Lecithin is extracted from non-GM soybeans and consists of three types of phospholipids; phosphatidylcholine , phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphotidylinositol.

Lecithin provides an excellent source of choline, which is essential to every living cell in the body and is one of the main components of cell membranes. Not only is dietary choline important for the synthesis of the phospholipids in cell membranes, it is also necessary for methyl metabolism, cholinergic neurotransmission, transmembrane signaling, and lipid-cholesterol transport and metabolism. Without choline, the cell membranes would harden, prohibiting important nutrients from entering and leaving the cell.

Scientists believe lecithin and choline may aid in memory and cognitive function, cardiovascular health, liver function, reproduction and foetal development and physical and athletic performance.

Note on nut / soy allergy: The allergens in soybeans reside in the protein fraction of the bean. The allergenic potential of specific soyfoods and/or ingredients is largely based on processing techniques and the amount of protein or protein residue remaining in the final product5. The majority of soy lecithin used in food applications is derived from refined soybean oil that has been processed using the hot-solvent extraction technique, which eliminates most, if not all, allergenic proteins.
