So, what is soybean lecithín?

Soybean lecithin is a natural emulsifying agent derived from soybeans. It consists of phospholipids and glycolipids, which make it an excellent stabilizer for oil-in-water emulsions. Soybean lecithin can be used in a wide range of food products, such as chocolate, baked goods, margarine, and salad dressings. In addition to its emulsifying properties, soybean lecithin also functions as a natural antioxidant, helping to prevent oxidation in many packaged foods. As a non-GMO and plant-based ingredient, soybean lecithin is a popular choice among health-conscious consumers looking for clean-label options.
