Earlier this year we added Organic Sunflower Lecithin Powder to our lineup, but now we’ve added a conventional Sunflower Lecithin Powder that is also GMO-Free!
Lecithin is a naturally occurring fatty chemical group in plant and animal cells, including our own! Some people even take it as a nutritional supplement to support and aid various functions of the human body. Sunflower Lecithin is extracted by cold-pressing the gum of a dehydrated and separated sunflower. Our all-new Sunflower Lecithin is a fine powder, yellow to brown in color, carrying a neutral aroma and odor.
Sunflower lecithin is a great alternative to soy lecithin for those looking for an allergen free option. You have likely noticed seeing lecithin listed on a wide variety of ingredient labels on items you regularly buy at your local store. In culinary and baking applications, it is used as an emulsifying agent as well as an antioxidant. Some vegan bakers even use it as a replacement for eggs! Sunflower lecithin stabilizes formulations and gives a smooth texture and body to foods like ice cream or frozen yogurt. In the cosmetic industry, it has similar purposes, to thicken and emulsify personal care products like lotions, cleansers, and creams.
