DuPont Nutrition&Health offers a wide range of lecithins that deliver the functionality our customers need. Although the word lecithin is derived from the Greek "lekithos," which means "yolk of an egg," the primary sources of our lecithins are the soybean, sunflower or rapeseed, and they set the standard for quality and reliability.
Lecithin consists of a naturally occurring mixture of phospholipids, glycolipids, neutral lipids and sugars, which allows it to interact well with other ingredients in food, Lecithin serves as a multi-purpose functional ingredient or a processing aid and also provides consumers with recommended nutrients.
