The Digestible and Resistant Starch Assay Kit (K-DSTRS) method is based on the research of Englyst et al. (Ref) with some modifications. Digestion is performed using saturating levels of pancreatic α-amylase (PAA) and amyloglucosidase (AMG), but in stirred containers rather than shaken tubes, to simplify sample removal.

In line with Englyst definitions:

Rapidly digestible starch (RDS) is that starch which is digested within 20 min.

Slowly digestible starch (SDS) is that starch which is digested between 20 and 120 min.

A new term, ‘Total digestible starch (TDS)’ is introduced (and measured) to cover all starch that is digested within 4 h (the average time of residence of food in the human small intestine).

Resistant starch (RS) then, is that starch which is not digested within 4 h.

The incubation conditions parallel those used in AOAC Method 2017.16, a new, rapid integrated procedure for the measurement of total dietary fiber (Megazyme method K-RINTDF). This method is physiologically based and designed to fit the definition of DF announced by Codex Alimentarius in 2009.
