Psyllium: famed for its fibre

Psyllium husk is a great form of dietary fibre that is commonly used for its aid to digestion, and its gentle laxative effect. The fibre absorbs water to become a viscous compound that doesn’t break down or get fully absorbed in the gut and can then pass easily through the digestive system.

 

While other sources of fibre can be harder to tolerate long-term, psyllium is very well tolerated and gentle enough to be used regularly. It contains both soluble and insoluble fibre, both of which have health benefits. The soluble fibre dissolves well in water and helps soothe the digestive tract, while the insoluble fibre is an excellent digestive cleanser that can help remove impurities.

 

What are the benefits of psyllium husk?

Used as a bulk-forming laxative, psyllium is said to relieve constipation and help to balance bowel movements. It’s also believed to be effective in treating diarrhoea, helping to slow the passage of food through the digestive system and increase stool size.

 

It is also believed that psyllium can help to lower blood sugar levels. Fibre supplementation is known to help regulate blood sugar levels, as Its gel-forming fibres help to slow the digestion of food, which in turn reduces the rate at which sugars get metabolised and flow into the blood stream.

 

Similarly, by slowing down the digestion of food, it is thought to play a role in weight control. It is thought to delay stomach emptying, enhance the feeling of feeling fuller for longer, and reduce the appetite.

 

There is increasing evidence of the positive effect on the gut biome from high fibre diets and the knock on positive effects that a healthy gut then gives to the rest of the system.

 

Psyllium also has other benefits. Its binding action is thought to transport fat and bile acids from the body, which helps to decrease blood cholesterol levels. Regular use has been linked to reduced blood pressure and lower levels of heart disease, and it is thought to have a prebiotic effect.

How to add psyllium husk to food?

While its powerful water absorption and gelling capacities make it an excellent tonic for the digestive system, these properties prove more challenging when using the extract in cooking.

 

Thanks to its healthy fibre content, it’s often called a superfood and found in cereals, bread and other baked goods. It has also been used for its thickening qualities in ice cream and frozen desserts. We have seen an uptake in use in baking products such as bread and pizza where gluten-free options are increasingly required.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does psyllium husk work?

Psyllium husk is rich in fibre and works as a laxative. Once consumed, it is thought to help the bowels retain more water, which softens stools and makes them easier to pass. It may also support the growth of healthy gut bacteria.

 

How do you store bulk psyllium husks?

To store psyllium husks, it is recommended to keep them in a cool, dry place away from heat sources and direct sunlight. The husks should be stored in an airtight container to prevent moisture, air, and light from entering, which can cause degradation of the fibre and reduce its effectiveness.

 

Different types have varying shelf lives: whole husk can last 2–3 years, ground husk 1–2 years, and powder up to one year if stored in sealed containers in a cool, dry place.

 

What are your delivery timeframes?

We aim to dispatch the next day once payment is made on the courier service, or normally two to three days for palletised delivery within the UK. We also provide international delivery. Using a variety of transport methods and trusted freight suppliers, we deliver to your requirements.
