Soy And Grow!


#1

i read the label on Grow! and it says it contains soy ? i always thought T-Nation were big advocates of avoiding soy at all costs lol


#2

Correct me if I'm wrong but I always thought the soy lecthin in Grow! was an emulsifier for the protein, enabling your body to use it effectively. It is not a soy protein that causes all the threats to your virility.

From a previous question about this:

"Lecithin is an ingredient found in almost all, if not all protein-based drinks. As I recall, it helps the powder mix with liquid (so it doesn't form a solid island on top of your milk or water).

This lecithin is derived from soy but it has nothing to do with soy protein or the isoflavones in soy we advise people to avoid."

That search engine is magical sometimes!

Lecithin or phosphatidylcholine is a phospholipid used to help instantise the protein powder.
