Further Information

Lysolecithin  is partially hydrolyzed (enzyme modified) lecithin in whose phospholipids a fatty acid has been spun off. Lysophospholipids are present as natural phospholipid components of low concentrations, primarily as 1-acyl phospholipids, in lecithin or are enriched through dedicated processes.

The increase in the hydrophilic compounds in lysophosphatidylcholine improves its emulsification properties for oil-in-water emulsions. Partially hydrolyzed lecithin types with 20% lyso-PC have been proven effective in boosting the wetting capabilities, solubility and stabilization of emulsions in food product and animal feed. They offer interesting applications in pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulations as well.

Lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) of higher concentrations and of high purity is suitable for special pharmaceutical purposes.
