Soy Lecithin Powder
Soy lecithin powder can be used as an emulsifier in a variety of foods to improve texture and consistency. Packed with healthy choline, soy lecithin can also be taken as a dietary supplement. One tablespoon of mild nutty flavored lecithin powder provides about 50% of the new (DRI) Dietary Reference Intake Level for choline.
Culinary Uses of Soy Lecithin Powder
Soy lecithin powder is a great emulsifying agent that helps oil and water stay together in foods. This quality makes it a staple in salad dressing, spreads, sauces, gravies, and nut butters. Lecithin also prevents crystallization in chocolate and other sweet confections. It adds moisture and texture to breads and baked goods, and improves consistency throughout the batter.
Soy lecithin powder can also be taken as a choline supplement. It has a light nutty and buttery taste that blends seamlessly into a variety of foods. Enjoy soy lecithin in beverages such as smoothies and juices, or sprinkle it over yogurt, cereal or oatmeal. Try mixing it in a salad dressing or bowl of soup. One daily serving of soy lecithin powder is 1-2 tablespoons.
Health Benefits of Soy Lecithin Powder
Soy lecithin powder is a rich food source of choline, the compound responsible for keeping cell membranes healthy and flexible so that nutrients are allowed in and waste is flushed out. The human body is capable of synthesizing choline, but it must also be consumed through diet to support normal cell function and metabolic needs. Research indicates that soy lecithin supplementation may lead to promising health benefits.
Lower Cholesterol Levels: Soy lecithin powder is great for heart health because its choline component helps break down fats and cholesterol. A 2003 study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that diets supplemented with soy lecithin powder reduced cholesterol absorption and LDL “bad” cholesterol levels.
Brain Health: Consuming choline-rich foods like soy lecithin can improve memory and reduce cognitive decline. A 2011 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people with high dietary intakes of choline experienced better performance on memory tests and reduced brain changes associated with dementia.
Often referred to as oil-free lecithin, lecithin powder has essentially all the natural soybean oil removed from it.
