Substitute for Glucomannan?

I was thinking about trying out some of the DD recipies but I don't have glucomannan. Would psyllium husks be a substitite?

Nope. Gluc is it's own special substance. If you can't find the powder, you can get the capsules at any pharmacy and just empty the powder out of the capsules. That's what I did until my order came in.

If you do a search with psyllium you might find some similiar uses. I know I remember reading where someone was using psyllium to thicken their shakes like some were using gluc. Guess you could try it since both are fibers that create a gel and expand.

Let us know how your experiments go. I was interested in this a while back too, but never got around to buying the psyllium yet.
