psyllium husk ground
this is the fine powder that turns into a viscous liquid when mixed with water after ~60 seconds stirring. I like it this way, some may not. It is somewhat distasteful slurping it down, but you know what you are putting in yourself and you know you have done it with enough water so as not to cause problems. The coarser blends take too long to absorb water, so you may underhydrate when taking them. I follow this with some plain yogurt as the psyllium husk makes ideal environment for beneficial organism growth environment as it passes through the plumbing.

I was happy to find this product which is just as effective as a much higher priced psyllium that I was using. Gave it a 4 on value since it was not organic, but Swanson does offer an organic psyllium.

Mixes well with a blender
This product is a great value and excellent quality. It mixes exceedingly well with a blender. I have used a variety of teas which work well for blending with the powder. For those who don't have a blender and dislike the clumps created when the psyillum comes in contact with liquid, get the capsule form.

A Great Fiber Source
I have used this helpful product for several years now. It is well-priced and effective, an excellent source of fiber and aid to regularity. i use it along with Garden of Life's Super Seed once a day in water or juice.

Natural & Simple
Only psyllium, no additives like sugar or flavoring. This is the way it should be used.

Use for baking gluten free
I use this in gluten free baking instead of xanthan gum. It gives better results, adds fiber and improves texture of baked goods. It is recommended for use in recipes in America's Test Kitchen's "How Can It Be Gluten Free". The price for this psyllium is excellent.

Does not mix well
I thought I'd try this since there are no added artificial colors, unlike Metamucil. I normally add Metamucil to a glass of water and mix with a spoon, no problem. This Swanson psyllium husk does not mix well with just a spoon. The fiber clumps. I will not be buying again.

I have used this for years in place of any name brand or even store brand psyllium. I think it works as well but at a much better price.

Swanson psyllium husk powder
I used a different brand for years but switched to Swanson's to save money. Have to shake vigorously to blend but it does the job! Only gave 4 stars for satisfaction because it just comes in 12 ounce plastic jars instead of bigger bags, so I end up with lots of little jars. It's a good thing they are recyclable.

This powder, even though all fiber, makes amazing carb free wraps when added to egg whites plus seasoning. Delicious, sturdy wraps, so glad to have this product.

I put this in my protein shake every morning and it keeps me going all day.

This stuff is the best quality psyllium we have used,even bulk psyllium from "health food stores" and it puts "Orange Fiber" to shame. We make sure we never run out.

Does not dissolve well
This psyllium is the best bargain, but it is too finely ground and it does not dissolve well in most liquids - maybe warm or hot. I have tried cold drinks, acidic drinks, milk, and etc. It takes forever to stir and then it isn't well mixed after one minute. I just end up putting one-half teaspoon in my yogurt which works well. I'll try another brand next time.

NOT WHOLE HUSKS
When the product is called " husks" I expected whole husks, not powder. Rename it "Whole Husk Powder" I would send it back, but postage is more than the product.

I like that this product has no flavor of it's own and mixes easily with juice. The price is reasonable and I was pleased with how quickly I noticed results.

Great basic psyllium husk
This is a great product for a good price. I would prefer an organic option.

I have used Psyllium Husks for decades. I have always found that the Whole Psyllium Husks work best at scrubbing the walls of the colon for optimum detoxification. Psyllium is, after all, an insoluble fiber. Personally, I do not like this powder form of psyllium husks as well as the Whole Psyllium Husks, which I also buy from Swanson in the NOW brand.

Makes great veggie burgers
I am a vegetarian and enjoy making my own homemade veggie burgers. However, I've had problems with them falling apart as I cook them. I decided to try adding psyllium husks and found that it's not only a good way to increase the fiber in my diet, it also helps those veggie burgers stick together!

An essential product for the getting older set. Keeps things moving without artificial anything.

Won't do without Psyillium again
My wife and I have been using Psyillium Husks for several months now and from the results we are having we won't start a day without it on our morning cereal.

Great product, great price, Swansons is the best, an essential part of my daily routine.

I mix a heaping teaspoon into my breakfast drink every morning to keep my bowels regular. Since starting this over two years ago I've been feeling a lot better.
