Yelkin® T Lecithin

ADM (Archer Daniels Midland) makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Yelkin® T Lecithin is a surface-active agent with unique properties, derived from soybeans. This product can modify the boundary layers between many types of substances. In the presence of two immiscible liquid phases, it reduces the surface tension and acts as an emulsifier. When used between a solid and a liquid phase (instantizing) Yelkin® Lecithin acts as a wetting and dispersing agent. When used between solid phases Yelkin® lecithin acts as a lubricant or release agent.

As a food emulsifier, lecithin is used in the manufacture of margarine, vegetable and dairy based milk replacers including infant formula and ready to use frostings. Lecithin is the active ingredient in many food grade release agents such as pan oils, griddle greases and aerosol coatings. It is also used to alter viscosity in chocolate products and compound coatings. In bread baking applications, lecithin acts to improve dough machinability, volume, symmetry and shelf life. In crackers, cookies, cakes and pies lecithin improves shortening dispersion and acts as a release agent.
