Soy Lecithin: When it’s Harmless and When it’s Not | The Healthy Home Economist
What about those without a soy allergy? Is avoiding all products containing soy lecithin really necessary?
My opinion is that yes, it is wise to avoid commercial soy lecithin due to the dangerous solvents and GMO soy used to produce it.
However, organic soy lecithin is another matter entirely. Organic soy is nonGMO and would not be extracted from the soybean using toxic chemicals. Therefore, small amounts occasionally consumed in processed foods would pose little risk to health.
