So, what is soy-bean lecithin?

Soybean lecithin is a natural emulsifier and stabilizer derived from soybeans. It is commonly used in food manufacturing to prevent ingredients from separating and to improve texture and consistency. Soybean lecithin is also found in many dietary supplements due to its potential health benefits, such as reducing cholesterol levels and supporting liver function. This versatile ingredient can be used in a wide range of products, including baked goods, chocolate, and salad dressings. As an allergen-free alternative to egg yolks, it has become a staple in vegan and vegetarian cooking.
