So, what is soy lecithins?

Soy lecithin is a versatile and widely used food ingredient derived from soybeans. It is a natural emulsifier and stabilizer that is commonly added to a variety of processed foods such as chocolate, margarine, and baked goods. Soy lecithin helps to improve the texture, appearance, and shelf life of these products. Additionally, it is a good source of choline, an essential nutrient that is important for brain health. Soy lecithin is generally considered safe for consumption, even for those with soy allergies, as it contains only trace amounts of soy proteins.
