Plant-based Lecithins

Lecithin is a multi-purpose plant-based emulsifier that will support your label-friendly formulations in a wide range of applications from bakery and beverages to soups and sauces.

Lecithin is the “go-to” solution for label-friendly emulsification, making it a great choice for use in chocolate, confections, bakery, sports nutrition, instant products, beverages, and more. Univar Solutions is partnered with Cargill to offer a variety of lecithin options and we have the formulation expertise to help optimize your products. Cargill also offers lecithin with high phosphatidylcholine content, which has unique functional and nutritional properties that may be suitable for dietary supplement and pharmaceutical applications.
