Purified Proteins

I know, "if it has a label don't eat it," but, I have found these cracker replacement Flackers. They have purified Soy protein. Wouldn't that simply be protein (the amino acids) without the lecithins and other "inflammatory" items?

I think you are confusing lecithin and lectins.

Excessive heat destroys the peptides themselves, not just cleaves them.

possibly. what about the fact that its just a completely processed, denatured product. Its like a toy or something. In no way is that food, ie something that will nourish your body.

One correction: denaturing of proteins from heat is not an issue. Our digestive enzymes cleave proteins into peptides of varying lengths, allowing intestinal absorption of those peptides (or even single amino acids).

No boxes, no labels, seriously

Where did you find reference to it being "purified soy protein"?

Well do we know what purified protein means ? Is it a measurable thing backed up with papers or just a marketing gimmick ?

Would Grok have even recognized them as food? If "no" or "probably not" is the answer, there's your answer.

Flackers have "Vegetable Protein from Soybeans" which is not specific enough to tell it's contents. I didn't see any reference to "purified soy protein" in relation to their product.

But with that said, "purified soy protein" still has many of the same issues as unprocessed soy such as, but not limited to, phytoestrogens.

See previous questions for more details regarding soy.

To start you off, a quote from Eva in PaleoHacks: What???s so bad about soy?

Processing into soy protein isolate ameliorates some of these problems but not all. Plus the processing methods leach aluminum into the final product and the high heat denatures much of the proteins, thereby making them unusable to the human body. And the spray drying process creates a large percentage of nitrites which are believed to be carcinogens.


Remember it's just a little fake cracker. Don't stress if it's the random treat. The Japanese have survived, fairly healthily, with fermented soy for centuries.

But I'd go for some tastier substitutes: PaleoHacks: Substitute for crackers?. My choice is red bell pepper or a dried meat.

I believe the soy protein itself is inflammatory. I basically avoid soy as much as I can, with the exception of wheat free tamari.
