I am type B and very new to this whole concept.  I can certainly see that I will need help as time goes on but for now my issue is Lecithin Granules.  In the Membrane Fluidizer Cocktail recommended for B's it calls for 1 T of these granules but it clearly has me avoiding Soy in all forms for my type so I am wondering why these granules would be okay.
Sorry if I seem dumb here but this is all very new.  Lately I've been looking to make some lifestyle changes and so while I am not extremely informed I am trying to learn.
I am glad I found this site.  There seems to be a mountain of information that I will try to sift through.
Thanks for any replies!!

Lecithin can be derived from egg yolks too.  In any case the process makes it neutral for BT B.

Donít forget to add your shield so everyone can relate better to your circumstances.

Oh yes, Welcome fellow B.

Thank you so much... see I'm learning already.   Yes I did notice that Lecithin can come from egg yolks as you mentioned RedLilac but in the book it doesn't specify which type to get.  I only realised this by trying to track it down on the net. If you have the book it is on Page 163 just under Juices and Fluids.  I am going upstairs now to see if the bottle will tell me what type I have.  Thanks again.
Okay, I checked and it is soya flour and soya lecithin. So I am really curious about this.
Thanks for the FYI on the shield,it would have taken me awhile without it and thanks for the welcome(s).

Thanks Lola.  I guess I am trying to understand if I can have it why I could since B's should avoid soy oil, soybean, soy cheese, soy flakes/granules, soy milk, miso, tempeh and tofu.  I am just trying to make sense of it all.  Also if this is something that works for me I want to be able to answer other people's questions with some knowledge.
Thanks all of you,  I am off to work and will check back in the morning when I get home.
I do appreicate all the help.
Congrats italybound on the new grandbaby due in November. Is it your first?
Good night ladies!!!

If it has added soya flour, that is not good.  The soy lecithin that I have seen just says soy lecithin.  The lecithin does not contain the offensive lectin that the rest of the soy products have.  It is fine for type B's.  So is egg lecithin, but it's quite expensive.

I like the brand Health Alliance.  It is from non GMO soy and is finely powdered so that it mixes very easily into liquids (my smoothie!)

Lecithin is not given a specific value in LR4YT.  It is Neutral for all types.  For type Bs, egg lecithin is slightly preferred over soy lecithin, but either is OK.

I've been thinking about lecithin a lot, because it's supposed to be really good for your brain...  We sell Phosphatidyl serene (the phosphate extract from lecithin that's sup. really good for you) in pills at our HFS, and I was wondering if it would be good to take.  I bought a bottle of liquid lecithin just to try it... it tastes like axle grease, but it's not so bad when you get used to it

I've never liked the axle grease version.  The granular is more versatile.

I would be afraid the stuff was rancid. Fresh granular tastes very pleasant to me. But then, you might be a super taster who would be picking up something I wouldn't notice in the "axle grease," and the granular might taste awful to you too!

Try the lecithin granules by NOW, non-genetically engineered.  It has a pleasant taste and I put it in the morning drink along with the pineapple juice, lemon juice, psyllium, acerola and Carlson's cod liver oil.  Tastes good to me.

I take PS-100 mg. I got it at GNC. I get 30 gelcaps for $14.99 and I take one a day. It helps speed up my short term memory..I haven't seen it cheaper. It's ok for A's because it comes from soy. I'm not sure about B's or O's.  Dr. D ok'd it for me.

Most stores want $35-40 for the same amount..but again..I don't know what kind of strength is in the GNC brand.  $14.99 can even get expensive if you need more than one a day.

Mayflowers, this is a link to a product like yours at a huge discount. I have bought tons of products from GNC and this company for many years and they are equal in quality - in fact, this company may even make a lot of GNC's products. This is THE best sale of the year.

lecithin from soy is ok for all, no worries.
