I use about 1/2 cup or so. But it really depends on how soupy you want to make it. The questran really tightens up the applesauce, so adding more sauce would make it more like sauce and less like taking medicine. I have found that I really only need to take about a teaspoon or so of the questran so 1/2 a cup works for me. Also I make my own applesauce so it might have a slightly different consistency than store bought, but not too much judging from what I have seen my daughters friends eat.
I have also found that if I take the questran for a few days it seems to have a cumulative effect and I don't go for a few days. When I know I will be traveling I start taking it about 3 days ahead of time and BAM, I don't need a bathroom all day on travel day. Of course like all things Crohnie, we are all different, so who knows what it will do for you. Good luck and let us know how it works.
I take the pill form mostly now because the packets I had expired. I like the pills because they are easier (no taste!!!!!), but the powder is easier to tailor the dose to a very small amount. Just more things to think about.
