Can I remove psyllium husk powder from a recipe?

If you don’t have any psyllium husk fiber powder or don’t like using it, try replacing it with:

  • Chia seeds or flax seeds. For a recipe that calls for a 1/3 cup of psyllium husk fiber powder, a 1/3 cup of ground chia seeds or ground flax seeds will work. Make sure you take into account the calories and macros from the seeds you use if you are tracking your macros.
  • Xanthan gum. You can use a 1:1 ratio to replace psyllium husk with xanthan gum as well.

Keep in mind that these substitutions may not be able to add exactly the right texture and qualities to some recipes that you might expect. You may need to experiment with these replacement ratios a bit until you get it right.
