Powdered psyllium husks are the ground coats of seed from psyllium (Plantago spp.), a plant native to India and Pakistan where it known as isabgol or isphagula.

Powdered psyllium husk, which is mild and pleasant tasting, is added to foods as a thickener. Because the husks contain so much fiber, starch and mucilage, the powder is used as a thickening agent in the food industry in the manufacture of frozen foods, especially ice cream.

what else you should know

psyllium husks

Psyllium husk refers to the outer portion of the seeds of Plantago ovata, a plant in the plantain family. The husk is extremely hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs many times its weight in water. As a supplement, psyllium is a source of soluble fiber that improves transit time in the gut. As such, psyllium is a featured ingredient in over-the-counter laxatives and fiber supplements such as Metamucil.

Powdered psyllium husk is also used as a thickening agent in foods. The powder is also used as a binding agent in gluten-free baking mixes.
