A source for sunflower granular lecithin.

This is a really specific need. I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico and love to bake bread. After years of experimenting, I've determined that the best results are yielded by adding extra gluten and granular lecithin to the dough. I have no problem with gluten, but I just finished treatment for breast cancer. As my tumor was estrogen receptive, I need to avoid soy products. The lecithin helps keep the bread moist and make it freeze better. Can anyone recommend a source for granular lecithin that is not soy based?

Thanks so much.

        I think that may be liquid -- is that okay for your recipes?

          It doesn't say gel caps, so I can try it.

            I've spent a lot of years working in natural foods stores and couldn't recall ever seeing it. Your post got me curious!

            Report back, I'm sure there are others who will benefit from your experiments!

              Thanks for the suggestion. I can see tons of possible uses for it. I've been out of town, but I'm ordering it today.
