Functions and applications of lecithin in bakery

In bakery products lecithins are commonly used to ensure even mixing of the batter, reduced stickiness of the dough and lower fat content. They facilitate moisture retention in the final product and improve taste and freshness. In addition, higher volume yield, finer pores and better crusts can be achieved with lecithin in bread and bread rolls.

When lecithin is added as an emulsifier in margarine, it helps to avoid spattering of hot fat and scorching of milk casein when food is pan fried. The composition of the lecithin can be adjusted to suit the requirements of the margarine and its application.
