Take note from the majority of the most recent reviews - this product used to be good as is now rubbish. I've seen some people say "its the exact same product just in a fine powder form" well that hasn't changed the fact that it has made a huge difference to its effectiveness for me personally. I used to use it to increase my fiber and help in the toilet with my IBS and it was a miracle worker - this stuff hasn't done a thing for me. I've tried different amounts over the weeks (from 10gs a day right up to 25gs a day) and experienced no difference. The real kick in the teeth is it tastes even worse than before! I can deal with horrible tasting supplements if they work, this is going in the bin. Now I'm off to find a good deal on some whole psyllium husks that actually work!!!Goes Well With:Nothing. Seriously. Ruins any drink or food its mixed with.
I have IBS and have been struggling with really bad constipation and abdominal pain. I've tried Psylium Husk from elsewhere and it didn't help but this stuff has been amazing and has allowed me to live a normal life. I only go to the toilet once a day now for a few minutes rather than spending a half an hour a time 3 to 4 times day it has been such a relief. Don't care if it's powder and not whole, it does the job. Don't worry about it not mixing or the taste. In my experience Psylium husk doesn't mix or taste nice you just add it to a glass of water as part of the dosage, stir and down it quickly.. Goes Well With:water
This stuff is a pain! Doesn't mix in hot liquid! Goes gloopy. I stir for quite a while, kneading the gloop into th herbal tea.....little progress. How do people manage to stop this from clumping? Is there anything that this can be mixed with to make it drinkable?Goes Well With:You tell me?
I have been buying psylium for a while and it has changed recently to a finely ground powder which doent seem to do any thing and tastes awful.
I use to be a regular user of this product for a long time and it use to have a good texture. The fibres were not too fine. However, now they are finely ground like sand or powder which makes them difficult to mix and have a bad texture. I hope you go back to your previous method of grinding them.
I have used WHOLE psyllium husk for a few years, but am very disappointed with the powdered husks. It tastes different and certainly does not mix as well as the original whole psyllium husks. I am now buying the WHOLE husks from another supplier online at a higher cost. I am hoping that myprotein start selling the original product again, and if they do I shall return as a customer for the product. Very disappointed. Melvin (Rotherham)Goes Well With:It does NOT go well with anything , and I will be throwing it away. (Age range-I am older than the age range options provided below)
As previous reviewers, why change a good product for something that doesn't mix, tastes really poor and difficult to swallow. Would not recommend this product to anyone.
I have bought this product several times. Unfortunately, it seems that the product vaires from batch to batch. Sometimes the product looks like small dry shells of the seeds, other times it looks like finely ground flour. The problem is that I have experienced varying effect of the product, it is a really great source of fiber and has a great effect on gastro-intestinal health. But this effect is most pronounced for the whole seeds, I have noticed significantly less effect when I recieved the finely gound flour, even though i took the same weight of product each day. And sadly for me, the altest product I recieved was the finely ground flour variety... Bummer!Goes Well With:Oatmeal in the morning
Fantastic Natural product, love and use it every day to cean and support my gut. Love it but follow advice and instructions. Thank you
The whole Psyllium Husks were excellent fibre, easy to mix with water and bareable to drink. Without warning I ordered what I believed to be whole Psyllium Husks and was rewarded with a powdered Psyllium Husk. This was unpleasant and I am not convinced it has the same fibre content and the whole husks.
This bag of psyllium husks is a very fine powder, compare to the previous bag which was seed. However just the size of the bag was different. I still wonder what supposed to be in the bag. Powder or seeds? It is easy to mix with any liquid but if u leave it for too long, its easily become like a thick pudding in your shaker bottle or even thicker. I personally use this to keep my hunger down and survive until I can have my lunch. Helps to avoid eating unneccessary sugary things that you crave for when your blood sugar drops. Plus keeps u regular ☺️Goes Well With:Whey protein
Very disappointed with my latest purchase. Although the listing at the time, and the packet itself, says 'Whole Psyllium Husks', what I received was something resembling a fine brown dust. I left a review years ago saying what an excellent product it was, how it mixed well, and in OJ it was was like OJ with juicy bits. This is nothing like that; it doesn't mix well, and if you mash the lumps they are just a slimy paste. I see the name has since changed on the site to 'Powdered Psyllium Husks', and I wouldn't have bought it if I'd known that's what I was getting.
