Organic deoiled sunflower lecithin is a dark yellow-to-brown colored powder that functions as an emulsifier, wetting agent, stabilizer, instantizing agent, release agent, lubricant, antioxidant and dispersant in a variety of applications including food and beverage, cosmetics and pet food. It is easier to handle and incorporate into dry mixes for many manufacturers compared to liquid lecithin, and can often be applied at a dosage rate up to thirty percent less.
When fluid lecithin is dried, it creates a concentrated form of powdered lecithin with a higher percentage of phospholipids and acetone insolubles — a measure of the surface active properties. Organic sunflower lecithin is popular in applications where allergen sensitivity is a consideration. Use sunflower lecithin powder in baking mixes, frozen dough systems for crystal control, or in dry nutritional drink mixes for instantizing and improving mixability with liquids.
Conventional non-GMO deoiled sunflower lecithin powder is also available.
