Lecithin Granules (Non-GMO)
Less than Satisfied
Let me start by saying I love Swanson. I place an order every month. I have been happy with Swanson brands.......except lecithin. It was a darker color, a stronger taste and a gooier consistency than the other brands of lecithin granules I have used. (I've been adding lecithin granules to my breakfast for 25 years)
If Swanson ever reformulates I hope they will send me a notice of the new and improved lecithin. I trust the company and am happy with all my other purchases.

Bought to create liposomal vitamin C
Look up on the web -plus several Youtube sites- and learn how to make liposomal vitamin C and why. With all the many health scares out there the more knowledge you have in keeping yourself well, the better. I have used the Swanson Liposomal several times so far and am very pleased. I love that it is GMO-free... a must! Monsanto and Mr Bill Gates may not be happy, but I always try to go GMO-free inspite of them!! The shipment came quickly and was packed well. You'll be happy with this product. Pls, do your own research -but- I think you will start making liposomal vitamin C once you do! Stay well!

I was worried that I'd get an old batch but when it arrived, it was fresh and of good quality. The taste is pretty good too. I add it to protein shakes or eat it plain. I plan to buy this Swanson brand from now on as it is not over priced and is of comparable quality to more expensive brands.

Excellent value for lecithin granules
Reading other reviews, I was worried that lecithin may be brown or taste funny (I'm used to the yellow granules) but I took a chance and ordered, motivated by Swanson's return policy and unbeatable price (less expensive than Amazon and other online stores I visited). I wasn't disappointed.
The granules are small and dark yellow but they taste very good. The typical slightly nutty lecithin taste that you take as a supplement or sparkle on your food. I liked it so much that I ate two spoons by itself on the first day. Effective product.
The 3-lbs format offers excellent value and Swanson shipped my order faster than I ever expected. I ordered on Saturday and it arrived on Monday or Tuesday. Will buy again... when I run out (it may take a while).

great for getting to sleep
For several years, there is no better way I have found for getting to sleep and having a good night's sleep than to take a level tablespoon of lecithin granules soaked in a few ounces of water before bed.

We have been adding one tablespoon of granules to whole grain non-GMO cereal as well as smoothies for a nutty flavor for years. A recent batch was brown and harder than the light tan and soft granules we are accustomed to receiving.

Returned it for a refund
Was a darker color than normal, and had a slightly "off" smell. Also didn't taste quite right. Tasted "burnt" in a way. (I purchased it mid-December 2013, by the way.)
I returned it for a refund and ordered some Now Brand (which looked, smelled, and tasted good).

Best tested non GMO lecithin granules
After long search of non GMO lecithin granules, finally I found this brand is the best tested granules so far. I have been buying this for many years now and am enjoying everyday in my morning breakfast cereal. I also use it in my fresh bread dough instead of oil.

Easy way to take Lecithin
I have a hard time swallowing pills, even the smallest, so I thought that the lecithin granules might be a good alternative. I was very happy with these. They are pretty much tasteless, and you can add them to just about anything. Nice to see the non-GMO claim so prominent on the front of the container, too. I'd recommend these to anyone that takes lecithin.

Great Health Food!
Lecithin is a great food additive to make your diet more alkaline because it is a very alkaline health food. You can easily mix it with many foods, and it will bring out a better flavor in those foods. Stir it into oatmeal to give it more taste. Add it to your salads (it will convert an oil dressing into a creamy dressing). Add it to meatloaf. If you buy natural peanut butter, you can stir in lecithin to prevent the peanut oil from separating to the top of the jar. Even the large plastic containers are useful for other purposes when they're empty.

It does have a different taste, but I like it. I add it to my granola cereal or yogurt smoothie.

Quality Product. Does not smell rancid when you open the container, granules are fresh and actually improve the quality of several recipes that I use by giving an emulsifying effect, not to speak of the benefit of lecethin to the body .

Absolutely great product...
I've been using this product for several years and am so glad it's now GMO. Not sure what results I've noticed, if any, but I do know lecithin is very good for you.
Thanks and have a great day!!

This lecithin is everything that a good source of the lipids in lecithin should be. We are using this for several health applications/needs, and it is high quality and economical...typical of Swanson products.

Use this daily
Easy to take a scoop and put it in a blended drink each day. I think everyone would benefit by using this product daily. Why? For me, it regulates and controls the flow of nutrients, as well as waste materials, in and out of cells.

They were to hard
This is one of the first product I was completely unsatisfied with. The lecithin granules were so hard they only way the could be used is in boiling water. I really should have return them :-(

I have been useing this product for a few years now . I put it in my oatmeal every morning. I also shake some onto many other foods. It does not change the taste of the food I am eating. I will continue to use it. I find it to be a good product and this large container makes it quite economical.
You can read for yourself online what lecithin is good for. I find it helpful.

Out of 3 places I looked for bulk lecithin granules, including a major health store and another well known online company, this was the only product that did contain ingredients derived from the use of GMOs. I have found the granules very beneficial for my skin. They taste good and emulsify smoothies to give them a fabulous consistency. We also use the granules in making lypospheric vitamin C, which I use as a topical application under my evening moisturizer.

Non GMO lecithin at a great price
I use this product daily and it is very good quality. It's fresh and I like that it is non GMO and labelled. Not all of them are and you don't know what you're getting. This is a very good value and I will keep ordering from Swanson's.

powder, not granules
Product claims to be granules, but more than a third is powder; doubt product will have same effectiveness. The NOW product is far superior, but since I bought six pounds I am in for a lot of powder. Sad day for me and Swanson, using what appears to be leftovers from the factory floor.

Really very good
This product help me very much !!

Non GMO is important to me and I like what lecithin does for my smoothies. It also adds a satisfaction to the fullness I feel when I using it. It is part of my daily nutrition. I think this is a great value.

Good stuff. Tastes good too. Something like malt added to a chocolate milkshake.

A Good Product
I started using this product because of its NON GMO
rating and so far I am quite satisfied with it. It is a good product and a good value.
The one thing that I do not care for is that there is a considerable amount of powder in the container which is very hard to mix with orange juice. I would prefer that it be only granules without the powder or at least a lot less powder than the 3 lbs contains.
I have recomended Swanson's Vitamins and Supplements to many of my friends and also to many aquaintances. Many of which have told me they are happy with the products.
