A consistently good functioning elimination system is elusive. It seems to adapt to whatever one tries.
For fiber, mornings I take:
1/8 level cup Arrowhead Mills Organic Rye Flour from Swanson
2 level teaspoons Nutricology Dietary Cellulose Powder
6 of the 300 mg capsules of Swanson Apple Pectin
A study found that rye bread speeds the transit time, so I take rye flour.
The cellulose powder is good in that it doesn't seem to lose it's effect or wear off like psyllium, although a level tablespoon of Yerba Prima psyllium whole husks is good for occasional temporary one-day use. I soak the psyllium husks in my mouth with water for 5 minutes or so before washing them down with more water.
The apple pectin is unique in it's effect to coagulate, thicken, congeal and jell everything, forming a definable ball out of everything.
I try and drink two 12 oz glasses of Juicy Juice bottled fruit juice per day with meals or mainly with lunch.
I also seem to need to eat enough during the day to provide the volume to keep everything moving.
Soaked overnight, a large bowl of granola bars and a little quick oats with dried fruit like 5 or 6 prunes, raisins, dried apricots, dried pears, etc. is a good breakfast for providing bulk occasionally.
This is a great price for any fiber at $6.09 for the 8.8 oz can.

I expected more "results". Should be a good source of insoluble fiber, but I did not see that. Tastes bad by itself, so be sure to mix it with something else.

I add this to microwave flax muffins to increase the fiber. It increases the muffin's fiber content 12g, which is 1 tablespoon, without any difference in texture. I don't know what I would do without it. There is no other product like it.

this is just fiber, only net fiber, not a thickener, it got no taste, I used it in my "meatballs/burgers/meatloafs"
and other vegy preps, but now I like it only
in soups, not for texture, not for flavor, just make the soup look
a bit better
