I am fairly new and somewhat confused.  What is Lecithin and is it okay for Type O?

Thank you

John

The most recent rating of a food can be found using typebase:

It is an emulsifier. The most common food source for supplementation is soy.

Thank you for your assistance with this question.

Okay I think I may have phrased the question incorrectly.

I see Lecithin added to a number of items that might otherwise be compliant with the Type O Diet, and wonder whether it is a Beneficial/Neutral/Avoid?

Thanks again...

John

So the short answer is:  Soy Lecithin is neutral for all blood types.  (geek)

I still don't understand how something made from soy, ::) can be neutral for ALL blood types :-/

Maybe because it is an extract from soy, and doesn't have much soy left in it.

Just like olive oil is great for 'nearly' everyone, but olives are not good for a lot of types.

soy lecithin basically just has the molecule left that you need. He is comfortable with the purity of the soy but doesn't have enough evidence on the other lecithins.There is no protein left in the soy lecithin.
