View Full Version : what is this soy lecithin & is it considered raw?

I found this yummy sounding recipe for chocolate chai spiced cheesecake, on a 'Raw in Vermont' raw foods blog. The last ingredient in the filling was soy lecithin ground in a coffee grinder. I'm not sure what it is or if it's considered raw. I didn't think soy products were raw, but thought I'd ask y'all what you think.

Try sunflower seed lecithin

No, it isn't raw. I've made cheesecakes and ice cream that use unbleached liquid lecithin made from soy. In the recipes I use, the liquid lecithin is the last ingredient to be blended in. I have a friend that can't have any soy, so before adding the lecithin I set some aside for her. It still tastes good, just not as good. The lecithin is an emulsifier and bonding agent. It adds a firmness and a smooth, creamier texture to the cheesecake.
I haven't tried the sunflower lecithin, yet.
