Default Awesome fiber product!

I found oat fiber - it is almost pure fiber, and can be added to many things.
I have added it to Bisquick heartsmart mix and yogurt. DH made muffins and put some in.

It has only 5 calories per ounce and a whopping 26 grams of fiber. I mix in several grams to up the fiber content on food.

Honeyville Oat Fiber

Where did you get it? Do you bloat and have discomfort because it has so much fiber?

cbmare - check the link in my first post. It's from Honeyville.
I eat a lot of fiber anyway - so it doesn't bother me. I shoot for 25-30 grams a day. This product helps me when I eat those things that don't have as much fiber (like the bisquick)

azmom - to my yogurt, I add about 4-5 grams per 1/2 cup of yogurt. That way it doesn't interfere with the texture too much. Not sure I would do any more than that. It's pretty tasteless, which is good. With the bisquick, I put in 11 grams of powder per 1/3 cup of bisquick. The 4 pound box is going to last me forever!

Fiberlover, you're really living up to your name! Thanks for the link -- I just ordered some. DH has IBS and fiber is the cornerstone of IBS treatment, plus this is soluble fiber which is gentler on the gut than insoluble. Fiber is something I always can use more of, too -- it really helps fill me up on fewer calories.

I love new food finds!

I love new food finds, too! Funny, it's so easy to add protein to stuff, but I could never get the fiber up without resorting to adding ground oats to foods - which doesn't always work very well.
I was so happy to find this. Hope you like it!

Wowie. That's a lot of fiber. Most days I get my required amount of 40-50g, but some days when I am not able to eat at home it is tough. Just a little bit of this on cereal or something would definately be a help on those days. Fiber is indeed a god send for IBS. I need to check around here to see if I can find it in a store
