Specialists in soy and sunflower lecithins

Consisting of three main phospholipids: phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylthidylinositol, lecithin is the most industrially used natural emulsifier to mix substances that normally cannot be mixed together (emulsification).

In addition, its surface-active (solubility in liquids), stabilizing, anti-crystallizing, anti-staling properties (anti-aging functionaliyty in bakery products) and releasing (from baking / processing surfaces, but also in separation between slices of finished products) allow lecithin to be applied in many and diversified production processes in the food and organic food but also in non food applications (feed, calf milk replacers, aquaculture, fertilisers, biological decontamination, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, health, etc.).
