    Fiber supps


    Can anyone suggest an unflavored powder supp that's inexpensive? Just looking for something I can mix into a protein shake or my bedtime cottage cheese that won't ruin the taste. I'd like to add about 10g fiber/day to my diet. Thanks.

    Isn't that the same stuff they use to test glomular filtration rate in kidney function test. Never really herd it mentioned as a fiber supp. before.

    Now's pysllium husk powder(extract not whole) is pretty good although it's kinda grainy if you drink it immediately, thickens the shake up a lot to.

    The only thing that I'm aware of that is FLAVOR FREE is not really cheap=Benefiber.

    I just use WalMart's generic orange flavored fiber and mix it in with various flavors of Crystal Light. I have also capped some bulk fiber, but that turned into a pill popping nightmare.

    Yeah, Benefiber is great. It really is taste-free and chalk-free to the point where you can mix it with straight water and not really taste it.

    FWIIW, I just read that they added an additional 40% more product per container for no extra charge.

    And since I have some of you fiber junkies' attention...When I eat a cheat meal that is high GI (sugar) I like to add some fiber to it to slow digestion some. Does anybody know how much fiber I would actually have to take to make a difference. Let's say I ate about a cup of ice cream...I can't find anything quantitive on fiber in this manner. I just know that it will slow digestion down some...Just wondering.

    ice cream is already low glycemic due to the fat and lactose

    LOL, don't tell me that...Okay, bad example...hmm, I can't really think of anything that I eat that is high GI...I was just trying to test out a theory. Oh well, thanks.

    Anymore comments on cheap, flavor free fiber?

    not sure your stance on stevia but sweet leaf makes a stevia/inulin sweetener. not only does it contain fiber (500mg per packet or 1/4 tsp) but it also adds flavor/sweetness. its good stuff but i know some people dont like stevia.
