Rate my muesli, /s/

Struggling to get enough choline easily, although i lived on 10% RDA like the whole my life, given USDA database is correct.


#2

Lecithin is an easy source of choline, with a bonus of being an emulsifier.


#3

But it’d take >100g of it daily to achieve 500mg; it’s a huge pile of crappy fats that just get in the way.


#4

Here’s the lecithin I use. 15g lecithin provides 450mg choline.


#5

Thank you; it’s strange that its choline content is an order of magnitude higher than one specified in the USDA database for soy lecithin tho.


#6

You must be looking at the wrong entry. Soy lecithin is a well known excellent source of choline.

The lecithin in the USDA DB is for liquid lecithin not the dry lecithin in the above ad.

You can also go with a simple Choline Bitartrate.
