As per another recent review, this product used to be good, but is now a fine powder - ideal if you want to consume wallpaper paste! I contacted My Protein following the change, they said: - "I have spoken to our relevant department, they state the product is fine, it's just a finest powder due to the new production process. If you're unhappy with this product, please feel free to leave your feedback on our website." I hope the old version is re-introduced soon.

I've bought Whole Psyllium Husks for some time now and have always been pleased at the good texture but the.last batch was just husk powder. It wasn't how it was described so where the name of Whole Husks came from I don't know. I was very disappointed and thought the wrong product had been delivered but soon realized it hadn't when I read how products can look different being sourced from different places.

Psyllium husk mixed only with water - horrible (better mixed with cordial). However, add a scoop or two to vanilla protein base (or any other flavour), not only do you not taste the husk but it acts as a thickening agent - perfect. Add crushed ice, husk and vanilla powder with fresh espresso and blend and you've got yourself a frap'! It's great for fibre bulking of the bowel, keeps a regular bowel action. Word of warning: do not mix husk with boiling water as it turns into a mucous viscosity. Great value, delivery is always prompt and great fibre product, especially if you have a wheat/gluten allergy/intolerance.

Echoing the previous sentiments really. Previous product was great (whole husks). The new batch are powdered and thus not really ideal. They swell too quickly to drink. If you put enough product in the shake to be effective, its undrinkable. Enough to be drinkable and its ineffective. Can you please revert back to the previous formulation?

As others have said, the product has now changed to a fine powder when previously it used to be whole psyllium husks. I used to put a scoop of this into my porridge in the morning but I cannot do this anymore as it makes my porridge into an elastic-y lump which is inedible. I'm very disappointed at how this has changed as there was no warning to say. It is also virtually impossible to drink with water without feeling like you're going to be sick. Why change a good product MyProtein? :(

This product is completely different to the previous batches I have had. The old stuff was fibrous and mixed up to a pleasantly tasting and textured drink. Also, it worked well. This new stuff is just like Pollycell walpape paste. It is a very fine powder which sets to a disgustingly textured paste and is virtually impossible to swallow. Other users have made similar comments and I feel we have been conned. Either replace this with the old stuff or refund the money.

I am a huge fan of adding Psyllium husks to shakes. I have used the old 'whole husks' and the newer 'powder'. Some of the reviewers below seem to be confused as to the difference between husks and powder. The powder is made by grinding the husks down so that the gel produced is finer and has less of a grainy texture. If you are adding psyllium to a shaker, or mix your protein with a spoon, the powder may be a better choice because of its finer texture. If, like me you, mix in a blender, then it all gets turned to fine stuff anyway. Both forms of psyllium will provide the same health benefits (e.g. increase your daily fibre intake, help to make you feel more full post shake when dieting/cutting, help with the loo etc).

I'm yet another VERY disappointed customer who bought what I thought was the same product I had previously used - WHOLE Psyllium Husks. This product has been changed to Psyllium Husks Powder and is no longer the advertised product. (Trading Standards issue?) I need the whole husks and the powder is not a suitable substitute. I could have bought cheap powder from any other vendor & won't buy this again from Myprotein until the advertised product is reinstated.

The old product, when it was whole husks was far nicer, this new version is unmixable, tastes terrible and floats on top of whatever you mix it with like sour milk. I used to mix this with my orange juice, as it worked like a pulp in smooth OJ but now its horrible and tastes terrible. The old stuff was almost sweet but this new product, as someone else stated, is like flour and tastes about the same. Hopefully they take this criticism on board and go back to the old style, or I'll be swapping providers.

As a customer who has purchased psyllium husks flakes for a few years now I was upset to open my newly purchased packet to find this fine powder.

Just to reiterate the previous reviews. The composition of this product has changed from the previous excellent product offered by MyProtein. The batch I received (77779) was a very fine powder and not the same consistency of previous batches I've receive from MyProtein. It forms a glutanous substance very, very quickly. Whilste trying to consume it in the previous fashion (scoop of psyllium with a full shaker full of water), I just ended up with a mess in a glass. I tried again and found I was able to consume it by taking very small doses multiple times in quick succession. Seemed to work, for a few minutes... then i had a vomiting session in the bathroom! I'd suggest being very cautious with the dosage when you first try this. Maybe taking lots of small doses throughout the day rather than one large dose in the morning as I'm used to.