I've been using this for a few weeks, and ran out because I've been waiting over a month for a new package to be delivered. I've bought some Psyllium in a local health food shops and what a difference. The local stuff mixes well, tastes better and is much more effective - almost makes me glad Myprotein hasn't delivered on their promise to send me what I've paid for. Won't be buying from them again.
As has already been mentioned on this review page, the results are of the taste and texture of wall paper paste. I thought this would have been ideal to add to porridge but following mixing you can literally peel your porridge from the bowl in one big dollup, similar to the slime toy that kids from the 1980's will remember fondly playing with. Grim.Goes Well With:To be found.
Excellent fast service.the flavors weve tried so far are all nice banana summerfruits and choc orange.defo reccomendwe are using it as meal replacements and its working a treat
I bought Powdered Psyllium Husks not just to help me get more fibre in my diet which if it was for that reason alone is a good thing as in this day in and age getting enough good fibre into our diet can be hard with all the processed food alot of us consume for a quick fix to feed our bodies through out the day. But I also bought powdered Psyllium Husks to help me feel fuller through out the day to help me from feeling hungry and going for a quick fix of chocolate bars or crisp and the processed carbohydrates between meals. Does it work for this reason? Yes I find it does the job of not making me hungry through the day and to stop the sugar cravings so I won't go for the quick fix junk food options. The fibre side to Psyllium Husks product, well were told by the health officials that where not consuming enough fibre in our diets now a days which I believe is true but how do we know? to be honest I do not but what I found since using powdered Psyllium Husks is that my bowel movements (sorry to gross any one out) are regular as clock work so to say and my stools have the same consistancy (no hard stools or too runner stools) comfortable when passing. How I use it? First thing in the morning on rising I mix one desert spoon with one pint glass of water and consume straight away I do not leave to stand as the fibre will solidify fast which is not recommended when in this state as it can stick in your throat so drink it down fast once stirred. This way it keeps me full through out the day. I've found the Myprotein Powdered Psyllium Husks product is a excellent product for the quality (easy to mix) and for the price they charge for this quality product as a lot of other companies will price the product as much as two to three times this for a good quality powdered psyllium husks product . Goes Well With:Any one starting a low calorie diet to lose weight as it stops them from feeling hungry through the day.
I bought psyllium husks to mix with pea protein, to make a protein pizza base. It worked well, and still plenty left to make more.
It's hard to get excited about powdered Psyllium Husks. On it's own has the texture of fine sawdust. However it's a cheap, natural source of fibre, with little or no taste of its own. Since going on a diet to lose weight, I've suffered a little from bowel movement irregularity, and while I have added extra fruit and vegetable to my diet they is only so much I can do. I thought I would try adding a little of this every day to get things moving more regularly. I add it to oat bran for breakfast, which makes for a pretty sticky porridge, but it goes down if you add cinnamon or something with flavour and eat it before it sets! It's a lot better with a chopped banana in a milk and yoghurt shake, where it doesn't distort the texture or flavour too much. Since adding it too my diet I've been more regular, which is good with no bowel problems associated with adding fibre to your diet - but I did increase the amount gradually over a week.Goes Well With:Banana/yoghurt/milk in a shake. Blitz and drink. You can use Soya milk and soya yoghurt if you don't want cows milk - it works okay too. Make sure you have plenty of liquid or it will form a sticky gel.
I am a huge fan of adding Psyllium husks to shakes. I have used the old 'whole husks' and the newer 'powder'. Some of the reviewers below seem to be confused as to the difference between husks and powder. The powder is made by grinding the husks down so that the gel produced is finer and has less of a grainy texture. If you are adding psyllium to a shaker, or mix your protein with a spoon, the powder may be a better choice because of its finer texture. If, like me you, mix in a blender, then it all gets turned to fine stuff anyway. Both forms of psyllium will provide the same health benefits (e.g. increase your daily fibre intake, help to make you feel more full post shake when dieting/cutting, help with the loo etc).Goes Well With:protein powders
Helps with digestion really well, finally fixed my stomach problem that I have had for over 10 years.Goes Well With:Any food e.g. Smoothies, cereal, mixed into meals like pasta or rice
