Where can I buy Lecithin - East Bay

I know there's got to be a place to buy lecithin in/around Berkeley - I found one post saying I could get it at Berkeley Bowl West but didn't see it there.

I got an iSi Mini Whip and want to make a foam this weekend -

    I haven't looked for or noticed it at the new Berkeley Bowl (West) but they seemed to consistently have it at the old Berkeley Bowl in the refrigerator case near the front of the bulk section with the chow mein noodles and mustard. There is probably an equivalent location in the new place that I haven't noticed yet.

      You can get it at The Food Mill on MacArthur.

      At Berekeley Bowl West it is in the refrigerated section next to the olive bar and across from the organic produce. It is in plastic bags in the same case with the pasta and noodles. If you don't see it, ask for it as they may have more in back ... or upstairs or wherever they keep extra stuff there.
