Very disappointed with latest order of this product. It was rather like flour, when what I wanted was Whole Psyllium Husks. Previous orders were totally different and were as described on the packet.
On my last order I did not received whole psyllium husks but very finely ground powder. It is very difficult to mix with water. Why did you change perfect product to this? Very disappointed.
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.
This used to be great as whole husks but they've changed it recently so you just get a rubbish powder. I won't be buying these again as you've taken a 5 star product and made it 1 star.Goes Well With:The old type
Not like before where you had flakes, this stuff is now fine powder, so fine in fact when you open the packet it puffs up in the air. Not happy.
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.Goes Well With:Any protein powder.
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? :(Goes Well With:Nothing - it's gross
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.
If your reading this now you must add this to your cart, had belly ache for first 2 days as it cleared out my guts and now every time I go to the toilet it's nothing but 1 wipe wonders. Great for feeling full when added to a protein shake
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.Goes Well With:Woodchip wallpaper & a paste brush.
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. Initially I thought that my protein had sent me the wrong product. By the number of reviews surrounding this subject I hope my protein change the product back to what it was.
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.
Taste is horrible and can be quite overpowering, so had to experiment with serving size. Half a small scoop is fine for my morning shake. Seems effective.Goes Well With:Impact whey
Mixes very well, and does the job. Wish the larger size bags (1kg upwards) were still available. Still excellent value.
Great product, good price.Goes Well With:makes great oopsie rolls.
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!
Not really one for reviews, but thought this was a must. From suffering from an under-active thyroid for over 12 years my bowel habits have never been regular lets say, tried all sorts of different products but nothing seemed to work. 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. Excellent product *****
The new powdered Psyllium doesn't mix well at all. The whey protein I mix it with turns to paste after a minute, and it's not as effective as the old, whole psyllium husk. Why this is still advertised as whole psyllium, not psyllium powder is beyond me! Change it back please!Goes Well With:The old psyllium.
I ordered the whole husks and was sent a powder, this was not a big deal deal until I came to bake this into my bread. It's absolutely disgusting, very bitter and has rendered my loaf inedible. I've wasted a lot of good ingredients. I don't normally leave bad reviews but this really is an unacceptable product.
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.Goes Well With:Great addition to a breakfast shake (or any other shake come to that).
pleased with item not as easy to get down as the inulinGoes Well With:water or juice needs to be mixed vigoursley
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.Goes Well With:I use it with whey protein, but I would imagine it would go with any protein shake.
Can someone confirm that this is now a FINE WHITE POWDER just like chalk powder. The other stuff I ordered under the same product name turn to a gel in water and this doesn't??? Is this right. If not My Protein are conning its customers and are being dangerous sending unknown chemicals/products incorrectly labelled.
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. 🚽🚽
Excellent product it helps with ones digestive system and bowel movement
Very good product and excellent value for money compared to the same ingredient bought in health stores and pharmacies. It works as it should. The best is to mix it with orange juice (of some flavoured drink of your choice). It does not taste well with water only (but drinkable).
when i first started increasing my daily protien and cutting out sugars i noticed i wasnt getitng enough fibre for my guts to handle the protien (wont go into details) but had painfull cramps and so go this to balance my shakes more and so far have been fantastic ! no bloating or cramping and it mixes well (i do use a mixer ) with milk, water or soy milk and whey (plus what ever else i want in the mix) has no taste what so ever ! which is great ! and take a min to thicken the mix (i do like a thick shake ) and my insides feel so much better for the added fibre ! will def by again (plus the small packet contents fits perfectly inside an old nut butter tub ) Goes Well With:shakes, cooking (as per protien pow !)
Fast delivery. Works good, makes me feel more full, so I eat less. But it tastes awefull. Especially when mixed with water. A little bit better with juices.Goes Well With:Juices
I add this to protein shakes to add fibre to my ketogenic diet and yup, it works! Good price and the usual fast service.
