Foods Alive's cold-pressed sunflower lecithin doesn't contain chemicals or anything artificial, is never refined, and is soy-free.
Dehydrated sunflower seed is separated into three parts, gum, oil, and solids. Sunflower Lecithin comes from the gum and is cold-pressed just like our other oils.
Sunflower lecithin has phosphatidyl choline, the most abundant phospholipid in the cell membrane, as well as other important phosphatides. While soy lecithin contains phytoestrogens, sunflower lecithin is free of it.
Lecithin aids in emulsifying fats, enabling fat and water to stay together. Please do an internet search to find out all of the great health benefits of using sunflower lecithin.
Sunflower lecithin can be used as a supplement. However, since sunflower lecithin works great as a plant-based thickener or binding agent it works great when making your favorite nut milk (or any beverage of choice), making chocolate, salad dressing, sauce, soup, or even frosting. You can even use it in bread or desserts such as cookies or cake or anything else you can think of.
