Sunflower lecithin

Wednesday, 01 April, 2009 | Supplied by: Cargill Australia

Cargill is introducing Topcithin SF, a clean label, non-GM, sunflower lecithin that does not require labelling as an allergen. Topcithin SF is commercialised in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia–Pacific, with distribution in the Americas following soon.

Topcithin SF is available in the high level grade ‘Premium’ as offered by the Cargill Lecithin Toolbox, which is a grading system that helps food processors navigate through the complexities involved in the quality specifications of lecithins.

Cargill’s product and segregation systems are designed to address the risk of inadvertent cross-contamination by GM/soy/rape or other potential allergens. Cargill does this by maintaining full control of the supply chain from the sunflower seeds being crushed in the company’s Donetsk, Ukraine, plant to final processing on a dedicated line in Vigonza, Italy.

Manufacturers will not only have a clean label, non-GM lecithin, but one that matches soy lecithin in functionality, taste and colour. Topcithin SF can also replace synthetically produced emulsifiers, such as ammonium phosphatide and citric acid esters of mono and di-glycerides, without compromising on performance, taste or appearance.
