I looked on Netrition for psylium hulls. They didn't have any hulls, but sell psylium husk capsules and psylium husk powder. The info. said it is fiber that can bulk over 100 times it's original density. Some people classify it as a laxative. It also says because psyllium forms an indigestible mass, it should not be taken with other supplements and should not be taken with water soluble supplements or medications in water suspension. Also, fluid intake should be increased when taking it. Psyllium should be avoided in cases of bowel obstruction or perforations.

I looked it up at Walgreen's website, here is the link. Looks like (at least here in the states) it is considered to be a laxative or colon cleanser.

Patdart, we want more than just a report on the taste, if ya know what I mean.

Flaxseed searches get you that same sorta data - laxative effect, purgative, colon cleanser . . . we use a lotta flaxseed & flaxseed meal around here - anybody having trouble with flaxseed? I do know that psyllium is what is used in Metamucil . . . y'think it's prob'ly about the same?

That's good info. to know. I'm not afraid of Metamucil. Thanks, Shanny. I should probably be getting more fiber anyway and with only 2 tablespoons in the whole thing, a couple of crackers wouldn't have much in it. I do plan to try this recipe and am glad to find out I can get the phylium at Walgreen's. After reading the info. at Netrition, phylium probably works well for making crackers because it absorbs so much liquid. I think it would be a good ingredient to use in other things, maybe cookies to make them more crisp. I'm looking forward to Pat's review.

I use psyllium husks in place of flax all the time...it is VERY absorbent...so don't leave it too long before adding it to the recipe to cooking it...

Thanks again, I'll be the 'bird in the mine' and give a review. I do hope they are good as they sound, but in any case, thanks for sending us the recipe!
When I said baking pan I meant the baking pan that came with the oven. Mine is about 30 cm X 40 cm, and the crackers are really thin (sometimes it gets so thin there will be a whole in the dough in the pan
)

Thanks for that info, optimist!

About the laxative quality, that's what made me sit up and take notice! I have a tendency to need Miralax nearly daily due to my love of cheese, which I find very binding. My doctor has told me it was okay given my problem to take it that often, so just having a couple of crackers daily should be GOOD for me.

I'm going to give it a try in just a bit. The health food store had it with the 'cleanse' products along with the other forms mentioned. They tried to tell me the powder would be better until I explained I was making crackers with it. Do any of you use any of the other forms for cooking or just the husks?

I really hope you will love them as much as i do!
I often have a little box of them in the car as easy to eat snacks when we have to go somewhere.
I`ve also given some to friends, and it`s a gift everyone has liked!
