Lecithin for bakery products


Linfa produces and distributes high quality lecithins for bakery applications, from NON-GMO origin and organic, if required. For the past 20 years, we have been dealing with the marketing of additives and ingredients for the food and non-food, dietary, cosmetic, feed, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Bakery products are certainly one of the major sectors of application of lecithins and the reasons are mainly two: they are natural additives and have multiple functions.
Used for frozen dough, cakes, wafers, biscuits, ice cream cones and waffles, crackers, bread, mixes for pizzas, semi-finished products for bakery and pastry, etc. lecithins may improve the handling of bakery doughs, reducing the stickiness of final products, increasing the shelf life, reducing the amount of fat to be used and guaranteeing a more homogeneous mixing of the ingredients. Finally, they also improve the release from the baking nets and molds.
For 20 years, Linfa has been involved in the production and distribution of natural ingredients and additives and offers to the bakery companies a large range of soy and sunflower lecithins, ensuring high quality products, and a flexible service, with fast and on time deliveries.

Lecithin production for bakery products

Many years of experience in this sector allows us to guarantee our customers a 360° service (raw material procurement - production - finished product delivery), guaranteeing tailor made technical and commercial support at every stage.

Firmly convinced that the quality and safety of our products is an essential aspect, before being marketed, all our lecithins are subjected to complete chemical analysis in Italian or European laboratories.

Advantages of using lecithins in the bakery applications:

• Softness and Shelf Life. They reduce the tendency of starch to recrystallize, (antistaling) preserving the softness and freshness of the dough for a long time. Taste is positively affected by the use of lecithin.

• Volume. The lipid-protein interaction improves the structure and the softness of the dough, guaranteeing a more homogeneous baking and a good volume increase.

• Emulsification. As a natural surfactant, it improves the mixing of the ingredients, ensuring homogeneous and soft doughs.

• Handling and Workability. By improving the parameters of elasticity, extensibility, resistance, homogeneity and stickiness, the lecithins facilitate the workability of the dough by reducing the use of fats and also ensuring more homogeneous baking.

• Releasing. Applied on the cooking surfaces, it facilitates the release of the dough, resulting in less degradation of the production systems and faster cleaning.
