As I mentioned in a review of the Benefiber fiber supplement in powder form, I've been taking fiber supplements for a little over a year at the time of writing (January 2008) in order to help prevent hemorrhoid flare-ups. I wanted to try a supplement in tablet form because I'm lazy and don't always feel like having to stir in the powder to take it. So I chose Benefiber's Orange Creme chewable tablets.

These sugar-free tablets don't taste bad, nor do they have an aftertaste. They are very easy to chew, as well. However, they do have a bit of a chalky feel to them, especially when you first put them in your mouth.

They're also about the size of a nickel and a quarter of a inch thick. Each tablet contains 1 gram of fiber, and 3 tablets makes up one serving for a total of 3 fiber grams. You can take up to 3 servings per day, for a total of 9 fiber grams.

Even though chewing the tablets isn't a bad experience, it's not really a pleasant one either. That's probably because I'm thinking too much about the fact that I'm chewing a fiber supplement. I'd rather just be able to swallow a tablet than chew it. Due to this preference, I won't be buying anymore chewable tablets from Benefiber or any other company. But if it's something that you're interested in trying, I wouldn't recommend against it.
