I just mix up my acacia with water. I always take some in the morning, whether I'm having IF or not. I put it in the glass first, then put the glass under the faucet (we have a faucet filter) and try to make sure the water hits the powder in the bottom. I stir it up with a spoon right away and let it sit for a few minutes and it usually dissolves pretty well.

For the rest of the day, I have a plastic water bottle I keep with me at work, so I put some acacia in that and fill it up with water the same way. It's harder to get the water to hit the powder at the bottom, so I shake it up, let it sit, shake it up some more, etc. By the time I get to work it has usually dissolved completely. I drink it throughout the day, especially right before meals.

Acacia powder is also great in fruit smoothies. The blender will mix it up very well, so no need to wait. I like to add banana to my smoothies for some consistency and extra SF.
