So, what is sunflower lecithins?

Sunflower lecithins are a natural, versatile emulsifier derived from sunflower seeds. They are a complex mixture of phospholipids, which have been extracted from the oil of the seeds. As an emulsifier, sunflower lecithins can help combine ingredients that would otherwise separate, such as oil and water. They are often used in food production to enhance texture, improve shelf life, and as a replacement for soy lecithins, which are a common allergen. Sunflower lecithins are also a great source of choline, an essential nutrient that plays a vital role in brain function and liver health.
