Psyllium husks.

Postby Shalimar » Fri May 01, 2009 12:14 pm

Hi all, I snared myself a bag of psyllium husk today as I have decided I need more of a fibre boost.
I have decided to add it to smoothies, cereals and yoghurt.
I was just wondering if anyone else here uses it and what do you add it to?

Thanks, Sue.

Weird I was just typing Psyllium Husks into a post just before I read this thread (I spelt it wrongly though ! :) :lol:

In addition to the places you mentioned I also throw a few tablespoons into the following and haven't ever noticed them :

Pasta Sauces
Cake / Muffin mixes (with the baked goods start off with a tablespoon and then increase per trial and error as they soak up a bit of moisture)
Soups - (I've hidden cupfuls :P )
Casseroles
Pudding type desserts

Pretty much anything that's a bit gluggy takes the husks surprisingly well.

If your not already onto it LSA is another similar product that's a great "sprinkle" thing. it's Linseed, Sunflower and Almond meal and full of all the omega's. A little harder to hide taste wise but very very good for you.

Thanks for that Karnak, I figured it would go well in any cereal, particularly porridge.
I also ground it up a bit more (I have a coffee/spice grinder) to make it a bit finer and hopefully a little easier to disperse.
I was checking out the lsa, so I might put that on next weeks shopping list.
I'm making cauli soup tomorrow so I'll whack some in there as I am the only one that eats it :lol: .

Thanks again :D .

Hi Sue,

With the LSA - just make sure you store it in the fridge and if you can, go halves with a friend. Over the weekend I noticed that mine was a bit on the nose. It's 4 months old and while the bag seems to be an endless supply of LSA, I guess like nuts it goes off fairly quickly.

Just a heads up

Regards

Nikki

I'd recommend cooking them into all sorts of muffins, and maybe cakes and breads as well. I might be tempted to buy some - what a good source for these?
