Soybean lecithin is a complex mixture of phospholipids, glycolipids, triglycerides, sterols and small quantities of fatty acids, carbohydrates and sphingolipids.

The primary phospholipid components of lecithin are:

  • Phosphatidylcholine (PC) (13%-18%)
  • Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) (10%-15%)
  • Phosphatidylinositol (PI) (10%-15%)
  • Phosphatidic acid (PA) (5%-12%)

American Lecithin Company phospholipids are fractionated under GMP conditions in an ISO 9002 facility using a specific soybean lecithin feedstock. Several of our phospholipid preparations have Drug Master Files registered with the USFDA. The soybean lecithin used to produce our phospholipids has a GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) declaration from the USFDA, as well. A USP XXIII/NF monograph also exists for soybean lecithin.
