Lecithin

 
 
 

A multi-purpose and label-friendly ingredient with health benefits

 
 
 

Lecithin is somewhat of a team player. It consists of a naturally occurring mixture of phospholipids, glycolipids, neutral lipids and sugars, allowing it to interact well with other food ingredients.

By adding lecithin to food ingredients, you’ll gain the many functional benefits of lecithin, while also providing consumers with a recommended nutrient that supports good long-term health.

How We Help

Clean Label

Lecithin is found naturally in many sources, including egg yolk, and plants such as soybeans, sunflower, and rapeseed. It acts as a natural emulsifying agent with additional functional and nutritional benefits.

 
 
 

Plant-Based

Our lecithins are sourced from plants and are appropriate for plant-based formulations.

 
 
 

Better Nutrition

Lecithin from plant sources is cholesterol-free, a rich source of polyunsaturated fats and a natural source of choline.

 
 
 

Sustainability

Our lecithins are produced in SEDEX registered and GFSI certified facilities. We strive to build transparent, responsible supply chains for all our sourced materials. Our suppliers are carefully selected and comply with the DuPont Supplier Code of Conduct.

Our lecithin supports at least three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
