LECICO presents new sunflower and soy lecithin products

LECICO, a highly specialized international supplier of lecithin with over 30 years of experience, presents new sunflower and soy lecithin products. LECICO customers can choose from a diverse range of lecithins made from soy, sunflower, rapeseed and milk for many types of applications.

Lecithins are outstanding for their dual function: on the one hand they have excellent technological and functional benefits and guarantee safe use; one the other, their strengths are their nutritional value and their natural character.
The deoiled sunflower fine powder LECICO SUN FP 400 offers versatile use in many applications. It is non allergenic, light yellow in colour and is high concentrated in phospholipids and other active substances such as glycolipids. This leads to neutral odour and taste in applications, due to the removal of the non-polar lipids contained in the fluid lecithin. As the phospholipids are highly concentrated in LECICO SUN FP 400, the dosage requirements are lower than in a fluid lecithin.

LECICO SUN G 400 is a non-allergenic deoiled sunflower lecithin granule and is launched together with LECICO G 700 IP: Both deoiled lecithin granules are light tan to medium yellow in colour for use in various health supplements, functional food systems or as direct consumption. They are high bioavailable sources of phospoholipids and provide a broad range of nutritional benefits for consumers. The deoiled lecithins are natural sources of choline that is important for liver function, proper brain function and maintaining a healthy metabolism.
