"Now, a multidisciplinary team of plant geneticists, agronomists and human nutritionists have developed a wheat variety with markedly altered starch qualities - it is high in amylose, a particular type of starch which is less resistant to digestion and, as a consequence, the resistant starch content of this wheat is increased greatly."..