Helps me to maintain my digestive system and to drink more water, too. 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!Goes Well With:MP flavoring and water
Just used these for first time tonight, made the mistake of pre mixing in with my protein shake as the husks have soaked up the liquid and its turned into a odd tasting slime... Not the most enjoyable texture. But mixed in with porridge/cereal i can imagine they would be much better! Will have to wait n see if I see results!
What a god send this was, I was getting regularly constipated and desperately needed a quality source of added fiber to my diet. Since I already take shakes, the easiest thing for me to get was a powder form so I could add it to my shakes. It doesn't effect the taste at all, just adds a few more bits (just like a smoothie!). The product really has helped me pass stools through regularly and comfortably, all at a great price! Can't recommend this enough to anybody, even if you aren't constipated, it really will help all round. Goes Well With:Unsweetened Almond Milk, Protein Shakes, Water
I add two small scoops to my whey drinks and I can say that it improves regularity and makes stools easier to pass. You have to drink it rather fast, otherwise it will drink up water and it will start to get gelatinous. For some reason it doesn't mix as well in milk.Goes Well With:whey protein
An excellent way to get some more fiber into your diet, especially if your drinking a lot of whey :)Goes Well With:Impact whey
Without going into too much detail, it works very nicely. Very nicely indeed. So much so that you look forward to your journey to the thunder boxGoes Well With:lots of water
I use 3 small scoops a day added to total nutrigreens, it doesn't mix well due to the nature of whole husks and tastes pretty bad, but the effects and feeling it gives you outweighs this. Excellent for digestive health and makes you have regular bowel movements. Definitely recommend for anyone.
Does what it says on the packet. Used it to make gluten free crackers. Yum!
Was recommended this by my sister, makes you feel really good no more sluggish system and no more pains from constipation,feel like a new person.also have lost 2 st in 8weeks am very impressed .Goes Well With:Orange,or black currant juice .
Maybe you're finding hitting your fibre target to be a challenge - especially if you're also trying to take in a significant amount of protein too whilst keeping the calories down - or maybe you suffer from bowel problems in general? Fear not - this stuff is the business. Two tablespoons mixed with one scoop of whey and milk in a shaker and you will barely notice the stuff going down, but boy will you notice the results. All you need to do is note the following: i.) Don't hang about - once you've added the liquid and done the necessary mixing, get this stuff down the hatch pronto, otherwise it will end up absorbing all of the liquid in the container and form a thick, inedible gel. ii.) Go easy at first - if you haven't got a naturally high fiber diet, don't hit this stuff too much too soon, otherwise severe stomach cramping will ensue. Start at one teaspoon, and work up to two or three tablespoons per serving. iii.) Increase your water intake - the same guidance for any other fiber product on the planet, up your water intake by a few glasses a day if you're taking this regularly. And that's it - fantastic product, fantastic price. Goes Well With:Flavoured whey + milk
Fantastic product , comes in perfectly usable bag. My only dislike is it doesn't come with a scoop for the correct portion size.
Good value, tasted poor on their own but great mixed with other things.
Very good product I mix it with my protein shake in the morning, works very well, you only need a teaspoon couple of time a day.Goes Well With:whey protein shake
Very pleased with purchase speedy delivery and excellent value for Money was a lot more of the product than I expected to get. I will definitely be making more purchases from My ProteinGoes Well With:I put it in all my fresh juices to help me feel fuller
Been taking this since diagnosed with a bowel disorder some years ago, magical, makes all laxatives obsolete.Goes Well With:Fruit juice
Was recommended by my sister, as I have a few health issues and needed to lose weight, absolutely brilliant have lost 16 lbs in 4 weeks and no more stomach problems from a clogged up system I can recommend it to friends and family..Goes Well With:Orange juice
Been using whey protein for 2 weeks and I have already noticed a improvement in the speed of my muscle gain and recovery! Felt easy to digest and mixes well when shaken for a good minuite. I got the unflavoured to avoid the sweetners added and still tastes fine with water. Great product, will buy again! Goes Well With:Water, milk
