I want to get some lecithin. Is it OK if it is derived from soy for an O?

I read a post somewhere a couple of weeks ago about Lola using it. What type of lecithin is recommended for O's?

soy lecithin is fine, unless your personalized swami placed it in the avoid category

in general, even Bs can have soy lecithin in their fluidizer cocktail

I get 2 SWAMI values:

Soybean Granules, Lecithin (avoid)

Lecithin (neutral)

Is it OK to take the lecithin in supplement form, such as this one?

Is plain lecithin from soy (the above supplement) different from soybean granules?

I would take it that meant soy lecithin was avoid, but lecithin from other sources was ok, but I don't know whether that's what's its supposed to mean......

avoid the soy based one and purchase an egg lecithin instead
voila!

Lola - I get soy lecithin as a neutral and I use a NOW - non-GMO which has immensely helped my liver and digestion (I have no gallbladder); between this and the Hepatiguard, major improvements in the liver department.

The egg lecithin, I've never heard of it, what brand do you use?

Thanks.

Yes, I guess that's what Dr. D means.

The only Fearn brand lecithin products (granules or liquid) I can find are Soy products.

If you go to this page it shows soy lecithin and lecithin granules.   I would say the one on the bottom is not from soy as the egg lecithin is more expensive than a soy lecithin...from what I have seen anyhow.

P.S. Might be best if you contacted the company and asked.

Since it doesn't show what type it is, I would def. recommend contacting them to find out.

That one is more expensive because it is for twelve 16 ounce canisters.

I presume the canisters, are just the normal Fearn Lecithin which is derived from soy.

One example of many showing Fearn soy lecithin canisters:

Of course it does not hurt to check with the company.

If you can't find the egg lecithin locally, but  a local store carries other products by the same company, you can ask the company to order the product for you.
