Guaranteed Potency and Freshness
Fearn Lecithin Granules contain 97% phosphatides, the highest concentration of any lecithin product available. Freshness is guaranteed by Fearn Natural Foods, leaders in lecithin and soy products for over 70 years.
Fearn Lecithin Granules are pure lecithin. The high quality of this lecithin makes it unnecessary for Fearn to enhance the flavor or aroma with added ingredients.
Nature put a small amount of lecithin into many foods. But with today's processing and refining methods of the foods we eat, much of the lecithin is removed.
Lecithin is an important part of our diet. It helps our bodies emulsify fat and allows our bodies to digest it more easily. It also helps our bodies assimilate many of the other required nutrients in our diet.
Fearn Lecithin Granules are high in phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylinositol, giving us the whole complex of phosphatides. They are also an excellent source of essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid.
Take one or two tablespoons daily.
Sprinkle Over: Cereals, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, etc.
Mix Into: Soups, salad dressings, sauces, gravies, breads and baked goods.
Blend With: Fruit or vegetable juices, using a blender for one to two minutes.
Soya lecithin granules.
Contains no sugar, salt or starch.

Fearn is not "non-GMO" so the pricing is a little lower than some of the brands that are "non-GMO". The phosphytidal choline content is high, which is the part of the lecithin that is necessary for it to do its job in the body, so it a good choice. It is a bit grainer and dissolves a little slower, so if texture is an issue, you should consider that.
Soy and Phytoestrogens

I give the product three stars only because my complaint isn't with regard to this particular product, but rather with the product in general. For those avoiding ingesting estrogen, please research. I bought this product after reading that the phytoestrogens are removed during processing, but other actual studies show soy lecithin to contain estrogen after all. I did try one serving, and found it to be heavy and tiring for impaired liver function. Disappointed to waste $10.00.
Hard to dissolve

If you want this for use in lotion making. Dissolve in the water first r a half hour.

I bought this the other day and started adding it to my smoothies. It made my smoothies really thick, so thick in fact that it would take me 2 hours or more to drink a cup, but it most certainly stopped any appetite after it until lunch time the next day. Very filling. I found it a bit difficult to drink a whole cup like this so reduced to half a cup. Same thing, completely full. It was still so thick so I decided to take the Lecithin on its own. Two tablespoons a day and they taste great and they still fill me up. I have noticed an overall improvement in my thinking, memory and organizational skills. Love these granules.

Really tasty to eat just from spoon. I even missed it after I run out of it.
