Which Grocery Store Aisle Is Psyllium Husk In?
Psyllium husk is frequently sold as a supplement in a capsule (sometimes mixed with other ingredients), but it's also sold in powdered and whole husk form (in a bag or in a bottle).
For any type, the first place to look is in the supplement section of the grocery store. Chances are good that it's with the fiber dietary aids.
If your grocery store has a bulk section, this is the next place you'll want to look, especially if you can't find a supplement without added ingredients.
Your last resort may be searching online, but there are plenty of retailers to choose from. Whether you're looking in a brick-and-mortar store or online, one of the places below is probably your best bet...
