Also, I've seen "soy lecithin" listed as an ingredient, does this have the same impact as soy isolate would have? Thanks
Well, Low carb anything grain usually means that Instead of Wheat and other grains, you would replace it with Soy proteins and soy flours.... Therefore lowering the Carbohydrates....
But, if you get rid of the soy and bring the wheat back into it, you raise the carbs back up....
Kashi makes great bars, but I'm almost certain that they have soy in them... so does fiber one bars by general mills..
R u allergic to soy? or did you hear that soy was bad for you or something?
i also tend to steer clear of soy unless its in low fat flour or organically sprouted, GMo free.
Since I came across the forum while looking for soy-free options, and I appreciate all of the help from the calore count forums, I thought I would post a link to this article which lists some good soy-free bar options:
The good news is, the "organic food bar" which is listed first is available at some kroger brand gorcery stores, as well as Trader Joe's, the others may be as well, I"m excited to try them all out as a soy-bar alternatives.
you can go to a gnc and ask the rep to point you in the direction of where is the protein bars/shakes that are not soy based and they do have them that aren't high in the carbs and cals because ive done just that and asked, it is i just can not remember the names. However they are a bit pricey. I steer clear of soy myself because it is not good for you. But almost everything has traces of soy in it now a days, I would just steer clear from the soy based ones.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
