I use PolyD Fiber daily: 2 Tbs mixed in my blender with a large glass of milk (I use a chocolate milk product I like). I add 1 TB of oat fiber, half a ripe banana and/or other fruit(s). In doing so, I make sure I get the fiber I need every day to stay "regular" and enjoy a delicious drink besides. I recommend you experiment a bit to determine the amount of fiber that's just right for you. The description of PolyD says it dissolves best in warm liquids and tends to gel in cold liquids. I find that sprinkling the fiber powders into the blending milk-&-fruit mixture is successful in taking care of any potential cold-liquid problem.
I love this stuff. I made some completely awesome strawberry jam with it. The consistency is like full sugar jam. I also made a really good pecan pie with it. google recipe for poly d "corn syrup" and here is the jam recipe:
1 cup crushed strawberries, 1/2 t. lemon juice, 1/2 cup polyd, 1/2 cup sugar equivalent sugar substitute of your choice, 1/2 t. strawberry extract, 1/4 t. butter. mix all ingredients in medium saucepan. Boil until polyd is all dissolved. you can also microwave at full power for 4 min. stir and go for another 4 min. Try this with carbalose biscuits! I also use this in cookie recipes. I do need to be careful not to have too much at one time due to gas.
I used this to make CarbQuick Peanut Butter bars (check their website for the recipe) and was so pleased with the way they came out. Very similar to brownies, only peanut butter flavored! When I ran out of PolyD, I tried the recipe with psyllum husks, which is another water soluble fiber, and the texture was not palpable. PolyD will give your baked goods a moist, almost chewy texture, which I imagine would be nice for low-carb cookies as well. I'm buying four more bags to try other recipes. I highly recommend this product for low carb baked goods.
I LOVE this stuff!! I add it to baked goods and you can't even tell it's there! It doesn't change the taste or texture of the food which I love! Other products have a strong flavor or absorb a ton of liquid, but this one doesn't! Try it, you'll love it!!
Well all I can say is polyd fiber rocks. I have been able to make chocolate syrup using a mix of sweetners,poly d, coconut oil, cocoa or baking chocolate and cream. I just ordered 4 more bags! Delicious!! Jodi
I mix this with Erythritol and either stevia or Ez-Sweetz. Really helps improve texture - fantastic in ice cream. I'm able to make delicious homemade jam using Pomona's pectin and its just like sugar sweetened except I can adjust the sweetness to my taste. Just be careful to mix it thoroughly with your dry ingredients or add very slowly with a whisk to liquid and then heat. It absorbs moisture from the air very quickly - have an airtight storage container available. Haven't had any digestive issues.
Poly-D has really added an extra dimension to my low carb goodies. I especially like to add it to my frozen treats like smoothies and slushies. In addition to the added fiber it keeps the ice smooth instead of chunky, really like a professionally made sugar type drink.It also replaces the bulk that regular sugar provides in baked goods and jams so when I make these products they truly are as good or better than sugar laden products or sugar free store bought versions.
I used to eat a cereal that was low carb. I found it helped me to be very regular. The cereal was discontinued and so were my regular bowls. I tracked down the manufacturer and got a list of ingredients. Poly D Fiber was the magic ingredient. I went on line and found it was available and cheap to boot. I am so thankful for Netrition. I was a stubborn case because the medications I take can cause constipation. I never ever have cramps. I sprinkle it on my cereal, add some fruit and away we go. Good Luck and happy pooping.
