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.
Our Lecithin Range
We have over 60 years of experience as a global supplier of high-quality lecithin products. Our SOLEC® lecithin range consists of high-quality plant-based lecithins, including de-oiled, fluid, fractionated, non-GMO, and soft seed options. We also offer lecithins especially developed for pet food, which are sold under the ENHANCE® brand.
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.
Our lecithins are sourced from plants and are appropriate for plant-based formulations.
Lecithin from plant sources is cholesterol-free, a rich source of polyunsaturated fats and a natural source of choline.
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 Nutrition & Biosciences Supplier Code of Conduct.
Our lecithin supports at least three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
