Soy Lecithin Vs Soybean Oil
Absolutely: Alimentum and nutramigen are the first two that are readily available that come to mind. They are a bit more expensive, but very easy to digest and no soy anything. They don't taste as good, so if the baby scoffs at eating them, can put one drop of vanilla in the entire bottle to flavor. ...Read more
Is soy safe during pregnancy? Should i avoid anything with soy, like soybean oil, soy sauce, & soy lecithin? Read that estrogen in soy can affect baby
Soy is ok: Too much can be a problem like anything else. It is best to read labels and look for non gmo soy (90% is genetically engineered). Soy can have estrogenic affects. It is better to avoid if you know you have a boy. If youdo not know the sex, be sensible...Read labels and do not overdo. You do not need to avoid everything with soy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
4 wks pregnet.why is it bad to take soy lecithin if iam having a boy? What do estogen levels have anything to do with that? Is soy lecithin capsuls ok
Stay safe: avoid: No hard scientific evidence is available or known about the use of lecithin during pregnancy. Many would be very conservative and say to avoid supplementation during pregnancy. Discuss use of this and other supplements with your OB. I wouldn't worry about the soy intake and association with phytoestrogen-endocrine disruption. ...Read more

Probably not: We generally do not instruct patients with soy allergy to avoid soy lecithin. Processed soybean oil is considered safe in patients with soy allergy. No cure for food allergy is available. Strict avoidance of the food allergen is the only therapeutic option. There are some experimental strategies on the horizon, though, such as oral, sublingual, and subcutaneous immunotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there a healthy, or at least not unhealthy, source of lecithin for stabilizing? I have a bad feeling about soy lecithin because of soy estrogens.
There is no known: medical benefit to taking lecithin in any form. What are you attempting to "stabilize". Lecithin won't do it. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more
2y baby ate 1 tsp nutella containing soy lecithin and no allergy at all,this means no favism?don't 've to make sure with test? Can safely eat beans?
About favism...: Surviving a meal of Nutella is not a test for favism (G6PD deficiency). The G6PD test is a simple blood test that any lab can do. The result is a percentage (for example: 20% would mean the person has only 20% of the G6PD that an average normal person has). If deficient, broad beans such as fava beans are a no-no. People may want to avoid other legumes and beans; some beans are worse than others. ...Read more
For 8-10 years, I supplemented with a high dosage of soy lecithin for its cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic benefits. Recently this is not popular. Is it likely I did any damage? No symptoms.
No harm done: Soy products are healthy, yet there is always some controversy about all good nutrients , off and on. You should eat a healthy diet with ample amount of fruits, grains and veggies and avoid excess of animal fats. Top it up with more physical activity(walk daily) and you will not have to worry about taking any supplements!!. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Girl, 6, allergic to nuts 40, 80 kua/l, soy 4, 62 kua/l and others.
Should we avoid soy lecithin? What about food that "may contain traces of soy"?
Lecithin is safe.: Now for the "traces of soy" question: it all depends on the reaction that triggered the soy allergy discovery. If she had a severe reaction when she ate something which contained soy, then you have to be careful with those products. Be extra careful. They are warning you. Would you feed it to her if it said "this may poison your child." now, if her reactions were mild, see comment below. ...Read more
I had a healthy shake that had soy lecithin in it will that cause high estrogen and breast cancer I'm worried?
A Shake: One shake is not going to alter your risk for anything. Soy lecithin is not a harmful substance anyway and is not a risk factor for breast cancer or any other disease. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Are foods cooked in soybean oil bad for men? I heard soy products are not good for men. Same for soybean oil? Thank you.
Too much is no good: Soy products have been dietary staples in asia for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Soy can contain compounds that affect thyroid function, and can be mildly estrogenic. Excessive intake, especially of processed soy products, e.g. Texturized soy protein, as opposed to natural sources like edamames, tofu, tempeh, could conceivably be a problem; mostly not. Soy oil doesn't have those chemicls. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take a natures made multivitamin that contains soy lithium and soybean oil. Will this cause ED and infertility in men?
Unlikely: I know of no evidence for such a causal relationship. The amount of soy in a multivitamin is unlikely to cause either ED or infertility. Both the coreg (carvedilol) and the clonodine you are taking can lower BP, and clonodine has known side effects that affect sexual function. Talk with your doctor about side effects of your meds, and consider a consult with a health psychologist if symptoms persist. ...Read more
Cooked? : Perhaps you mean when they are dry and hard, right from the field. Soy beans and derivative products such as tofu are a mainstay foodstuff for millions of people, especially in asia. They are served at local restaurants in the form of edamame, which is quite good. They have been cooked. This is no different than oats or wheat straight from the field. ...Read more
