Fluid Lecithin

LECICO offers premium- lecithin products from soya, sun and rapeseed in diverse compositions of extraordinary qualities in color, transparency and emulsifying capacities. During production, the exceptional properties in terms of color, transparency and emulsifying capacity are ensured.

What properties make liquid lecithin so special?

The liquid lecithin from LECICO is very convincing due to its diverse qualities. Lecithin molecules are amphiphilic, this means that one end of the molecule is lipophilic (oil-friendly) while the other has hydrophilic (water-friendly) properties. The combination of these two opposite properties lends lecithin countless interesting active principles.

Lecithins have emulsifying properties. They help materials to mix together easily, avoid separation and achieve stable blends, such as cream-fillings, bread and cookie dough.

Liquid lecithins help to adjust the viscosity by reducing the friction between small solid particles dispersed in a liquid. In chocolate production lecithins reduce the friction between cocoa particles in the cocoa butter. They positively affect crystallization behavior by retarding crystallization and crystal growth in fatty products.

In addition, lecithin-oil mixtures often act as release agents in foods and are suitable for detaching sticky masses from pans and molds.

Fluid Soya Lecithin

Soya lecithin is the most commonly used emulsifier in the food sector. It is a surface active additive with emulsifying and dispersing properties. It can also be used as viscosity modifier, mixing facilitator, wetting agent, crystallization control agent, releasing agent, separation agent, anti-dust agent and stabilizer.

Besides the technological functions of lecithin, it has several health properties. Phospholipids are one of the essential substances in a living organism as it is one of the main building blocks of a cell membrane.

What is Lecico soya lecithin used for?

For many years LECICO soya lecithin has been successfully applied in the food production, but it is also applied in animal feed, pharmaceutical, cosmetics as well as in many industrial applications.

The functions and application areas of fluid lecithin are manifold, as emulsifier it reduces the surface tension between polar and apolar fluids, as dispersing agent it stabilizes oil/water and water/oil emulsions. It improves homogenization of blends of different ingredients when used as mixing facilitator.

Fluid Sunflower Lecithin

Sunflower lecithin is in high demand, especially in the food and health food industry. There, it is used as a natural emulsifier, wetting agent, stabilizer, release agent, antioxidant and dispersant.

Lecithin is perfectly suitable for the production of chocolate, bread, margarine, instant products, biscuits and many other food products sunflower.

Due to the fact that sunflower and soya lecithin differ only slightly in their chemical and physical composition, soya lecithin can be replaced by sunflower lecithin. Sunflower lecithin is a great alternative to soya as it is hypoallergenic, sustainable and well recognized and accepted by consumers. Worldwide no genetically modified sunflower seeds have been grown.

The pleasant taste and smell of sunflower lecithin offers versatile use in many applications.

Due to effective filtering schemes, fluid sunflower lecithins show no or only few waxes and are available in light colour and in a transparent consistency.

Fluid Rapeseed Lecithin

As a source of raw materials, rapeseed lecithin has gained in popularity in the past years, because it is used diversely in the pharmacy, food industry or in cosmetics.

What special advantage does Rapeseed Lecithin offer?

Rapeseed lecithin contains large amounts of omega-6 fatty acids, which offer significant health benefits, it has the most interesting fatty acid profile (best ratio w6: w3) among the powder lecithins available on the market. Rapeseed lecithin is a real alternative to soybean or sunflower lecithin, as it can replace both and has the benefit of not being allergenic like sunflower lecithin.

Rapeseed lecithin is a valuable product for example for the use in margarine, salad dressings, mayonnaise and bakery products.
