Enzymic Modification of Sunflower Lecithin

  • Anna P. Erdélyi

Abstract

Lecithin could be produced from any crude vegetable oil, but because of the huge quantities of soybean grown and processed, and because of the relatively high percentage of phosphatides in soybean oil, practically in the world soybean oil is the principal commercial source of natural and modified lecithins as well. The world’s consumption of lecithin is estimated at 100,000 tons per year. In western Europe 30,000 tons are produced and more than the half of it is applied as modified lecithins /4/. In Hungary sunflower is the major oilseed crop, on this account sunflower lecithin has been the subject of this study.
