Golden Fields Fiber Powder
I'm used to taking daily powder fibers (usually Swanson's Colon Cleansing Formula) and thought I would try this out. This is by far the nastiest tasting fiber I have ever tried to take. I've tried it in water and different juices and no matter what, the horrible aftertaste gets me every single time. I have to chug it all at once so the aftertaste only hits once, but boy does it hit hard and then I have to eat something to get the disgusting taste out of my mouth. After all the heartache of trying to get it down...it doesn't do much for me. Very disappointed with this product.

This stuff is horrible, there's no way you can use it without getting the terrible taste it has. Very disappointed.

This helps if you want to consume a lot of fiber each day.

I can see the difference
Because I mix this powder inside my protein shakes I don't have a problem with the taste or texture of this product. And although I can feel an effect from taking many of my supplements, this is the only supplement I take that produces an effect I can see.

It's fiber folks - it tastes YUMMY and it can be added to just about anything when I need an extra boost for my innards.
I add it to my morning health shake, applesauce, hot cereals, yogurt, cottage cheese & fruit, vegie dips, butter for whole grain toast and jam & so on. It has a sweet taste, so if you plan on adding it to something savory - gravies and sauces - start with a little at a time.
I use to add it to sweet, jarred baby foods when I was taking care of my elderly parents and they enjoyed it (a great way to add fiber to their diet) .
I'd pay extra if it were organic. But as it is, it is a staple in my kitchen pantry.

Mix with my milk in bottle, shake and pour over Morning Cereal.
Great way to start the day. Swanson always comes through for me

must be a duck
Walks like a duck, talks like a duck, must be a duck.
This product looks like dirt, smells like dirt, and tastes like dirt(my guess). Must be dirt?
Very disappointed. Going back to Benefiber.

Good results ,icky taste
THis is a great product especially when compared to Ortho Moleculars Fiber Plus Powder. OM flavors theirs with apple cinnamon and it's nasty. We tried this fiber which tastes a little better but not too great!! We would describe it as an "industrial" taste! Still a good product with great results.

As I have gotten older, I find it necessary to regulate my bowels and my digestive system. Golden Fields Fiber Powder is cost effective and addresses my needs better than any of the other products I have tried. I have found that if I mix it in orange juice, it affords me good results and provides a satisfactory drink.

I love putting fiber in my smoothies in the morning and before runs and this is my favorite, best value for the money and taste great!

I mix it in carrot juice with Swanson's green foods powder

I have trouble going regularly so decided to add fiber to my diet. This product just didn't work out for me. I tried it in my green juice and salad. This fiber powder soaks up all the moisture so makes everything really thick and yucky. My juice turned into a paste like liquid, and my salad had a bad dressing consistency. It just made me throw away the food.. (I know, what a waste!)

am glad I didn't get the defatted wheat germ. I don't want to take vit .E in a capsule. Better in whole food.
This formula agrees with me. .I mix it in my breakfast shake with all my fravorite fruits, etc for extra fiber and nutrition.

use this every day its great and has no sugar

This was just the product I needed to incorporate into my daily diet. The formula is fine enough that you can virtually put it in any food. I typically add a scoop to my shakes or yogurt. It also helps to keep me regular ;)

Prefer Garden of Life RAW powder. Did not notice a difference while taking this product.

Golden Fields Fiber Powder
I have been taking this product for years now and I like it so much, I buy one year’s worth at a time. Thank you Swanson for changing to a stronger container. The old containers used to break in shipping. Everyone knows why we take fiber and with that said, it works great. I actually take bigger servings than they suggest so I only get 19 servings out of a can. It really is important to drink a lot of water. I always drink 12 ounces with my size serving and afterwards I drink another 12 ounces of water and that usually works perfect.

Great, effective fiber.
This is an excellent and easy way to add the very important fiber into your diet. Just be sure to drink at least 16 oz water when you use a scoop in a drink. More water is better. This is very handy to have around; you can put it into muffins, waffles, etc.

Has both soluble and insoluble fiber in just the right blend for me. I take every morning. Has all three of brans which I think is awesome - wheat, rice, and oat bran. A most excellent product in it's own right, but I go a bit further. I do mix in some Acacia Fiber (Swanson has that too) which complements this fiber nicely. The Acacia fiber is a prebiotic which I believe has been very beneficial for me.

I replaced a very expensive network marketed product with this...this works and tastes far better, and is approx. 10% the price.
You do need to take it easy with it the first few days to let your gut get used to the fiber goodness that is packed into this...

Fiber = Happiness
A big believer in if your gut's not happy, you're not happy either. Love this product! I originally tried it because of it's great range of soluble and insoluble fiber ingredients. I use about half a scoop every day in a fruit smoothie. It has a nutty, oatey flavor and consistency, and it works on your system like good fiber should. Always remember to drink plenty of liquid with it. A great value, too!

First time trying it
Use it in my hot cereal. Like the fact that it has the daily fiber that I need. Did not suffer any "near to the bathroom" effects while using it. Would recommend it to any one!

It is nice to have options when trying to increase your fiber intake. I tire of using the pysilium powder alone. This product blends well with smoothies (gives a creamy oatmeal consistency to very thin whey protein mixes). I find this product to be gentle and effective. The only draw back is it does add a few extra calories to your daily regime.
For those of you who've never tried this kind of fiber mixture it has a thin porage like consistency. Until you get used to the flavor/consistency use a little bit of agave to sweeten it (will taste more like a sweet oatmeal soup) until you adjust. Product offers a good helping of unsoluable fiber ~ kudos! Just remember to drink plenty of water with your fiber supplements ~ Cheers to Health!

Great fiber product...
I do not know any other product that gives you 9 grams of fiber per serving. I mix one scoop in 8 ounces of water 2X a day and drink it. I am now very use to doing that and it gives me 18 grams of fiber a day. With other food that I eat, I am getting about 48 grams of fiber a day. That keeps me very regular and fiber is an important supplement for your health. You should strive for about 40 grams of fiber a day. Swanson offers this product at a good price and it is a good quality product.
