So, what is soy-lecithin?

Soy lecithin is a natural emulsifier that is derived from soybeans. It is a yellowish-brown, oily substance that is commonly used in the food industry as a stabilizer and thickener. Soy lecithin can be found in many different types of foods, such as chocolate, baked goods, and margarine. It is also used in the production of dietary supplements and medications. Soy lecithin has many health benefits, including its ability to improve cholesterol levels, promote liver health, and aid in digestion. Additionally, it is a great source of choline, an essential nutrient that is important for brain function and development.
