I almost stopped using this product after a few days. I'm glad I kept using it.

I already eat a relatively high fiber diet, about 35 grams a day through green leafy vegetables, legumes, etc. However, I wanted to add a few more grams of *soluable* fiber to my diet because of the positive health benefits. Many of the other types of fiber supplements contain ingredients that I don't like. Regular Metamucil uses psyllium husks that always make me feel like I'm swallowing sand paper. Benefiber apparently uses wheat dextrin.

Metamucil Clear & Natural uses inulin and is mostly soluable fiber. Inulin is derived from chicory roots. Chicory root is often used as a coffee substitute.

So I started to use the Metamucil Clear & Natural. In warm water, it mixed up very nice with no residue. I could not detect any taste, and it had the mouth feel of drinking a Snapple (just slightly thicker than water but very pleasant).

I started with 5 grams (one teaspoon) for a few days. On the second day, I had some bloating. On the third day, the bloating was pronounced and I also had uncomfortable constipation (sorry, but you need to know, and if you're reading this I figure you can handle it). I'm glad I continued, because after about four - five days, this stuff really works. I use 10 grams a day now (one teaspoon, twice a day), and this stuff is great. No more bloating, and everything else is great too.

This product is a good way to add fiber to your diet, but like any other food additive, should be added gradually.
I made the mistake of using too much on the first day, and while it didn't upset my stomach too much, I could tell that my body sensed a change.
What's great about this inulin product is that it does mix extremely well into warm foods and Greek yogurt - among other foods. I have been adding a heaping teaspoon to my coffee each morning and that's an easy way to get a dose of fiber in early in the day. I would advise you to heed your body about this product. For me, the changes have been mild, but everyone has their own tolerance for changes in their diet.
I hope to incorporate both inulin and psyllium into my daily meals, since both have their respective health benefits. Unlike psyllium, inulin dissolves and stays the same consistency in your foods, so there's no chance of choking and probably less chance of food allergies. If you want an easy way to add psyllium as well, consider Metamucil fiber wafers. You can eat them as a snack along with coffee, tea or a cold drink. My goal is to see if fiber supplementation assists in weight loss and promotes regularity.
A heaping teaspoon of Fiber-Sure delivers 5 gm of soluble fiber (25 calories and 6 gm carbohydrate) and the product is 100% inulin - no artificial sweeteners or flavors added.
Supposedly inulin enhances calcium absorption and for this reason it is added to yogurt, kefir and other dairy products. It is considered a prebiotic with some studies indicating that it helps to add "good bacteria" to the "gut".
The inulin is produced in Belgium and then packaged in the USA. From what I have read, it appears that Belgium is the primary producer of inulin. Inulin is often derived from chicory root.

UPDATE: There has been some confusion when I refer to Metamucil versus Fibersure. Metamucil Fibersure is made with inulin, whereas original Metamucil is made with psyllium. When I refer to "Metamucil," I am referring to the original product made with psyllium.
____________________________________

I got Fibersure because I wanted to add fiber to the family's diet. I started mixing it in everthing I made that was wet. No one could tell it was there.

It's not gritty like Metamucil MultiHealth Fiber Original Coarse Psylium Fiber Powder, 114-Dose Bottle and doesn't stick to the glass like Metamucil. It's also flavorless, unlike Metamucil.

The bottle says not to mix it with fizzy things like soda. I'm guessing it flattens it out, but i haven't tried it. I did try it with a dressing made with mayonaise and the mayo seemed to get more runny so it did not come out quite as good.

I usually have it in my Crystal Light. It's pretty good that way, mostly because I can't tell it's there.

I don't really want it in water, though I've done that. It might be psychological, but I don't like the thought of having this tasteless stuff in water, so I down it quickly. Honestly, I don't taste it, but I don't want anything in my water unless it flavors it, like Metamucil does.

One thing I'd like them to improve is the design of the opening of the container. It would be nice if I could fit a spoon in it to scoop out the fiber, rather than having to pour it out.

UPDATE: Keep in mind the number of units you are getting. This listing is for one bottle only. Whereas, another listing was for six bottles for only double the price listed here. It pays to shop around -- even if it's just here on Amazon.

Let me start off by saying that there's going to be some bathroom TMI in here, but if you're reading reviews for Metamucil, I'm going to assume that you're kind of okay with some TMI. In any case, I will tone down the gross factor as much as I can.

First, here are the positives of this product:

(1) It's smooth and not gritty at all, and has no taste that I can detect. I can't taste it when I've mixed it into even a thin beverage like water or apple juice.

(2) It dissolves fairly easily. Usually it dissolves really easily, though occasionally, little intractable clumps get left behind on the spoon or in the bottom of the glass.

(3) It hasn't made me any more constipated. Not that I would expect fiber to do that, but I'm trying to be as positive as I can about this product before I launch into the section below on "why I'm already searching for a new fiber product."

Next, here's why I'm already searching for a new fiber product (this is in ascending order of importance to me):

(1) It honestly doesn't do as much as I thought it would. I am taking the recommended daily amount (3 teaspoons, or 15 grams), and despite having stuck with it for a while, I haven't seen a noticeable change in my stool habits. I've gone from 4-5 bowel movements a week to... 4-5 bowel movements a week.

(2) Here's the real kicker. The only real change I've noticed in my stool habits with this product is that everyone around me is mortified, including me. Because the product is made with inulin (which is derived from chicory root), it gives me gas like you wouldn't believe. (Maybe chicory root won't give you gas, but it has always given me terrible gas--e.g. Fiber One bars, which are made with chicory root, tear my stomach apart.
