What's psyllium and why do we need it for this recipe? Psyllium is the seed of the plant that bears the Latin name Plantago ovata, also known as ispaghula. Psyllium is absolutely full of fibre. In fact, it's so bursting with fibre that it has an extremely high capacity for absorption (almost 10 times it's volume). Nutritionally, psyllium is widely lauded for it's cholesterol-fighting properties, as well it's ability to regulate blood sugar. It also has an excellent affect on intestinal health, helping to ensure regularity and eliminate impurities from the body. Psyllium is affordable and you can easily buy large quantities of it at health stores or online. It really can't be substituted by anything else in this recipe, since it binds the ingredients together thanks to it's high mucilage content - these colorless gelling agents expand and create a viscous liquid on contact with water.
Note: If the bread is still a bit moist in the centre when you slice it, that's normal. Let it cool and dry completely before serving.
