Sunflower Lecithin

  • W. H. Morrison


Because of the increased domestic production of sunflower seed oil, by-products of oil processing such as meal and lecithin will be in greater supply. Lecithin content varies according to the type of sunflower seed produced. Removal of this material is greatly affected by seed condition and processing conditions. Conditions which favor optimal removal of phospholipids are also those for optimal oil quality. This review will cover some of the properties and processing details of lecithin production.
