    Where are you located? If you're in the NE USA, and have a Wegmans nearby, their brand is the absolute best.

    This ingredient is found in numerous processed foods, and I don't consider it to be overly harmful in the grand scheme of things. This is especially true when you look at the small fraction of overall consumption we are talking about here with protein powders.

    Some people have actually used it as a supplement because it’s high choline content which is an important water soluble nutrient associated with heart health and brain development. The only reason to even begin thinking of not choosing a product containing soy lecithin would be if you are overly sensitive to soy. It doesn't sound like that is the case here though...

    Soy lecithin isn't a huge deal. the proteins are where the problems are. This is the absolute best Whey I've ever found, and it's really well referenced too:
    Upgraded Whey

    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
