A Versatile, Functional Material Derived from Soybean Oil

Today's lecithin products are valuable processing aids in food preparation and a wide range of industrial applications. ALC's products, including standard, modified refined, de-oiled and fractionated lecithin, are derived by extracting and purifying phospholipids from crude soybean oil.

Most performance benefits of lecithin come from the unique surface-active properties of phospholipids. As molecules, phospholipids contain hydrophobic and hydrophilic elements. The hydrophobic portion has an affinity for fats and oils. The hydrophilic portion has an affinity for water.
