    I\'m sure your description of SOY LECITHIN is accurate, but it falls short in two ways: (1) You don\'t explain why you put it into your products. I know it as an emulsifier. Is it to make your products creamy? ... and (2) calling it \"yellowy biproduct\" sounds truly unappetizing.

    What about mentioning the fact that Soy in unfermented form contains phytoestrogens, which greatly increases estrogen in males leading to a link in breast cancer.
