Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Psyllium is a true dietary fiber, even though it is classified by some as a laxative or mucilaginous fiber, and is a convenient way to increase intake of dietary fiber because of its high mucilage content.
This bulking agent swells considerably when added to liquid, which can help to support healthy gastrointestinal transit time. This bulking action and healthy transit time can play an important role in maintaining healthy gastrointestinal function.

I use it to make my own crackers, or "knekkebrød" as we call them in scandinavia. I use 1/2 a cup each of almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds with two tablespoons of the husk powder and a big pinch of salt. Grind in magic bullet or food processor. Mix well with 2 cups of water and let soak for about 15 mins. This is enough for two trays. Use parchment paper on tray and use wet (so it doesn't stick) fingers to flatten. Put in middle of oven for about an hour @ 210 f or 100c.
Perfect for gluten free baking

I use this psyllium in my gluten free, low carb "bread". I did find that if I increased the oven temperature from 350 degrees to 375 degrees the rolls were not purple. This brand is recommended on many web sites.

Okay service, it came fast, nice product

I am very pleased with the quality of this product. I use it as a laxative. --In many stores, Metamucil is an option for psyllium powder. but it is full of sugars and fake orange flavoring and not as strong as this product that I bought from iherb.
Works well, harder to mix
Posted by 5433662059007722324 on Oct 24, 2016
Pros: Works great, much cheaper than Metamucil. I especially like NOW Foods commitment to sourcing products from quality suppliers and there are NO sweeteners of any kind in this. Cons: Does not mix well. Typically I just want to get this mixed with water, drink, and go on with my day. I don't want to pull out a blender or hand mixer.
