Hello,
Just the other day I was reading on this site about someone locating a source for a Non GMO Soy Powder that they mix in their hot chocolate and they gave the website.

I didn't make a note of it at the time (at work) and  after much searching , I can't find it.
Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you.

Margaret

The NAP 'A' protein powder states in the back of the canister that all of its ingredients are from non-gmo food items.  One of the primary protein ingredients is from soy:

What about this one?  I am not familiar with all the avoids for all the types, but the ingredient list is on the page.

It looks fine to me as an 'A' secretor, albeit it is not entirely 'clean'.  I appreciate the aspect that it is fermented.

I try to steer away from food items that state 'natural flavoring' because of its unknown derivatives.  Often, natural flavoring it is corn-derived.

The fructose may cause problems for those that are sensitive to corn.

Thank you. Lola, for the NOW website.  
I went to my local small health food store and they said they didn't know of any Non-GMO Soy Powder but that someone had said there was one out there. After checking out the NOW website, I just called Whole Foods in the next town (who by the way just bought all the Wild Oats Stores) and they do carry a Non-GMO Soy Powder by Health Force (they gave me their web site:
http://www.healthforce.com) and the site looks sensational (ie bold) like the original one I saw on this forum. I'll go down this week and read the label myself although I was told it is 100% Soy.

Thank you, AliaVo, for the NAP Type A Protein Powder suggestion and for the heads-up on "natural flavors" because they may be corn dirived. The "A" powder has a lot of avoids for
O-Nonnies in it like inulin, fructose, stevia, & vanilla. The one for Os that I have is rice protein and egg whites and has a very strong rice flour flavor.

I'm only interested in the soy to thicken the hot chocolate and it is with trepidation that I'll eat it since I read "The Dark Side of Soy" and was convinced it was Satan's favorite food. But Dr. D'Adamo doesn't seem concerned with it for certain blood types and it is neutral for O-Nonnies.

Where did you get the idea that soy, other than soy derived lecithin, was neutral for type O non-secretors? I wouldn't recommend that you use soy powder.

I think that lecithin was discussed as being used by some in their cocoa powder and hot water drink.

Thank you, MoDon. I stand corrected.

I should have been clearer. I was referring solely to soy lecithin in my post.
You're right, soy in any other form than lecithin is an avoid for O-Nonnies.
Yes, it was the post where cocoa powder and hot water were thickened with soy lecithin powder that caught my attention.
I just called Whole Foods again to verify that "Health Force Non GE Soy Powder" was only Lecithin. So they read me the label and it says it is.  Still it is derived from soy and well...that has had a red flag on for me.

"Health Force Non GE Soy Powder" doesn't sound like lecithin to me.

Lecithin made from soy should be OK for you, because it should be essentially 100% lecithin with only trace amounts of soy left in it.

Hi MoDon,

I am holding in my hand the just purchased "Non-GMO Lecithin Powder" made by Health Alliance from Whole Foods.
I was wrong about the name of the product and it is 100% soy lecithin.

Now it only remains to try it. Later.

I am not sure if this fits into what you are talking about, but Trader Joe's carries a 1 pound container of Organic Whole Soybean Powder, and that is the only ingredient.
