I wondered about that, too. Kellymom and Dr. Jack Newman's handout on plugged ducts both say 1200mg 4x/day. I had wanted to get the capsules coz I heard they're easier to take but the ended up getting the granules only because it says Non-GMO soy on the label (while there's no info regarding that on the bottle of capsules) When I decided on the granules I didn't pay much attention to the dose since I was sure I could figure it out how much to take any way.
