It works great in shakes or smoothies. The blender seems to get it mixed up better than a spoon of course.

It's not as easy to take as the capsules! I actually have to stir the psyllium powder drink as I suck it down with a straw as it seems to float in top of the water.. Then I need to clean the glass well or the powder seems splash up into my glasses in the dishwasher, and then dry there. My son is always complaining about that when he pulls out a glass. I'm just saying that this product is inexpensive and works well, it's just not a pleasant experience and leaves residue in the dishwasher. So it's not a perfect product, but having soft stools and a favorable effect on hemorrhoids it's worth it to me.

Every time I have used the Equate products they have worked as well as the name brands.

I will have to check this out...I have been using Benefiber clear, but it causes horrible gas & doesn't help that much anyway, so on to better things!

Thanks for the info on the Equate Brand Smooth Texture Psyllium Fiber Therapy. I have been using Metamucil capsules but they are rather expensive and you have to take so many! I will definitely try this out!!!

I have IBS with Constipation and for the longest time I was using Metamucil Clear and Natural 5% fiber (Inulin). But it got too expensive for my tightened budget so I recently switched to Walmart's Equate Brand Smooth Texture Psyllium Fiber Therapy. I must say that a rounded tablespoon in the morning and another in the afternoon works wonderfully! And it doesn't cause gas! IN the past I swore Psyllium fiber cause horrible gas, but that seems to be a wrong deduction. With two doses of this smooth texture fiber a day, I manage to empty my bowels every morning, even better than the Inulin fiber did. I was impressed! The only complaint I have about the product is the Orange flavoring- The critic acid is giving me heartburn. I prefer unflavored fiber powders, which is partly why I used the Clear and Natural.
