2 out of 3 people would recommend this product03/01/2018, By CarnitaI absolutely HATED this product! I added it to thicken the cream with chicken and mushroom but made the sauce slimy and the recommended 1/2 tsp to 250ml on the packet is way too much. I had to throw everything out! Thick and slimy. What a waste!29/09/2016, By LumeI used this product with the hope that it would assist me with weight loss. I drank half a teaspoon in a glass of water 15 min before a meal and I lost 3kg with the packet. It also doesn have an unpleasant taste. Also a great source of fibre. Will definitely consider using it again in the future.29/12/2014, By AnitaI really like the glucomannan. Excellent to thicken souces and add to stews. Also use this in my smoothies...this is only the beginning.
