Product Description

Sunflower seed lecithin contains a high level of choline, which breaks up cholesterol in the body and it is vital for the proper functioning of the brain. Sunflower lecithin is useful in maintaining normal cholesterol levels as part of a low cholesterol diet and is also a rich source of phosphatidylcholine which is essential for healthy cell and brain function. The high levels of choline are necessary for healthy liver and brain function. Sunflower lecithin is great when added to smoothies, soups and sauces. It also is very useful as a thickening agent. 

Sunflower Lecithin is gluten-free, kosher. Semi liquid form (like thick honey).



INGREDIENTS: PREMIUM SUNFLOWER LECITHIN.

Until recently, this product was organic and extracted without hexane, a chemical solvent. It was that way when I purchased it from Amazon. It even had the USDA Organic Seal on its label. None of this is any longer true. Blue Mountain SFL is no longer organic nor is it extracted without the solvent hexane or acetone (nail polish remover). Apparently, Blue Mountain lowered the quality of its liquid sunflower lecithin, but not its prices.

Luckily, the MySunflowerLecithin.com website offers another brand of liquid sunflower lecithin - Lekithos. The website has several grades of SFL. It also has a powdered form, but it is only 95% sunflower lecithin. (I wonder what the other 5% consists of.) I will buy their organic and mechanically extracted SFL next time. It is more expensive but I refuse to buy it non-organic or any soy lecithin - non-GMO or not - organic or not.

All SFL are non-GMO, as I think all sunflower products are - so far. Nearly all soy products now have GMOs.

I read about lecithin years ago in an old nutrition book by Adele Davis, and decided to try it. I liked it, or liked the idea of taking it anyway, but stopped taking it when I learned that some health problems I was having at the time were related to soy in my diet. My health improved greatly when I stopped eating soy, but I missed the lecithin.

I was happy to discover recently that other types of lecithin were available. One source is sunflowers. I tried sunflower lecithin capsules, but was less than enthused about them. Nothing wrong with them, but they felt like an inert food somehow, maybe because of the processing when it's put into the capsules.

I found LoveRawFoods Raw Sunflower Lecithin online a few weeks ago and decided to try it. It's a little pricey, not so much the product itself, which is reasonably priced, but when you combine the product price with the shipping, it adds up. But I'm glad I bought it. I really love it. It's great to be able to eat lecithin again after all of these years.

To reiterate: sunflower lecithin is not like soy lecithin. Soy lecithin is an industrial waste product marketed for human consumption (made usually from genetically modified soybeans). It's toxic and bad for you. Sunflower lecithin is a beneficial food product derived from sunflower seeds. And better yet, the LoveRawFoods brand is raw. Very cool. It tastes like very fresh sunflower seeds. I'll keep buying it as long as LRF keeps making it.

If you're new to lecithin, I'd recommend mixing some into a smoothie, till you develop a taste for it. I actually eat it by the spoonful. But I know that's unusual :)Most people would want to mix it into some food.

Like the other reviewer noted, never eat soy lecithin, despite it's claims it comes from GMO's soy which is very harmful, and soy is not meant for anyone anyways. [...]
I started buying this when I began making my own nut milks, mostly hemp, which gives it a nice creamy texture and prevents separation. (which is why it soy lecithin in about all processed foods) Love sunflower products and eat them often. Very healthy, sustainable food source and great for the environment. This is a great product, lasts a long time, depending on how you use it. I put a spoonful in for my nut milks which lasts me a couple days.

Did not want a soy emulsifier, staying away from soy products. I purchased this as an emulsifier for my home made chocolate. Without an emulsifier the honey separates and goes to the bottom of the candy, still tasty, but sticky and not a smooth chocolate experience. This works. Amazingly, it works. Little drops of honey mixed in with the oil and the cacao, a little miracle for the beginning chocolate maker in me. I was so excited after fighting the separation process with lots of stirring and hurrying it into the molds and right into the freezer to still have a sticky bottomed chocolate...

Basic home made chocolate recipe:

-1 cup coconut oil, cold pressed, virgin--very important, more nutrition, you want the nutrients for your brain.
-1/2 cup raw cacao powder or more to taste if really dark chocolate taste is desired. Amazon has the best prices on this.
dash salt
-1/3-1/2 cup raw honey to taste- depending on how dark you like it. (I have used maple syrup, powdered sugar, xylitol, erythritol, coconut sugar, sucanat, whatever your choice, just blend it up in your blender to powder it or your chocolate will be grainy. I prefer the raw honey for the taste and the antibacterial properties and extra nutrition that the others don't have.
-1/2 to 1 tsp of sunflower lecithin to keep it from separating.
-Dash of home made vanilla or store bought or even chocolate extract, rum, whatever your choice for flavor.

Melt the coconut oil and the honey if your home is too cool, as mine is always cool. The raw honey is granular and if you do not heat it up a little, not much, no boiling here, just bringing it above room temperature so the natural antibacterial properties of raw honey are not destroyed. Do not nuke it, gets too hot.

I used to buy this for making liposomal vit c. It used to be organic. It is no longer. Even scarier, it is now processed with hexane (a neurotoxin). I'm now buying an organic, non chemical processed sunflower lecithin from lekithos on mysunflowerlecithin.com. Not as convenient, but I don't want to compromise my health. Wanted to let other health minded people to know of an alternative.
