    So I started taking a fiber supplement that uses maltodextrin ...now I do pride myself on being grain free so are there any fiber supplements that don't use wheat products??

    Lots'a veggies are your best bet, otherwise whole grains like

    Amaranth, cooked (1 cup = 18.1 grams)
    Amaranth flakes (1 cup = 3.6 grams)
    Brown Rice, medium grain, cooked (1 cup = 3.5 grams)
    Buckwheat, roasted groats, cooked (1 cup = 4.5 grams)
    Cereal, whole grain hot or cold cereal
    Corn, sweet, yellow, canned, whole kernel (1 cup =3.1 grams)
    Corn, frozen, kernels on cob (1 ear = 1.8 grams)
    Cornmeal, yellow, whole grain (1 cup = 8.9 grams)
    Millet, cooked (1 cup = 2.3 grams)
    Oatmeal, gluten-free, cooked (1 cup = 4 grams)
    Popcorn, plain, air-popped (1 cup = 1.2 grams)
    Quinoa, cooked (1 cup = 5.2 grams)
    Sorghum flour, white, whole grain (1 cup = 12.1 grams)
    Wild Rice, cooked (1 cup = 3.0 grams)

    or if it has to be in a pill or drink http://www.livestrong.com/article/480229-gluten-and-wheat-free-fiber-supplements/

    Metamucil powder does. It is "gluten free" and I take one serving at night. I am a fiber freak. I get about 150%-200% normal daily allowance.

    Your other option is pure psylium husk and mix it into a protein shake or something so it is disguised.

    I'd say google " non soluble fibre" even gluten free is not always free of non soluble fibre. I take it that's what you want... as per wheat and corn are non soluble fibre..... oats and rice are soluble... the good stuff.

    I only get my fiber from fresh fruits and vegetables. I put frozen cut up fruits and veggies in the blender like a V8, Jamba Juice or whatever... even add oatmeal and yogurt to boost. Fiber stuff is okay and all, and very releasing; but enough water drank throughout the day works out fine too.

    Just buy chia seeds. They are multi purpose and poses the perfect nutritional profile. They contain more omegas than flax seeds and are tasteless. Some other uses for chia can be as an egg substitute due to it's binding effect with water it mimics eggs' albumin, 3 tsp with 1/3 water equals 1 egg. It can be mixed with larger amounts of water to create a sports drink for endurance activities.

    I personally like to do two tablespoons of chia in the morning with 3 tablespoons of coconut oil just mixed in water. Energy for days.

    Buckwheat pancake flower and 1/4 cup of wheatena added in. VERY high fiber breakfast.
