On his landing page (.com/upgraded-whey) they talk about how it's impossible to mix without some form of soy but that the amount they use is so minute that it's basically irrelevant. They also talk about how they're trying to move to sunflower and working with formulations that will make it work.
he meant lecithin, not 'soy'. It's an emulsifier so it makes thing blend/dissolve quicker. 'Instantized' BCAA for example has soy lecithin to help things dissolve. It just happens non-GMO soy is widely available and cheap.
The crap in soy that makes soy 'bad' is not at all present in soy lecithin. So I think it's fine.
Non GMO soy Lecithin is on the far left side of the oils and fats bulletproof diet chart. So why should I eat that, how do I use it and how much do I take?
It's rich in choline which is important for brain function. So are raw egg yolks and sunflower lecithin.
Instead of buying non gmo soy lecithin just drop some egg yolks into your coffee every morning.
Anybody? I'm thinking he just put it on that list so nobody would freak out when they saw it on the ingredients of BP whey.
I don't see any reference to soy lecithin in his BP Whey ingredient list. Instead I see colostrum, MCT's and tapioca. Research each of those and you'll see why those are worthwhile ingredients to include in a protein powder.
His products are very high quality and this stuff is not cheap to source.
If you look at the ingredients across the board and you'll see it's consistently well thought out and put together.
