Lecithin, Soya (Soybean)

We primarily us soya lecithin as an emulsifier in our bread recipes. It is also used as an ingredient of dough enhancers: for every cup of flour, we use 1 tsp. of soya lecithin, 1/16 tsp. vitamin C (ascorbic acid), and 1/16 tsp. of ground ginger. Lecithin is a mixture of fats: glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids. It also produced naturally in our livers, when the person is eating a healthful diet. Every cell in the body requires lecithin for building the cell walls, for without it, the walls would become hardened. Soya lecithin is extracted from soy beans using hexane and then refined. See the nutritional chart below.
