Lecithin from Rice

Project @ a Glance
  • Lecithin is an integral part of cell membranes, and can be totally metabolized, so it is virtually non-toxic to humans.
  • The lecithin is obtained by degumming the extracted oil of oil seeds. The lecithin is a mixture of various phospholipids, and the compositions depends on the origin of the lecithin.
  • Lecithin preparation from rice bran lipids contains 20-25% phosphatidyl choline.
  • The natural emulsifier lecithin is expensive because it is not easy to separate lecithin from soybean oil. Now a rice bran extract is being offered as a lecithin replacer
  • Production of food-grade lecithin requires prior removal of bran fines and waxes. Regular water degumming may be used. Temperatures above 80 C are required to prevent crystallization and removal of waxes with the gums
