Ok I know you know where I can get Glucomannan powder.

Is there a possible supplier I wouldn't need to order online from? Nutrition places? Walmart??

I would love this to thicken my Mushroom, leek and roasted garlic soup. Thanks.

You could try scanning the isles of your local drugstores where they sell vitamins and suppliments, but I do get mine online.

Ok I'll look there. Would it be in capsules I'd have to break open? Or like a bag with powder. Thanks.

Mine com in gel caps that I open when I want to use just the powder. I actually do take them as capsules though, for appetite suppression, which is the "recommended usage" on the label.

If you don't see it in your local health food store, ask if they can special order it for you.
I got the NOW Foods glucomannan, and most health food stores carry that brand.
Or ask if they order from Starwest Botanicals, which is a reputable herbs-and-spices company that sells gluc in 1-lb bags.

(These are US brands...where are you located?)

I'm in Ontario, Canada. Sometimes we have the same brands but I'll check at the health food store next time I go in for soap making stuff.

The NOW Foods website says they have a distributor in Canada,
so, even if it's not on the shelf, the health food store may be able to special order it for you. HTH!
