    What is the concensus on Xanthan Gum and Soy Lecithin?

    Primal Fuel
    When xanthan gum is derived from wheat will it still contain some gluten? And does soy lecithin still have soy containing properties? I've seen varying reports.

    A store near me has a huge sale on protein powders at the moment and I was looking at getting JAy Robbs vanilla and dreamsicle powders. But I'm unsure about the sourcing of the xanthan gum in the products.

    lecithins are not things that you should ideally be consuming; Mark Sission explains why through numerous blog posts that you can search for on the main page of this site. As for Xanthan gum I tell that a good rule of thumb is that anything that undergoes industrial processing is not somthing that is primal/paleo that you should be putting in your body.
