Vitacost Glucomannan Description
Multi-purpose, plant-based dietary fiber.
What is Glucomannan?
Glucomannan is a soluble and fermentable dietary fiber from the konjac root plant. Its chemical structure is similar to that of galactomannan (from guar gum) and comprises a polysaccharide chain of glucose and mannose.
Glucomannan can absorb up to 200 times its weight in water and forms a thick, gel-like mass that has been shown to be approximately five times greater than that of guar gum.
What are the key benefits of Vitacost® Glucomannan?
As a water-soluble fiber, glucomannan is appropriate for the relief of occasional constipation.*
The unique, bulk-forming property of glucomannan makes it a top-performing fiber specifically suited for providing a feeling of satiety (fullness) and promoting healthy weight loss.*
Glucomannan may be used as part of your diet to help maintain a healthy blood sugar level.*
Promotes healthy blood lipid metabolism and helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.*
Vitacost® Glucomannan is a targeted wellness solution - just for you.
Has no unpleasant smell or taste.
Has high absorption properties, meaning it can be taken in much smaller quantities than other fibers like pectin or guar gum.

Blueberry Kefir Mousse
- 2 tsp. glucomannan (or konjac powder or xanthan gum)
- 2 tsp. honey
- 1 cup plain kefir
- ? tsp. nutmeg (optional)
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- ½ tsp. lemon zest
- In blender, combine all ingredients on high speed until thick, about 2 minutes. Let sit an additional 2 minutes in the fridge to thicken more, if desired.
- Depending on the thickness of your kefir, you may need more glucomannan.
- If you don’t have glucomannan or xanthan gum, which are both prebiotic fibers to nourish the good bacteria introduced in the kefir, you can leave it out for a simple smoothie. You may wish to add more liquid such as almond milk or more kefir.
- Exchange the honey for maple syrup or any other sweetener and adjust to taste.
- For alternate versions, try raspberries instead of blueberries, or replace lemon with orange.
