benefit the gut and overall health.
