Psyllium Husk - Organic
Psyllium husks promote easy, healthy elimination and sweep waste out of the colon more easily by supplying soluble fibre.
What does psyllium husk do in baking? Psyllium husk is used to retain moisture and help breads from becoming too crumbly. Use to crumb veges, chicken or beef schnitzel.
Substitutes: if your recipe calls for psyllium husk powder and all you have is psyllium husks - then double the amount of husks that you put in. If you are sensitive to psyllium husk, then use Acacia Fibre as an alternative.
Benefits and claims: It's an excellent source of fibre for your digestive system. It increases the bulk in your stool, an effect that helps to cause movement of the intestines. It also works by increasing the amount of water in the stool, making the stool softer and easier to pass. Psyllium, one type of bulk-forming laxative, has also been used along with a proper diet to treat high cholesterol.
