So, what is rapeseed lecithins?

Rapeseed lecithin is a natural emulsifier derived from the seeds of the rapeseed plant. It is commonly used in the food industry to improve the texture and consistency of various food products. This versatile ingredient is a rich source of phospholipids, which makes it an excellent choice for stabilizing emulsions, preventing separation, and enhancing the shelf life of foods. Additionally, rapeseed lecithin is non-GMO, gluten-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans, making it a popular alternative to animal-derived emulsifiers. Its mild taste and odor make it a preferred choice in many applications, including baked goods, confectionery, and dairy products.