I tried this product after having being diagnosed with Bile Acid Malabsorption, and had either chronic Diarrhea or severe Constipation with excrutiating pain due to the Bile Acids. Having been prescribed Colestryramine which mops up the Acids it has the side effect of Constipation. Once I started on the Husks the results/relief was very rapid. I can't praise this product enough and take it twice everyday. I couldn't live without it as it allows me to function normally every day. It doesn't taste very nice when mixed with water but that's a very small price to pay for the superb results I get from it. Anyone suffering my condition or IBS should get this product. I promise you it is fantastic!

It's hard to get excited about powdered Psyllium Husks. On it's own has the texture of fine sawdust. However it's a cheap, natural source of fibre, with little or no taste of its own. Since going on a diet to lose weight, I've suffered a little from bowel movement irregularity, and while I have added extra fruit and vegetable to my diet they is only so much I can do. I thought I would try adding a little of this every day to get things moving more regularly. I add it to oat bran for breakfast, which makes for a pretty sticky porridge, but it goes down if you add cinnamon or something with flavour and eat it before it sets! It's a lot better with a chopped banana in a milk and yoghurt shake, where it doesn't distort the texture or flavour too much. Since adding it too my diet I've been more regular, which is good with no bowel problems associated with adding fibre to your diet - but I did increase the amount gradually over a week.

Goes Well With:

Banana/yoghurt/milk in a shake. Blitz and drink. You can use Soya milk and soya yoghurt if you don't want cows milk - it works okay too. Make sure you have plenty of liquid or it will form a sticky gel.

I thought od give this a go just to see...and oh my word its like a miracle cure. Started working after 2 days of use, i have 3 gram every morning in a small cup of water, doesn't taste of anything and mixes fine. I now go to the loo every single day without fail.

Yes, these are definitely not WHOLE psyllium husks, they have in fact been ground down to a fine powder. They also work in a different way in that they act as an immediate thickening agent rather than expanding in the digestive system. However, the bottom line is that they both perform the same function. As before, I mix them with flaxseed, protein powder, nutrigreens and ground oats to form a nutricious breakfast shake. Because of the thickening quality of the ground husks, though, you will need to add more liquid to the shake.

Great addition to a breakfast shake (or any other shake come to that).

This used to come as a fine powder, but now looks less fine. Somewhere in between porridge oats and flour. I'm not sure if that makes it more or less effective for digestion (I certainly don't have any complaints - pun intended) however in terms of mixability it's not as good as before.

Yes, it is effective, but after all this time, why are MyProtein still trying to con us to believe it is Whole Psyllium Husks when in fact it is actually Powdered Psyllium Husks? Surely being dishonest is no good for business. And like the other reviewers said, this powdered one does not mix at all in shakes or porridge and has an unpleasant texture that makes it difficult to use with anything or to swallow with water. MP should listen to its customers and bring back the whole one and in the meantime, rename the product to stop misleading customers.

I have Crohn's disease. I have suffered for many years with too many frequent trips to the toilet !!!! This product definitely helps to firm things up. Sorry to be so descriptive but if you suffer with Crohn's you will know what i mean. Less urgent trips to the toilet. I use one desert spoonful mixed with a mug of water in the morning and one late afternoon. It doesn't mix easily and tastes like wall paper paste. Also needs to be drank quickly before it goes like jelly. But I have tried so many things for this problem and it does help so worth persevering with. 🚽🚽

Nothing special about this particular product as you can buy it so many other places but the price is super here! :) It could have been better if you had a version with more fine powder with added taste (f.eks. lemon) - then it could actually taste good making it more attractive to people having a hard time swallowing this. Other wise, an advice to others is to add half a teaspoon of MP's flavoring powder - tropical storm is superb!
