Sunflower lecithin can be seen as the best source of vegetable lecithin for the food market. It is the perfect choice to replace lecithin made from genetically modified soybeans as well as to prevent a possible allergic reaction caused by soy.
Sunflower lecithin has additional advantages such as very low odor and neutral taste, high phosphatidylcholine content and lower linolenic acid (= better stability).
An interesting aspect is the higher phosphatidylcholine (PC) content of sunflower lecithin. PC is considered the most important phospholipid, conferring the best dispersing and emulsifying properties of lecithin. The performance of sunflower lecithin is equivalent to that of soy lecithin, and its applications are identical.
