Description

Psyllium is known for its unique fiber composition of one-third insoluble and two-thirds soluble fractions, making it a versatile fiber source known for its functionality and nutritional properties.

The per-ounce content of psyllium husk fiber is higher than that of oat bran, wheat, or flax seed. Soluble fiber has been shown to improve overall health by helping to prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes

Psyllium is used in various food and beverage applications, mainly because it is a source of dietary fiber, but also because of its texture/ mouthfeel improvement and water binding ability.

Additionally, Psyllium provides benefits in gluten free applications, and it can be used as an ingredient for all natural and GMO-free products.
