Psyllium is a true dietary fiber, even though it is classified by some as a laxative or mucilaginous fiber, and is a convenient way to increase intake of dietary fiber because of its high mucilage content.
This bulking agent swells considerably when added to liquid, which can help to support healthy gastrointestinal transit time. This bulking action and healthy transit time can play an important role in maintaining healthy gastrointestinal function.

I use it to make my own crackers, or "knekkebrød" as we call them in scandinavia. I use 1/2 a cup each of almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds with two tablespoons of the husk powder and a big pinch of salt. Grind in magic bullet or food processor. Mix well with 2 cups of water and let soak for about 15 mins. This is enough for two trays. Use parchment paper on tray and use wet (so it doesn't stick) fingers to flatten. Put in middle of oven for about an hour @ 210 f or 100c.
this powder is pretty finely ground so it's easy to just mix it in with any drink, nice fine texture is easily blended. great value, good stuff. only complaint is package is not re-sealable so it's best to put it in another container that can be closed.

I went to buy some plain Psyllium Husk at Walmart and could only find the flavored stuff with sweeteners in it (yuck!). I add it to smoothies for fiber, so I don't want that extra garbage in it. I came here and found this at a much better price than at Walmart and it's not full of artificial flavors and sweeteners. This is just plain old fiber. You can mix it with juice, sprinkle it on cereal, what ever. It is tasteless.

I was looking for a fiber supplement without added sugar and high carb fillers. This is easy to take with lots of water and does its job!
I dont like it

Taste is very good. Can use about everywhere. Will buy again definitely.
No more constipation or hard stools.

I mix two tablespoons of this with my oatmeal each day, and I've never been more regular. Stools are softened drastically, no fuss around it. Just don't consume too much of it, as it may cause bloating and your stools maybe too "stringy". I loathe the taste of this, so I'll be moving on to Acacia, which I've heard is tasteless. Good price and quality for this product, though.
