Resistant Starch Content of Foods[edit]

This table uses such different measures as to be useless. 1 cup of cooked oats vs 1/2 cup of pearl barley? Or a 1/2" diameter potato - is this serious? Please can this be revised by someone who has access to meaningful data. Stub Mandrel (talk) 12:54, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

With the exception of the entry on cold potato, these are standard serving sizes for these foods, derived from U.S. Department of Agriculture database. It is possible to go the the USDA database and find nutrient content for the same weight of foods, i.e., per 100 grams, but nutritionists prefer to work with real serving size.David notMD (talk) 15:39, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
