Lecithin is a naturally occurring compound found in all cells in nature, plant and animal. It plays a major role in almost all biological processes - including nerve transmission, breathing and energy production. The word Lecithin is taken from the Greek Lekithos, which means "egg yolk". A fitting name for this essential nutrient, for the egg is considered a symbol of life, strength and fertility. Lecithin is important for all of these biological functions and more. Our brain is approximately 30% Lecithin. The insulating myelin sheaths that protect the brain, spine and thousands of miles of nerves in your body are almost two-thirds Lecithin. Even the heart has a high concentration of Lecithin. Lecithin is composed of many different components, including choline, inositol, linoleic acid, phosphatidylserine, beneficial fatty acids and triglycerides. These valuable constituents of Lecithin are vital for the proper functioning of many metabolic processes.*

Netrition.com automatically does the math and displays the number of
calories that have not been accounted for in the fat, protein, and
carbohydrate macronutrient totals. In other words, since we know traditional
carbohydrates contain 4 calories per gram, protein contains 4 calories per gram and fat contains 9 calories
per gram, we compute what the total number of calories should be and display any
discrepancy as Unaccounted Calories meaning that there appears to be
extra calories in the product that are not being reported within the carbohydrate,
protein and fat values.
