What is Psyllium Husk, and how do you use it?
Psyllium is a form of fiber derived from the husks of the Plantago Ovata plant's seeds, native to Iran and India. It's most commonly known as a laxative. However, research shows that taking psyllium is beneficial to many parts of the human body, including the heart and the pancreas.
Psyllium is by its nature gluten free, so safe for people with coeliac disease to eat and is useful for gluten-free baking.
