Optima Lecithin granules are of the highest quality, containing no additives. They are guaranteed to be produced from non-GM soya beans grown from certified IP (identity preserved) seeds, and are tested for absence of genetically modified DNA. The product can be used in cooking as a thickening agent to help bind mixtures and create smooth blends, for example in soups, sauces, and dressings. They are also ideal to be taken by those following a calorie controlled, low fat, low cholestrol diet.
Lecithin is a naturally rich source of phosphatidyl choline (PC), a nutrient that may help in the breakdown of fats and may also play a role in brain function. Phosphorus contributes to normal function of cell membranes. Lecithin is also a source of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids, which may help maintain normal cholestrol levels and cardiovascular health. As levels of certain nutrients decline with age, it is important to ensure adequate levels are present in the diet.
Directions: Sprinkle three teaspoons (10.5g) of Lecithin Granules daily onto cereal or add to soups or hot drinks; the flavour will not be impaired. Alternatively, it is delicious directly from the spoon. As this is a natural product the colour and texture may vary from batch to batch; this does not affect the product's natural properties.
Other: Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Gluten Free.
