Default Wheat Dextrin - Benefiber

SWMBO came home the other day with Benefiber. I'm like what the hell is this crap? I looked at the ingredients. "Wheat Dextrin"

I think you know where this is going...

Hmm..... If I wanted more fiber in my diet, I could drink it. What if I put this in my beer.... Better frothy head??? I wonder if this would do that. I wonder how fermentable this would be too?

I think wheat flakes and oats are the best bet. I'm wondering if I was the first to think of this.

Looks like a fairly new product, I think you need to try it and report back.

SWMBO has a container of it in the kitchen as well. Neutral taste for sure. Let me know if you experiment, and your results.
