Psyllium husks

Psyl­li­um husks are very popu­lar as an alter­na­ti­ve to eggs in vegan bak­ing. But are they real­ly as recom­men­da­ble as gene­ral­ly assumed? 

Psyl­li­um husks are popu­lar in pastries and breads in vegan coo­king and bak­ing becau­se they have good bin­ding pro­per­ties and make the pastries quite fluffy. The­r­e­fo­re they are often used as an egg sub­sti­tu­te.

Our favo­ri­te aut­hor only com­men­ted once, but in an unmist­aka­b­ly nega­ti­ve way, about this tren­dy her­bal remedy. 

In addi­ti­on, Munee­za Ahmed knows that psyl­li­um husks are very dif­fi­cult to digest and can cau­se irri­ta­ti­on and inflamm­a­ti­on in the intestines.

(Note from Team Cele­ry Juice: Munee­za Ahmed is pro­ba­b­ly the best-known prac­ti­tio­ner in Ame­ri­ca, who was a cli­ent of our favo­ri­te aut­hor for seve­ral years in con­nec­tion with her own serious ill­ness and who has been very suc­cessful in advi­sing peo­p­le around the world accor­ding to his tea­chings. She gives high­ly recom­men­ded online cour­ses and brings tog­e­ther, under high­ly com­pe­tent lea­der­ship, a streng­thening com­mu­ni­ty of peo­p­le who want to fol­low their heal­ing path with this knowledge.)

Com­pared to eggs, psyl­li­um husks do not appear to feed patho­gens, but they still cost the body valuable ener­gy during diges­ti­on. This infor­ma­ti­on con­tra­dicts the wide­spread opi­ni­on that psyl­li­um husks are actual­ly sup­po­sed to sup­port diges­ti­on. So this is yet ano­ther exam­p­le of the ext­ent of wide­spread erro­n­eous health infor­ma­ti­on coming from alter­na­ti­ve medicine.

As a bet­ter alter­na­ti­ve for bak­ing, chia seeds and flax­seed flour appear in his recipes.
