There is more than one product out there to use. I added Metamucil, (I mix it with water) I did not see any gluten sources listed in the ingredients. If the fibersure has no wheat sources try it in your recipes.

My other sources of fiber,,fresh pineapple, and I add a few precooked beans to my homemade soups or have a side of baked beans with my meal.

Personally, I like shredded coconut. Though I started using that as a source of lauric acid, it is indeed a source of fiber (I don't know how the percentage compares to other sources). Thus far it has added a wonderful taste to every meal I've put it in (every meal of every day :)). Of course, I really like coconut quite a bit. For those who don't, I suppose there are plenty of nuts and seeds which can provide the desired fiber content. Lots of fruits and veggies offer an abundance of fiber though, and popcorn has loads of fiber from what I can tell from the nutrition labels. Whole grains are good sources too. With all the veggies and grains I eat, I've never seen the need to increase my fiber intake, so I haven't searched out the foods which are particularly high in fiber. Sometimes I wonder if I get too much.

Ground flaxseeds are good for you and are supposed to be the healthiest fiber. I try them, but I am not sure how much they agree with me. SOmetimes they just make me more bloated. I have used Citrucel and it is a gentle fiber and bulking fiber. It works well, but gets old. I haven't tried the one's you mentioned, sorry.
