Benefits of Lecithin for Confectioning

Leading confectioners reap a variety of benefits when using soy lecithin in chocolate making. Its primary role is to reduce the viscosity of melted chocolate, and this effect is the result of its ability to reduce surface tension. Lecithin lowers the surface tension of the cocoa butter and reduces its resistance to spread.

Lecithin’s functionality in caramels, toffees, brittles is that of an emulsifier, preventing the fats from separating producing a more tender, richer finished product. It also contains natural antioxidants which help to extend shelf life. The use of 10-15% lecithin in vegetable oil sprayed onto caramel popcorn as a releasing agent results in a product which is more pleasant to eat and, at the same time, easier to package.

Improve the Quality of Confections

Companies that incorporate soy lecithin in the chocolate making process make the bean-to-bar process much easier and much less expensive when compared to other options like cocoa butter. Manufacturers who produce chocolate confections in bulk soon discover that soy lecithin works well through large pipes and machines, ensuring that no product gets stuck in the process of manufacturing.

Soy lecithin also improves the shelf life of any chocolate products. It improves sugar crystallization, keeping chocolate from blooming easily, increasing customer satisfaction and overall profitability for your company.
