Ground psyllium husk powder is 100% pulverized psyllium husk shells and is used to give a bread-like texture to gluten free baking. Due to its high fiber content it's often sold as a laxative which can be good to know if you have a sensitive digestive system.

This all-natural fibre supplement is just what you need for a happy colon and a healthy heart. Psyllium is a soluble fibre produced from the plantago ovata shrub. When dissolved in fluids, the husks swell up to create a gel. The soluble fibre content in psyllium husks has the ability to bind with bile acids, which play an important role in the digestion of fats from cholesterol found in the body. Psyllium husk is naturally gluten free and can be used in gluten-free baking, where ground psyllium husk seeds bind the moisture in breads.
