Random Thoughts

Gleaned while dealing with food issues today. The folks to produce most of the packaged food in this country put soy into EVERYTHING. If I didn't know a little about food production and economics I swear it was a conspiracy. You think I'm kidding? Try finding a food without soy lecithin in it. Lecithin is an emulsifier; that is, it is used to combine fat with water. Normally, the fat is in the form of vegetable oil. Soybean oil, sunflower oil, or safflower oil.

But they use soy lecithin like it's going out of style. It's in chocolate. It's in most the Halloween candy out there. It's in sauces and soups. It's in friggin TAPIOCA PUDDING MIX, which is how I got to thinking about this in the first place.

Eating that much soy can't be healthy. But seriously - try finding foods without a soy product in it.
