Soy Lecithin Granules
Lecithin has been traditionally used as a health supplement to support fat metabolism. This is due to it having high levels of choline which is known to assist in the dissolving of fat and cholesterol and to regular kidney, liver and gall bladder function.

Soy lecithin is extracted from soy bean oil and is also used in many food applications as a natural emulsifier or stabilizer.
