Cargill has a broad variety of high quality lecithins you can count on in your formulations.
Lecithin is a multi-purpose food ingredient that primarily functions as an emulsifier and dispersing agent. Lecithin is also a surfactant. Lecithin’s surface-active property can be attributed to its chemical composition: a complex mixture of phospholipids, glycolipids, carbohydrates and triglycerides. As such, lecithin interacts well with other substances in foods, such as proteins, lipids and carbohydrates.
Lecithin is prepared by extracting and purifying phospholipids from naturally occurring products such as soybeans, eggs, sunflower and canola seeds.
