What are phosphatides and why is the content different in Lecithin Capsules 140 and Soy Lecithin Granules
The term &ampquotlecithin" is the commercial or popular name for a mixture of naturally occurring compounds called phosphatides
or phospholipids. The principle components of this natural mixture are phosphatidylcholine phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol. Phospholipids are a natural constituent of cells in the human body. They have roles in supporting a healthy nervous system and are found in the myelin sheath which is a fatty protective covering for the nerves. The average diet contains about 5 to 10 grams of lecithin and about 400 to 900 mg of choline daily. Currently there is no RDA Recommended Daily Allowance. However choline a constituent of lecithin is considered an essential nutrient especially for pregnant women.
Areas of research include evaluating lecithins role in memory function sports nutrition and as a support factor for weight management. Whether lecithin supplements will contribute to reducing serum cholesterol is still controversial. Lecithin is found in egg yolks legumes liver nuts whole wheat vegetable oils and soybeans. It is also a source of polyunsaturated fat.
The Natural Products Association Standards Committee has adopted the Food Chemicals Codex III
Description and Specifications as an acceptable standard for lecithin p. 166 F.C.C. III and the following is recommended
• Dry or Oil Free Lecithin should contain minimum 90% phosphatides
• Liquid and/or Encapsulated Lecithin should contain minimum 50% phosphatides
As you can see our two products meet these recommendations
1. All Natural Soy Lecithin Granules Nutty Flavor 97-99% Phosphatides
2. Lecithin 1200 mg Soy Lecithin Capsules 60% Phosphatides
The soy lecithin granules are a premium deoiled soybean lecithin with no additives fillers or flow agents. It is characterized by its high phospholipid concentration low residual oil content and superior aroma and flavor profile. The percentage of phosphatides is higher in the granules because it is more concentrated from being dried and deoiled. It takes approximately 10 lecithin capsules to equal 1 tbsp of the lecithin granules based on the following
1 tablespoon of granules 1 lecithin capsule
1763 mg phosphatidylcholine 180 mg phosphatidylcholine
1050 mg phosphatidylinositol 102 mg phosphatidylinositol
1500 mg phosphatidylethanolamine 144 mg phosphatidylethanolamine
You may ask why anyone would want to take the capsules if the granules are more potent. A person may select a desired potency based on dietary habits as well as convenience. Some find it easier to carry capsules and take them throughout the day while some may like to add the nutty flavor to foods.
