is a generic term to designate any group of yellow-brownish fatty substances occurring in animal and plant tissues composed of phosphoric acid,choline,fattyacids,glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids (e.g.,phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and phosphatidylinositol).
Lecithin Plant can easily be extracted chemically (using�hexane,�ethanol,�acetone,�petroleum ether,�benzene, etc.) or mechanically. It is usually available from sources such as�soybeans, eggs, milk, marine sources,�rapeseed, cottonseed, and sunflower. It has low solubility in water, but is an excellent�emulsifier. In aqueous solution, its phospholipids can form either�liposomes, bilayer sheets,�micelles, or lamellar structures, depending on hydration and temperature. This results in a type of�surfactant�that usually is classified as�amphipathic. Lecithin Plant is sold as a food supplement and for medical uses. In cooking, it is sometimes used as an emulsifier and to prevent sticking, for example in�nonstick cooking spray.
