Is it true that Metamucil won't dilute with water?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Metamucil is intended to introduce fiber into the digestive system. While much of what we eat dissolves in water, fiber does not. That's the point. Fiber adds bulk to allow the digestive system to function properly. If it dissolved in water, it would not be at all effective. Fruit, veggies and whole grain breads are great sources of dietary fiber.

Metamucil fiber supplement comes in a powder and pill format. The powder form is designed to be mixed with water. That said, it generally doesn't taste good. The pill format is easier to take, but make sure to drink plenty of water with it. Otherwise it can cause uncomfortable choking if the tablet breaks before getting to your stomach.

Yes, metamucil is almost invisible. When Metamucil is mixed with water or any other liquid it's just like nothing was there except for a slight tint. It's also tasteless so there isn't any bad taste like other powders. So it hardly effects the water or whatever someone decides to mix it with.
