Dissolving the HFC
For best results: Add the liquid to the powder rather than the powder to the liquid, otherwise the powder will float and tend to form lumps while being stirred. Lumps will dissolve easier if they are crushed against the side of the cup or bowl and further stirred.
Hot Protein Beverage
Use it as a hot beverage instead of tea or coffee. Add 2 T of HFC to a dry coffee cup and pour hot water onto the HFC. The hot water and stirring will dissolve it within 15 - 30 seconds.
