Glucomannan questions
 
What kind does everyone use? Is one brand better than another? Also, I read that some people have constipation with it...anyone have difficulties with that?

I just bought the NOW brand on Netrition. It is the first that I have purchased, but it is good so far. I will tell you tomorrow if I have any problems with it... I am eating my first full batch of it as I type!

I use the Konjac brand. It doesn't cause constipation for me, but if I use too much (same with the shiritake noodles) it makes me a little gassy. I guess it's from the fiber?

I haven't noticed it causing a bathroom issue, but I only use maybe a teaspoon of the powder every 3-4 days.

I have the absolute opposite problem. Glu runs right thru me--oy.

I use Konjac as well. Though I have laid off of it for a while...felt very heavy there for a week or so and suspected my gluc was the culprit. Once I get myself firmly into the next decade I will bring it back again in small amounts, just to see what happens. I really want to be able to use it, as it's so helpful in keeping calories low for lots of volume.

I've used the Konjac brand, and a much less expensive brand I found online - I would NEVER order the cheap one again! It has the same unpleasant odor as the liquid in the shirataki noodles, and it doesn't thicken as well. I ordered two pounds and it came "packaged" in a plastic bag tied off with a twisty. My "bargain" ended up in the trash, so no savings!
