So, what is lecitina?

Lecitina is a naturally occurring phospholipid found in a variety of foods such as soybeans, eggs, and sunflower seeds. It's commonly used in food manufacturing as an emulsifier, helping to blend ingredients that would otherwise separate. Lecitina has a unique molecular structure that allows it to attract both water and oil, making it an ideal ingredient for creating smooth and creamy textures in foods like chocolate, margarine, and salad dressings. Additionally, it's believed to have potential health benefits, such as improving cognitive function and reducing cholesterol levels. Lecitina is a versatile and widely used ingredient in the food industry, prized for its ability to enhance both texture and nutrition.
