The recommended daily fiber intake is 25 grams per day, most Americans get only 15 grams per day. Fiber Food provides 10 grams of fiber to help you meet your daily goals. Supplementing your diet with fiber can help with short-term concerns such as occasional constipation, while also promoting bowel health and regularity long term. Fiber Food pulls fiber from plant sources ranging from rice bran to psyllium seed husks; the combination helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels while helping the digestive system work with steady regularity.
My husband has been taking Metamucil for years, as he likes the way it regulates his digestive system. I don't really like it because it contains artificial sweeteners, which I think aggravates anyone's digestive system. This Fiber Food has all-natural ingredients, and there's no cane sugar or artificial sweeteners included.
The ingredients are all clearly listed, and the mild flavor and sweetener are derived from the fruit that's included as the last three ingredients: figs, apple pectin, and prunes. He finds it easy to mix with water to drink, and it also does a good job at keeping him regular, like he wants to be. He has also added it to his plain oatmeal in the morning, and he likes that even better! It's a great all-natural product that works and tastes great!
This fiber is effective and works as expected. It blends easily into smoothies and doesn't overpower whatever else I add to my smoothie that day. It is well made and arrived safely packaged. A great fiber supplement option.
I recall reading once that the average person consumes less than half the daily recommended quantity of fiber. Fiber is often considered for regularity. It can also help with weight management, creating a sense of a full stomach. But, perhaps more importantly, it can help regulate blood sugar. Fiber acts like a sponge, and can slow the digestion and absorption of carbs and sugars, thus helping manage and maintain blood sugar within a healthy range. I actually add psyllium husk powder to coffee every morning.
This fiber supplement has a proprietary blend, with psyllium seed powder as the first listed ingredient (thus, the highest quantity in the blend). I do like that the blend includes flaxseed powder, apple pectin, fig and prune. Flaxseed offers omega-3 fats, lignans and fiber. I do feel that $24 for 15 servings of fiber to be rather pricey.
Based on the fiber, quality and aspects of the ingredients, this meets expectations.
Good blend of source fiber; finely powdered, tastes good, blends well.
This is a six-ounce jar of a blended fiber supplement. The finely ground powder is composed of psyllium seed, flaxseed, rice bran, apple pectin, figs, and prunes. The flavor is of apples and cinnamon, and it's a nice, natural flavor that blends in well with oatmeal, a smoothie, or any grain-based meal or blended beverage. The powder was fresh and blends easily. Priced at about $24 at the time of our review, this is a good value for 15 servings of healthful fiber supplement in powdered form. We like and recommend this fiber food and will be repeat customers.
