    I've been eating a lot of 86% Ghirardelli chocolate, but I noticed that there is soy lecithin in it, is there a reason?

    Per Mark's recent post, not a problem.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    the lecithin acts as an emulsifier. Most chocolates have it, unfortunately.

    I read somewhere that the optimum percentage of cocoa solids for health benefit is 76. If I remember correctly, it's a Swedish doctor carrying out the research.
