1.0 out of 5 stars Has soy now - see letter from Bluebonnet.., February 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BlueBonnet 100% Natural Whey Protein Isolate Powder, Original, 2.2 Pound (Health and Beauty)
I wrote to Bluebonnet asking them if any of their products were still free of the soy lecithin and this is what they responded with:
Good morning,

Thank you for your interest in Bluebonnet Nutrition.

All of our Whey Protein Powders now contain non-GMO soy lecithin. It is a soy derived lipid necessary for the agglomeration method which enables the powder to be stirred into beverages.

Best regards,

I'm glad you posted your review. That really sucks. Soy lecithin is everywhere. Every women should avoid it (and all other soy products) like the plague. No wonder why 50% of women in America are estrogen dominant. If you don't know about estrogen dominance, google Dr. Lam and read about it. It's an epidemic.
I'm still looking for the perfect whey powder without soy. I only found BPT embryologic whey, but there's not a lot of reviews of that product and it doesn't come unflavored. If someone find one, please post it here. Thank you.

Not only that, it's not non-GMO. I've contacted the company several times and they refuse to provide documentation that their soy is non GMO: it's not organic and it's not IPP therefore it's GMO! Since 2009, all conventional soy crops have tested positive for GMO's! Blue Bonnet is in for a lawsuit and that's why they refuse to answer. Call them, write to them, and see for yourselves. These labels are probably from the late 90's and they've been too lazy and unethical to update them.

Veggie protein are usually grainy and taste bad. Also, the amino acid profile is not as ideal as whey. I think people here who were about to buy a whey protein aren't looking for veggie protein. I found one at Whole Foods (their own brand called 365).

I looked into the protein mentioned by Pen Name (Thorne brand) - sadly it has other things I have issues with also. "Natural Flavors" is often another name for MSG, we dont eat sugar of any kind (evaporated cane juice included) and I am not sure what carboxymethylcellulose gum is but I cannot pronounce it and just dislike eating things I cannot pronounce. Thanks for telling us about it - I have found that Dr Mercola's brand seems ok - I still am not crazy about things in his either but it seems to be the best - grass fed cattle also which is important to me. Most cattle have a high soy diet that bothers me - if I eat animal products from an animal that has been fed soy I have a reaction. I would not have believed it myself if I had not tested the theory on myself - someone who was allergic to eggs could all of a sudden eat eggs from chickens being free ranged and supplemented with soy free feed. I was also "allergic" to most meats (via bloodwork) - come to find out, they do their allergy test with commercial meat - fed a high soy diet. I changed to grass fed things and I am no longer even showing allergy markers to those foods anymore!
