Soy and sunflower lecithin for the chocolate industry


Linfa is supplying NON GMO soy and sunflower lecithins for the chocolate industry. Our lecithins are mainly from European origin, high quality and safe.

Lecithin is the natural additive, emulsifier and antioxidant, one of the most used in the food industry (with E322 EC number), especially in industrial confectionery and chocolate-based confectionery products: bars, icing, fillings, spreadable pastes and chocolate.
One of the main characteristics that has determined its application success (with decisive improvement both in the manufacturing processes and in the quality of the finished product) is certainly the ability to deeply lubricate the cocoa, sugar and fat particles, thanks to which fluid compounds are obtained, homogeneously smooth and with low viscosity, limiting the use of cocoa butter.
Present on the market for almost 20 years, Linfa Srl is specialised in the production and marketing of soy lecithins and sunflower lecithins for the chocolate industries and guarantees the supply of high quality products, well controlled and analised and including organic certification, if requested.
