Application benefits of sunflower lecithin

• Mix substances such as water and oils / fats, which normally cannot be mixed together

• Dissolve
powders in liquids (quickly and evenly)

the handling of the bakery dough, making them softer, less sticky and better leavened (also facilitating processing)

the crystallisation of starch (anti-staling), improving the shelf life of bakery products

Reduce viscosity
and slow down the re-crystallization of sugar in chocolate, reduce blooming

the removal of products from molds, baking nets and surfaces (essential, for example, in wafers, ice cream cones and waffles)
