I seem to be very allergic to the usual fiber supplements containing psyllium. I find this grapefruit pectin to be very good, I usually blend it with apple juice to improve the taste and then it is really very good and easy to drink - I use a big heaped tablespoon in 8oz of juice. It works very well as a fiber supplement but also the grapefruit seems to have an excellent effect as well. It seems to improve the condition of my tongue. It's one of the few products I use that I can really notice a direct benefit from and anti-inflammatory response after taking it.
It has a tan color and the taste is medium or acceptable. I like this because I eat grapefruit daily and I process it(white rind and fruit) in a food processor, however sometimes it is too juicy and high glycemic so I will add this fiber to thicken and lower the glycemic index. This contains pectin which of coarse is good for detox, etc. I like the container type and size.

I try to vary the kind of fiber I use and use this grapefruit fiber even though it is extremely bitter. It's convenient to use as it blends fairly easily in juice. I've found that putting it in grapefruit juice takes the bitterness down a few notches perhaps because of the grapefruit juice's bitter sweetness. It's also economical.

The taste is terrible. It is too bitter even when I mix it with juices. I am going to buy gelatin capsules so I can take it in pill form.
