MINNEAPOLIS — Cargill is introducing Topcithin SF lecithin, a clean-label sunflower lecithin, in North America and South America. The ingredient does not require soy allergen labeling while matching soy lecithin in functionality, taste and color, according to Minneapolis-based Cargill. Potential applications include chocolate, chewy candies such as caramels and toffees, chewing gum, and sauces.
Topcithin SF also may replace synthetically produced emulsifiers such as ammonium phosphatide and citric acid esters of monoglyceride and diglyceride.
