Based on all the wonderful comments (which you should make sure to read), I’d like to present a caveat. The following is true for me, and not everyone. Read the comments and continue research to find out what is true for you.
Okay folks, here is the deal on soy lethicin. For years (or at least a year) I have meticulously avoided this little bugger that they hide in everything. However, recently my naturopath told me something amazing – I’m not allergic to soy lethicin.
“What?” “Why?” you might ask. Well, let me tell you. Apparently, just like lactose intolerant people aren’t allergic to butter because butter is only the fat of the milk product, soy lethicin is only the fat part of the soybean allowing us soy intolerant people to tolerate it. Did you catch all that?
Now I don’t want to cause any stomach aches, so please, check with your naturopath. But, do you realize the revolutionary results of this discovery? Yes my friends. Chocolate, chocolate covered ice cream bars, gluten free pretzels, and more…..not that we healthy people ever eat that stuff;)
