No salt, sugar, or preservatives-- just pure, raw sunflower lecithin, cold-pressed from sunflower seeds without using harsh chemicals. Sunflower lecithin is packed with choline and phosphatidylcholine, both of which are tougher to get on vegetarian and vegan diets.
A two-tablespoon serving provides 99% of your daily value of choline, a nutrient that’s essential for a healthy brain, lowers “bad” LDL cholesterol, and detoxes the liver. Phosphatidylcholine is a healthy fat that prevents gallstones and acts as an antioxidant, fighting cancer and cell aging. Lecithin also helps remove excess fats and blood clots from the bloodstream and reduces risk of arthritis by lubricating the joints.
Sunflower lecithin works great as a thickener for cooked and raw dressings, sauces, soups, and frostings. It also improves texture and acts as a binder in breads and desserts, especially raw or eggless recipes. Bring sunflower lecithin along on your next kitchen adventure-- when the cooking gets crazy, it’ll hold things together!
NOTE: Blue Mountain Organics™ does not make the lecithin.
FUN FACT! If you’re into all-natural molecular gastronomy, a little bit of sunflower lecithin is a great way to stabilize fancy foams and mousses.
