So, what is y lecitina de soja?

Y lecitina de soja, also known as soy lecithin, is a natural emulsifier derived from soybeans. It is commonly used in the food industry to improve the texture, stability, and shelf life of various products such as chocolates, baked goods, and margarine. This versatile ingredient contains phospholipids that aid in fat dispersion and can act as a surfactant to reduce surface tension between liquids. Y lecitina de soja is a popular alternative to other emulsifiers like egg yolks or milk. It is gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and has potential health benefits due to its high levels of choline, which supports brain function and liver health.
