I eat 2 Metamucil wafers every day. I get the cinnamon kind and think they're tasty. I don't know that there's much difference, it's just easier for me to eat the wafers, and it's like a little healthy snack. There are 3 grams of fiber per wafer and 3 grams of fiber per tablespoon of the powder (I have both here in front of me). There is wheat flour in the wafers, so if you have problems with wheat, you may want to avoid them (there isn't any in the powder). The wafers are a bit more expensive. The orange flavored powder is pretty good, too. I used to use that occasionally before I got UC. I sometimes take Fiber Choice, chewable tablets. It has inulin, a natural dietary fiber, in it, which is supposed to aide in healing the gut's mucosa. You can get them with calcium in them too. I don't really like the taste/texture though.
