Our liquid lecithin comes in an easy to use 4 ounce jar. Liquid lecithin is easier to use than the powder or granule form, it blends much smoother and avoids clumping.

Liquid lecithin is an oil-like extract from soybeans used to preserve, emulsify and moisturize foods. Many candy makers look for lecithin as an emulsifier (make water and oil combine) in real chocolates, caramel and taffy.

Lecithin can be used to thin chocolate. It is more cost effective than cocoa butter and less is needed for similar results.

Usage recommendation is 0.25 - 0.50% lecithin per total batch. Too much lecithin can have the reverse effect and cause chocolate to thicken. Can also be used to control sugar crystallization.

TIP: When mixing up a batch of icing for cakes, cupcakes or cookies add 1/8 teaspoon lecithin to your frosting to get deeper more vibrant colors when adding food coloring.
