Question Insoluble fiber

Hi,
Can anyone tell me the brand name of a product that is 100% insoluble fiber. I want to take a Tbsp in water daily.

Is this the same as Metamucil or something?


Thanks in advance for responses.

God bless.

Re: Insoluble fiber

I have been taking Benefiber. It is tasteless and grittless and you can put it in drinks or food.

Re: Insoluble fiber

The closest pure insoluble fiber that is on the market is wheat bran!!! You can buy it at most health food stores.

Insoluble fiber is contained in all veggies and fruit, nuts, seeds. It is food that does not absorbs or dissolve or absorb water.
All green leafy veggies absorb no water, broccoli, aparagus, cauliflower, green beans, brussel spouts, cabbage and the list goes on--
Fruit like apples, pears, bananas, peaches, all contain fluid but absorb very little fluid. And the peelings absorbs none.
Nuts and seeds don't absorb fluid.
The husks on beans & peas are insoluble.

Re: Insoluble fiber

Harry,

I think you previously posted some good information on Probiotics, which I can no longer find. Would you mind reposting your recommendation? Thank you, Sereena
