Soy Lecithin

So one of the reasons I haven’t indulged in the chocolate chips that are still left over from the package Divvies sent is because they have soy lecithin, a soy by-product. Is soy lecithin really soy-like? Would it upset my tummy like soy milk does? Luckily, I'm not allergic to soy just a bit intolerant and after reading this fact sheet and this article it looks like either the lecithin has no proteins that cause the tummy distress or you just have to try to find out. Hmmmm.

Allergic Girl,

I have found some fabulous "allergen free" chocolate chips made by Enjoy Life. They contain no soy, dairy or gluten and are made in a dedicated nut free facility. I'm celiac; so I'm always looking for new gluten free foods, and I'm happy when I find things that are free of other common allergens.

Your blog is great!

Check this out for sure, but I have had information that indicated that lecithin does not carry the soy allergen.. And, being quite sensitive to soy, I do find that I CAN eat chocolate with lecithin. Hurrah.
