Oil Production


Anti-oxidation of lecithin has been applied in oil production at present. Experiments show that the content of lecithin in oil ≥02% can significantly improve the antioxidant activity of rapeseed oil, sunflower oil and soybean oil.


Fermented Food


Deoiled lecithin used as growth promoter can improve the fermentation speed of fermented products and can be used in the production of fermented food. Such as bread and cake making. Experiments show that the addition of 0.3~0.8% lecithin can significantly increase the activity of yeast and Lactococcus.
