    Very informative, but not easy to read as a forum based chart. One thing I noted is that in some instances in Sections 6 and 7, the Net Carb figure was less than the Carb value. I wonder how they did this?

    Do you have a link for it? I would like to print it out for my own use, but the screen capture is even worse.

    Thanks, Clive. I was able to read the website and bookmark the link.. It is in their 13 June archive. The webpage displays at higher resolution than the Forum so is more readable, but what you posted is probably good for most except for oldies like me with failing eyesight.

    Lol .. I bought Psyllium Husk for some reason and I can't think what it was for. It says Colon Cleanse on the pack so I assume it's a sort of laxative but what was I going to use it in I wonder? It also says consult your doctor if you have allergies or are diabetic.

    Could not find Guanthan gum, but did find Xanthan gum which is used as a thickening agent/ binding agent in low carb sauces and vegan dishes. Also found Guar gum which does the same. Think this is what you may have?

    Thanks for that but I think I bought it to add to something I was planning to cook and never got round to it. It must have been an ingredient in something but no idea what. I don't like these things that say "can cause choking" if you don't drink loads of water :(

    I've just checked it, & I have Xanthan Gum. Thanks for your trouble, it was much appreciated, especially because it made me go to the cupboard to check & have noted the Best before date is 30.12.15. - it's a 100 gr. pack, so when I buy it again, I'll know exactly what it's for, and use it. Thanks again.

    I tried my Xanthan mixed with about 1/2 cup broth, only a couple of fine shakes, but I didn't like the slimey consistency, so I binned it, it was just about out of date anyway. I think I'd bin your Psyllium husk too, if I were you, considering what it's meant for.......lol
     
  16. I use psyllium as an ingredient in these rolls -

    They are edible, but not as tasty as Lidl rolls.
