Fiber (Metamucil, Heather's Tummy, Etc)
Posted 10 October 2012 - 05:45 AM
Yesterday, hubby brought home some Metamucil capsules labeled as "Gluten-Free" but the gluten-free has an asterisk footnote *less than 20ppm. I have had reactions to these trace amounts in the past.
Online, I found some products: 1) Heather's Tummy acacia fiber 2) Now brand psyllium with apple pectin - Does anyone have experience with these?
Also, are there other recommendations? Is anyone using Metamucil caps or any other brand successfully?

Really though, as recommendations. Instead of a supplement with apple pectin, why not a little cottage cheese with ground flax seed and an apple with it's peel still on? Whole fruits are a great fiber source. There are plenty of fiber sources for us without adding expensive and unnecessary supplements.

I'm specifically looking for capsules or other dissolve-able powders that have good portability and convenience for those times when an occasional apple and leafy greens are not enough.
