I've had problems in the past with confusion over terminology. Some people think that lecithin is an equivalent term for phosphatidylcholine. I just wanted to make sure what you were saying to me. Thanks for the links. From the info on this site, I'd presume that the stuff I saw was the crudest form, roughly 40% fat, 20% misc., and 40% phosphatides. I'm going to go and buy some, and see if it is palatable straight up. Looks like it's a decent source for sphyngolipids (up to 8%).

Soya lecithin provides three of the four membrane phosphatides. What's missing (less than 1%) is phosphatidylserine. Unfortunately, PS is expensive, and it is the most necessary to supplement because there aren't too many good natural sources for it.
