"Thank you for visiting the Bigelow Tea website. You asked why there is soy lecithin in our teas.
Soy Lecithin is a component of soybean that is used in our teas as a flavor emulsifier.
Soy lecithin has always been a part of the natural flavor in some of our teas.
We hope this information is helpful to you.
