Fluid lecithin is an all-natural product with numerous applications and benefits. It’s a wonderful processing aid during food production and has many uses for industrial applications as well. Our portfolio includes natural lecithin products which embrace a wide range of colors, viscocities, clarity tones, and functionalities.
Our lecithin fluid is produced from soy, sunflower seeds, and rapeseed sources. These exceptional lecithin products are both water and lipid friendly, surface active, and highly synergetic. This ensures that materials mix well and do not separate. It also helps to form an optimal stable blend in the final product.
Fluid lecithin works well as a natural antioxidant, wetting agent, and stabilizer. It’s also a great emulsifier, dispersant, and much more.
Soy lecithin products have been vital in the production of food, but also for nutraceuticals, cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, in feed and technical applications.
Soy lecithin is the most common natural emulsifier in the food industry. It’s a surfactant with a wide range of useful properties: as a stabilizer, wetting agent, a disperser, an emulsifier, a viscosity adjustor, a mixing aid, a release agent, anti-lumping agent, or as an antioxidant. As an added bonus functionality is supplemented by the nutritive properties of the phospholipids contained in lecithin. As the central building blocks of the cell membranes, phospholipids have a strong influence on the structure and the metabolism of the cells, and thus on the health of humans as a whole.
Fluid lecithin’s functional range of applications is diverse: as a stabilizer – it upholds oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions; as a dispersant it provides for a better, more even distribution of fats; as a mixing aid – it overlooks homogenization of the blends; as an emulsifier – keeps steady, consistent alliances between water and fat molecules. In addition Fluid Lecithin is irreplaceable as a wetting agent, antioxidant, instantizing agent, lubricant, and a release agent.
In comparison to soy, sunflower is hypoallergenic, IP sustainable and safe. Just the fact that Sunflower does not have any Genetic Modifications is a huge relief for consumers, and undoubtedly a factor which they notice and approve. No Genetically Modified sunflower kernels have ever been grown. The good natural taste and smell of sunflower lecithin makes it attractive for use in a variety of ways. Sunflower lecithin is ideally suited to replace soy lecithin due to a comparable phospholipid and fatty acid composition. It is a marketing advantage to have Sunflower Lecithin on your label.
The use of sunflower lecithin in the food and nutraceutical industry is multivarious: it can be used as a natural emulsifier, wetting agent, stabilizer, release agent, antioxidant and dispersant. Sunflower lecithin is optimal for the production of chocolate, bread and pastry products, margarine, instant products, biscuits and many other foods.

Protection of cells in the body
Phospholipids are lipid-protein complexes that bind together to form a membrane that surrounds every living cell in the body, serving at their most basic level, to keep the cell’s contents in good conditions. Phospholipids are involved in almost all essential bio functions from neurotransmission to signal transduction to moisture management, to cell metabolism. PHOSPHOLIPIDS are involved in a mass volume of metabolic processes such as nerve function, blood clotting, cholesterol metabolism, fat absorption, and blood clotting. They are substances vital to the human body. All cells in the human body contain phospholipids, making them vital to human health. That is why, it is of outmost importance, to support our cells with supplemental Phospholipids, delivered to us in nourishing form.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) – Enriched Soy, Rape, and Sunflower Lecithins
Over the past years, a mounting amount of evidence has been presented to support the fact that phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a major participant in the process of metabolism.
Phosphatidylcholines PC can help the body metabolize fat and cholesterol
Phosphatidylcholines PC Supplies polyunsaturated fatty acids
Phosphatidylcholines PC Has re-fattening effect in dermatological products
Phosphatidylcholines PC stabilizes and optimizes the structure of cell membranes.
Phosphatidylcholin PC promotes cell protection in general, especially the protection of liver cells.
Phosphatidylcholines PC is used preventively for liver disorders, particularly in people with surplus of dietary fat, and intake of too much alcohol.
Avalec’s NGM lecithins are not subject to labeling since they are obtained from conventional soybeans; their origin and Genetic identity has been fully documented, audited and certified, by an IP system in which the original seeds are identified. In addition, PCR analysis results are provided for further protection. Each warehousing and logistic operation is also documented, audited and certified. This effort in total, ensures that labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on the products in Foods and Feeds, produced from Lecital’s NGM lecithin is extraneous. We go a long way to make sure, that the purchase contracts are agreed exclusively with certified manufacturers, so that the lecithin identity can be traced from the origin of the seed to the ready-packed barrel or IBC container. All individual components such as sowing, harvesting and storage, as well as the various production stages and, of course, all logistical delivery routes are subject to strict controls and analytical investigations, so that the path from the bean to the final finished product, the lecithin, is in full compliance with legal legislation.
All of the above is Non-Applicable to Sunflower derived products, since luckily for all of us, Sunflower has not been Genetically Modified by anyone in the world.
We offer organic lecithin and other organic derivatives originated from soy and sunflower.
