Due to it’s natural sources, lecithin is a great clean label emulsifier.

If you have looked into or tried baking with a clean label, you know one of the challenges is finding a suitable emulsifier.

May I suggest, lecithin?

With natural, organic, and non-GMO lecithin products on the market, it’s easy to fit the requirements of a clean label. This is because lecithin is found naturally in many foods, such as:

  • Eggs
  • Soybeans
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Animal sources

More good news

Lecithin isn’t just a clean label solution, but a great ingredient for baked goods! It will improve texture and color, help create light and fluffy foams, act as an accelerating agent and improve machinaeblity. Plus, it can help dough last through a deep freeze.
