I made the stove top mac n cheese with the Mueller's gluten free elbow noodles and everyone loved it.  (even a gluten eater teen age boy!)

It makes sense that psyllium can create the binding texture, but the possible gut issues!!?  Some one on the board made the dinner rolls and raved about them and the cookbook. 


The ripping on the different products wasn't quite fair, some breads without other allergen ingredients are needed for people.  Comparing a dairy free, egg free bread to other breads is going to lack some of the taste and texture.  Companies are always always improving too.

I just got the America's Test Kitchen How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook.  It has recipe's calling for the use of Powdered psyllium husk.  Does anyone have experience with using these recipes?  A strong preference for particular brand of psyllium husk?  The cookbook has Now brand pictured.


The cookbook has it's own flour blend recipe, but seems to strongly use Bob's Red Mill flour blend with the warning about bean flour taste, and pictures this brand throughout the ingredients area.  I have to admit I hate bean flour substitutions, and I am really turned off about some of the other product reviews in the book. 


I am almost tempted to return the book, but I do want to see the difference of trying psyllium husk for pizza dough.  Just want to know what kind of effect does this have on the gut when psyllium husk is used in laxative type products?

Thank you for posting the picture and the ingredients.


It's much better to find out at home if the product has another ingredient that makes it off limits for your household.  I would have wanted to cry at the store.

Unfortunately a lot of disorders can present with these symptoms. 
Did you get any pictures of the inflammation from the endoscopy?  Or tell us what the descriptive terms of the inflammation and where noted.


H. Ployri. test result?

eosinophil count?
