If you love potato salad in the summer, but you're afraid it will send your blood sugar through the roof, here is news from RealAge on
the subject. By chilling the potatoes overnight they form "resistant starch crystals." Studies have
shown that by chilling the potatoes overnight (and serving with vinegar) they form "resistant starch crystals," thus reducing the high glycaemic and insulinaemic features commonly associated with potato meals. And resistant starch helps the body incinerate
more fat for fuel while making less fat available to stash away in fat cells. So enjoy your potato salad, as long as you avoid those mayonnaise dressings.
