I ran into some information on SCFA's (Short Chain Fatty Acids) and resistant starch on the whfoods site. Then found this on Wikipedia.

Resistant starch can act as a replacement for wheat products in foods that are required to be gluten-free. Recent scientific studies suggest that resistant starch's fermentation within the colon may be important because it produces more butyrate than other fibers tested. Butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid, has been shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties and anti-inflammatory properties, which may be useful for preventing and/or treating Celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease.

See the links given above for more info. I think this is very interesting.
