Lecithin can naturally be found in liver and other organ meats, soybeans and egg yolks, and used in foods as a fat emulsifier. It is also a rich source of B vitamins, especially Choline. Although lecithin is a fatty substance, it acts as an emulsifying agent, assisting in the breakdown of fats/cholesterol. It enables fats such as cholesterol and other lipids to be dispersed in water and removed from the body.
As consumption of these types of foods has decreased in recent years, supplementing your diet with lecithin, extracted from soybeans, is a great way to ensure a healthy intake of this important ingredient.
