I have gone back to using psyllium husk as the main source of fiber in my recipe, I know many others do this as well. Psyllium husk as far as I know has about 4 parts soluble to every 1 part insoluble fiber. Recommendations I see tend toward 25-30% soluble fiber in the diet and the rest insoluble. I have also seen a maximum of 50% soluble fiber recommended.
Is this actually a problem? If so, in what way and how much of a problem is it?
I use a keto recipe and all options for insoluble fiber are problematic for one reason or other (intolerable texture, too much carbohydrate, upsets balance of micronutrients, unpleasant side-effects etc.) - I CAN add enough insoluble fiber if I have to, but it will involve some hassle (purchase of supplements etc to re-balance micronutrients) and I frankly do not want to change things around any more if it is unnecessary.
I found it strange that I have not seen this mentioned before especially with so many relying on psyllium for fiber. Perhaps this is because it is well known to not be a problem? I just don’t like making assumptions because soylent is 90% of my diet.
I have considered using microcrystalline cellulose but it would be quite expensive to get shipped into the country and I do not want to do this without good reason.
