Raw Sunflower Lecithin ~ by Love Raw Foods!
Unlike soy lecithin, Sunflower Lecithin is a 100% un-heated liquid using a cold pressing extraction (no heat) similar to what is used to obtain Olive Oil from Olives. Sunflower Lecithin is the only kind of lecithin that can be obtained raw, chemical and SOY FREE.
Raw, organic sunflower seed lecithin naturally contains a high level of choline, which breaks up cholesterol in the body and it is vital for the proper functioning of the brain.
Choline is very important for the healthy development of the brain and it aids in the detoxification of the liver aswell as providing vital nutrients calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium, iron, zinc, and copper.
Sunflower lecithin is useful in maintaining normal cholesterol levels as part of a low cholesterol diet.

a gleeful goodbye to soy Review by Heather
Value Quality Price
I am so grateful to find this sunflower lecithin. I love how lecithin makes my raw smoothies so creamy and I'm conscious that it's the only source of choline so it's a huge relief not to have to use soy to get those benefits. Soy is iffy for several reasons but I've been especially troubled by its oestrogenic properties because like so many women, I have hormonal imbalance and regular use of soy make it worse. So I'm really pleased with this sunflower lecithin, it's the answer to a smoothie-loving middle aged woman's prayer! (Posted on 24/08/2011)
Soya Free and Delightfully creamy tasty lecithin Review by Puregaia
Quality Price Value
After looking for soya free lecithin, I was amazed and relieved to come across this sunflower lecithin variety. The product is top quality, and imbues a creamy consistency when blended into your raw food creations. It has a great flavour, yet it is not over powering on any other flavours of the dish you are making. It delightfully thickens your raw food meals. A lecithin that ticks all the boxes!
