Does glucomannan just suck the flavor out of everything?!!

I've tried using glucomannan twice now;
I added it to a cup of chicken broth which tasted just fine before,
then like BLAH after;
same with a cup of chocolate protein.

I was really looking forward to using this to feel full on DDs,
but it's not really working since I had to "salvage" my snacks
by adding lots more stuff (and calories) to replace the flavor.

Does it help if you let the concoction sit for a while?
Anybody else have this problem?

I find that it does suck the saltiness and sweetness out of stuff. I tend to add more hot sauce/herbs/salt/pepper/sweetener until it tastes right again. I really noticed it yesterday when eating the noodles in a bowl of soup -- suddenly it was really blah!

Yes. You have to over sweet, season, salt and flavor anything you're glucing up.

I think it's a lot the same thing as how we're told that the magic shirataki noodles *take on the flavor of whatever they're put into*..... yeah, by sucking up some of that flavor!

I also just add in some additional flavoring ingredient. Or accept it *as is* for the blessing of a full tummy on practically no calories.

I find that the longer it sits, the less flavour it has. I overflavour anything that is going to sit awhile (e.g. pudding)--if I make a superlow OMM or a shake --something I am going to eat right away, it seems to be ok--You do have to totally jazz it up tho!

I have grown to love glucomannan. It halts my appetite like nothing else. Plus, I don't know if I'm allowed to post links and I hope I don't get in trouble, but you've got to read this blog about glucomannan: http://www.begin2dig.com/2010/01/glu...s-satiety.html. The links to studies done on gluco really impressed me.

I agree with all the above. You've got to add a lot of sweetness/savory ingredients, more so than you'd normally add. But I don't mind at all.

Glucomannan is the first diet aid I've REALLY become excited about. It works. I just wish I had the time to try all the wonderful recipes I'm finding on this site that use gluco.

Thanks, everybody!!!

putthekettleon, you can usually post links as long as the site doesn't sell anything.
