Cargill introduces canola lecithin for label-conscious consumers
MINNEAPOLIS - Dec. 20, 2016 – Cargill is expanding its line of emulsifiers with the addition of deoiled canola lecithin. With today’s announcement, Cargill now offers customers three plant-sourced lecithin options – soy, sunflower and canola – in the U.S. and Canada . Cargill’s canola lecithin helps food manufacturers deliver product attributes consumers increasingly seek as it is a non-GMO option, may be used in organic products and does not have to be declared as a major food allergen.
A versatile emulsifier and dispersing agent, Cargill’s canola lecithin may be used in a wide variety of food applications, including chocolate and confectionery, bakery and convenience foods. Dispersibility as well as functionality, taste and color are very comparable to soy and sunflower lecithin. As a result, Cargill’s canola lecithin may be used as a one-to-one replacement for other lecithin types, making it easy for food manufacturers to incorporate into their product lines with only minor adaptations.
