NOW Foods was a pioneer back in the 1960s, long before micronutrients, protein powders, and alternative sweeteners were all the rage, and today it makes some of the top products on the market to help nourish you from the inside out. The History of NOW Foods In 1968, health foods were still marketed in relative obscurity, but this is precisely the time when entrepreneur Elwood Richard opened a small chain of health food stores in Chicago.

Nice fiber & soup thickener

I originally bought this for a recipe and have been finding other uses for it. Besides guar gum, I like to use a tiny bit of Now Foods glucomannan powder to thicken soups and sauces. A little goes a LONG way!

Not good for sauces

When used as a thickening agent for sauces it creates a very slim like texture. Not pleasant at all.

Never ending bottle

This bottle is going to last me forever! You only need a tiny bit of this at a time. I use it mainly in smoothies as a thickener. I’ve also used it in gravy. You only need a very small amount or it makes it gel like. Very good value!

Works

This definitely helps with the "regularity" benefit. I'm not sure about the weight management support. If you don't drink it quickly, it does thicken due to the fiber, but it does not taste bad.

Not just a supplement!

Posted   by Thrive from FL
I use glucomannan powder in cooking to thicken sauces and soups instead of a flour roux. A LITTLE goes a long way! Sprinkle lightly over surface of liquid and stir. It will clump if you just dump a spoonful int. (But that is easily fixed, take out clump and mix or blend with more liquid.)
