Does not disolve
I usually buy the Benefiber mix, but bought the Equate brand after I couldn't find Benefiber at my local Neighborhood Market. This product does not dissolve AT ALL. I never had problems getting Benefiber to dissolve in my regular drinking water with just a few shakes. This stuff clumps and gathers at the bottom, even with rigorous shaking. I've tried several ways to get it to dissolve with no luck, and will likely be throwing it in the trash and spending the extra money on a name brand. Very disappointed in this product.
Does the job at a great price
This product does what Benefiber does, but at a much better price. I see lots of concerns about it not dissolving well in the product reviews. As a regular user of this product for about a decade, I suspect what happens is sometimes it is not ground as finely as usual. As though there are two grinding stages and sometimes the second (fine) stage is omitted. Using more water helps. Mixing a finely ground bottle with one less finely ground helps. Doing lots of stirring helps. The product has the same active ingredient as Benefiber, and works just as well. To me, even when it's ground less finely, it still dissolves reasonably well, if I'm a bit patient, stir more, and use more water. Given the great no-taste no-texture nature of this stuff and the price, to me it's a terrific fiber supplement for those who need one.
As helpful as Benefiber!!
Since I started using this product for over 2 months, I no longer have any constipation. I read that somebody complained that it didn't dissolve as well as Benefiber....well!!! I always use it with either lukewarm or warm water so I didn't have any problem at all. Try it, because this way, you'll save a lot more money buying this brand instead of Benefiber....unless you have plenty of money to waste, so why not ha ha. I can understand that because I used to buy only the brand names until I read Consumer Reports, and realized I've been so ignorant all those years!!!! After that, I would check Consumer Reports before buying anything :).
Same as Benefiber but cheaper
Because of the elimination of Benefiber from store shelves (due to some problem in the manufacturing) our pharmacist recommended Equate fiber instead. It is the exact same item (ingredients) for a lot less money. Wish we had known about this before!
Helped my late night cravings!
I love this stuff! It's exactly the same as the benfiber, I have both and there is no difference. It dissolves but some times it takes a stir and agitating to get it there. That's a small complaint for a large benefit. Best of all, it's tasteless. I put it in with my cereal at night and it's replaced my dinner and late night snack helping me curb my calorie intake. It really does make you feel full. Plus I have noticed my digestive tract is more regular. I'm a long time Metamucil person but this doesn't have that gel like composition or coarse powder feel to it. You can add it to food while cooking or liquids. It doesn't thicken, it doesn't gel, only the occasional clumping but it quickly breaks apart. I couldn't afford to keep using benefiber so finding this was a true plus!
