    Anyone know if these are allowed? I've been having them every day and they are helping enormously, but I don't know whether they are okay to have.

    according to my CDC they are NOT allowed, that is why they sell fibre 89.

    Fibre 89 is what CD sells to help constipation. IMO it doesn't work as well as PH and I buy PH from Healthspan and use them myself. Also advise my clients about them. Not sure if Cambridge actually have a policy of whether they are allowed, but as they are not absorbed by the body i can not see why we can not use them .. so i do!!

    Hope that answered your original query Miel?

    I was having the natural form of PH but I've gone of them, so have bought some of the tablet ones. How many should we have a day? it says 2 an hour before each meal on the jar....

    Also ... what is it like just in shakes? I tried the porridge, but don't really like it. But now have a huge jar that cost me £10 :eek:. If I sprinkle some in a shake, does it taste OK, or is it horrible?

    Oh Wow! Thanks for all the answers, I didn't realise that it was so popular.

    Cee-Cee, I mix mine into my shakes after they've been blended and that's fine, I have also taken them in water but that's not so good. If you use them in water definitely use water flavourings. I prefer to use a small amount in each of my shakes throughout the day and it works well.

    I use flaxseed instead of the PH, they taste much better kind of nutty but are a pure form of fibre I take them in my shake and in soup. Statrted on sunday morning and Im down 6lbs even with taking the flaxseed so all good!!

    No lactulose has sugar in it ..... most things ending in -ose are sugar based even if natural sugar.

    Not sure how many capsules ... try the minimum and work upwards if that doesn't have desired effect!
