Sunflower Lecithin Non-GMO
wish this was organic
It's good to have an alternative to non-gmo soy lecithin but if Swanson really wants to promote health they should make an effort to provide organic alternatives. Especially with this item, since organic sunflower seeds are very easy to find and reasonably priced.

For Liposomal Vitamin C
I use this to make Liposomal Vitamin C so I can give it to any of my friends without worrying about allergy/estrogen issues with soy-based products. Thanks for making a non-soy version affordable!

Best for making Liposomal Vitamin C
It works! I can't use Soy lecithin. I make Liposomal Vitamin C and Liposomal Turmeric. This is the best quality I have found.

I have been making Lypo-Spheric vitamin C for 3 years now. when I found this product I was so excited when started using it. Mixes well if you stir in slowly. I have recommended this product to everyone I know making it. Awesome Thank you Swanson.New Zealand

Prefer it to GMO soy
Good quality lecithin as far as I can tell. I believe its been processed using Hexane which is not so great, but I prefer this to messing with soy.

Making Sunflower Lecithin Dissolve
Others have mentioned that the powder has a tendency to form globules when stirred into liquid.
I had the same complaint until it occurred to me to wisk the powder in the liquid and it's as smooth as....you fill in the blank
If you wish to thank me for this idea you can do so by kissing the one you love....or anyone close by.

Worst product ever!!
This product has a very oily taste to it. I talked to my friend and he said that its probably the way they dehydrate - not very healthy method if they are using a chemical product in the process.
I plan to return this product.

Great Smoothie addition
I have learned that lecithin is great for your body, but did not want SOY lecithin. Here is a great alternative in Sunflower Seeds and they are non-GMO!

Label lacks info
The product seems fine (after one package) for making Liposomal C. It improves greatly on the taste of soy lecithin.
But the product label is a generic food label, lacking pertinent info for the product proper, such as grams per dose of phosphatidyl choline, inositol, etc. Also of interest would be which solvent was used for extraction.
It would be great if Swanson could get that info from the manufacturer and put it on the product info page.

Glad to find this product
I was looking for an non-soy, non-gmo lecithin to make liposomal vit c. It's pretty hard to locate. I'm grateful I found it at Swanson's. I wish it came in a larger size.

Hard to Find
Finding lecithin that has no soy is difficult but Swanson's sells a wonderful sunflower lecithin that tastes good and thickens my oil and vinegar nicely

great for oil free fruit salad dressings
I'm in the 'forks' over knives camp. Stopped eating all oils, including olive, coconut oil.
This stuff mixed with fruit, garlic, ginger and stevia makes an outstanding oil-free salad dressing. Not to mention putting it in my nut milk!
Way better than soy lecithin granules.

Works well for Lipo encapsulations
Wanted a soy-free means of encapsulating Vit. C and other supplements and this works well. Makes a very smooth mix after blending and retains homogeneity after encapsulating and even for several days in the refrigerator while ingesting. The taste is even not-bad. Can't really speak for the benefits of lecithin itself.

Finally this is sunflower not soy-lecithin
I really like it.

I've been a big fan of Lecithin Granules for about 5 decades. I used to chuckle when people called it Lethicin. I would say, "No, it is not a sin to take Lecithin. Remember, less fat makes you thin. The product is LECITHIN. . . . LESS-I-THIN."
When I, along with the rest of the world, became disenchanted with soy, I was very glad to find Sunflower Lecithin. It's like the dawn of a new day - - - a Sunrise, so to speak - - - SUNFLOWER LECITHIN.
I use 3 or 4 heaping tsps every day. I can either take it right off the spoon, or stir it into any liquid. I look forward to taking it every day. I like the taste, and I like using it better than the old soy lecithin granules. This is definitely an improvement all across the board.
Right here on Swanson's website, as well as countless other sources online and in reputable articles and books, you can read all the wonderful things that Lecithin does for a person, from their brain to their skin, to their liver, to their digestive and cardio vascular systems, even to promoting a better night's sleep. Personally, I find what they say to be true, because I experience all of this. Lecithin works for me, and I definitely like using this new Sunflower Lecithin much better than the old soy lecithin granules.
I highly recommend Sunflower Lecithin Granules. Actually, I don't find them to be granules at all. This product is more of a thick powder. Very nice to use. The old soy lecithin granules were definitely granules. Give Sunflower Lecithin a try. There are many, many reasons why.

The label says Granules. This is nothing like any lecithin Granules I've ever had in 40 years. This is much more like Powder than Granules. It is not near as convenient as typical Granules.

Delicious, Nutritious, and Affordable
This is yet another superb Swanson brand product---and to top it off, Swanson has cornered the market for value. I shopped for other sunflower lecithins online and they were twice or even three times the price. I had never tried sunflower lecithin before (only soy lecithin) and was hoping to avoid the soy by using this product. What I got was a nutty and absolutely delicious emulsifying powder---perfect addition for any of your smoothie/protein drink needs and even for baking. Highly rec'd this product!

i replaced the soy lecithin with this in my smoothie and it actually enhances the flavor of the smoothie and makes it taste a little like sunflower seeds. It's delicious and I'm continuing to lose weight (along with exercise and diet) so it can't be hurting!

Exellent product , good alternative to soy lesithin.
If one makes Liposomal Encapsulated Vitamin -C ,
then this is the lesithin to use .

I add this product when I'm making almond or hempseed milk. I originally ordered this product hoping that it would prevent separation of nut/seed milk, however, milk still does separate a little. Anyway, it adds additional nuttiness as well as nutrition to my homemade nut/seed milk which I like.

Great price, great quality, great product!
