So, what is émulsifiant lecithines de tournesol?

Lecithin is a naturally occurring fat found in plants and animals, including sunflowers. As an emulsifier, it helps mix ingredients that wouldn't normally combine, such as oil and water. Sunflower lecithin is extracted from sunflower seeds, making it a popular choice for those with soy allergies. Besides its emulsifying properties, sunflower lecithin is also used to improve texture and increase shelf life in many food products, including baked goods, chocolate, and salad dressings. Its mild flavor makes it a versatile ingredient in both sweet and savory recipes.
