What is soy lecithin used for?

Soy Lecithin known as the most important is “Natural Emulsifiers” Lecithin has amphiphilic molecules with hydrophilic nitrogen- or phosphorus-containing head at one tail, and a long hydrophobic (lipophilic) hydrocarbon-based chain at the other. For this reason, the hydrophilic tail of molecules are close to each other, and the hydrophobic tails are close to each other too. this makes it linked with other molecules such as proteins, glycolipids, and cholesterol. It can constitute a lipid bilayer as the structure of the cell membrane. It is the main component of all membranous structures in cells.


Used in the Food industry:

Emulsifiers agents, Wetting agents, Viscosity modifiers, Dispersant agents, Mold Release aids agents, Surfactants agents raw material

Used in the Feed industry:

Emulsifier: in the animal milk replacer aid fat and protein dispersion in water.

Dust reducer: reduce dust from dry powder feed and help various ingredients to bond.

Bulk pellets: to offer emulsification and wettability for feed production, Enhances pellet structure

Used in the Pharmaceutical industry:

Lecithin has the functions of emulsifying and decomposing oil, which can promote blood circulation, improve serum lipids, remove peroxides, reduce the content of cholesterol and neutral fat in the blood, reduce the residence time of fat in the inner wall of blood vessels, and promote atherosclerotic plaques. dissipated, preventing damage to the vascular intima caused by cholesterol. Taking lecithin has a significant effect on hyperlipidemia and hypercholesterolemia, so it can prevent and treat arteriosclerosis (hypertension, myocardial infarction, cerebral hemorrhage)


Used in painting producing, explosive materials, oil drilling field, etc.
