Thumb Tack: Is Soy Lecithin harmless?



I came across this article this morning over at Girl Meets Nourishment about soy lecithin and how it's not just a harmless food additive that we can forget about. 

And as usual when reading an article about some hidden health concern, I was disgusted...and annoyed...and frustrated... 

Disgusted because I've been eating foods with soy lecithin my whole life, annoyed because the FDA has pulled the wool over our eyes yet again, and frustrated because soy lecithin is in so many foods that I enjoy (try finding a chocolate bar without it!). 

But yet again, this just confirms that we need to continue to make the shift to an agrarian life in which our food is produced either by us or our local farmers. 

Distressed that your favorite chocolate bar contains this harmful ingredient? Have no fear! Make your own even more delicious bar from this recipe over at Homemade Mommy.

What hidden food additives have you learned about lately? How do you prevent letting these harmful foods into your kitchen?
