What is Psyillium?
Psyllium or Plantago ovata Forsk is a plant that is grown mainly in India, United States and Southern Europe.
Psyllium is grown for use as a dietary fiber ingredient in foods like cereals.
Psyllium stalks contain tiny seeds, also called psyllium. The seeds are covered by husks, which is the part of the plant used in foods.
The term psyllium is used interchangeably for the seed husk, the seed and the plant.
The psyllium seed husk is a great source of water-soluble fiber. The fiber from psyllium is akin to the fiber found in oat grains and barley. However the amount of soluble fiber in psyllium is as much as 10 times more what you get from oat bran.
