    Take a look at bottled drinks.

    Coffee drinks.
    Fruit smoothies.
    Protein juice blends.

    Many of them have pectin in them in order to create a thicker consistency.  I notice because I bought some and found out that I could tolerate a little, about half a small bottle.  Anything more had me running to the toilet.

    Now I check the labels and have a very small selection of those products that I can consume.  Most people are just fine with pectin, but for me it's an effective and cheap laxative.

    Show me the POLICY!

      or almost any other processed foods, but that's very interesting. Do you find that foods naturally high in pectin, apples, for instance, have the same effect? It is a form of soluble fiber.

      The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

        As a dissolved substance, it is wicked effective.  Someone was suffering constipation related to opiate pain killers and I recommended pectin.  Never did hear back.  If I ever need surgery again, I'll take some with me.
