Organic Psyllium Husk
Psyllium is a herb that is revered for its impressive dietary fibre content, providing a massive 80% soluble to insoluble fibre compared to other grains that provide mainly the insoluble kind. Psyllium absorbs liquid and expands to a gel-like consistency in our bodies, therefore acting as a natural cleanser and detoxifier. In this way it can help with digestive issues and keeping your gut in tip top shape. To increase your dietary fibre intake and thicken your recipes, add a teaspoon of psyllium husk to smoothies, cereals and baking. Remember that it’s important to drink plenty of water when consuming this herb because of its super strong absorption properties.
Psyllium husk is an ingredient commonly used in raw cakes, slices and energy balls to absorb up some of the wet ingredients and ultimately thicken the mixture. Likewise it can be added to soups, stews, curries and patties as a natural thickener. Add a teaspoon to your smoothies, porridge, granola and muesli bowls for an extra hit of dietary fibre, or even add a small amount to cups of herbal tea or water. Psyllium husk is also useful in this Seedy Bread Mix and similar recipes to thicken and bind.
