Just curious, how does soluble fiber work? Something like glucomannan powder. They become gel-like or pudding-like when added to liquids. I think they're used a prebiotics a lot of times.

They swell up so much with moisture that you have to be very careful when swallowing a glucomannan capsule or risk an esophageal blockage.

So Meme, are you saying that the fiber in well cooked vegetables is OK? I sure hope so because that's the way I eat my vegetables and really don't want to give them up. I was never one to eat those fiber bars.
