Phospholipids are a part of the bi-layer membrane of any cell. In human cells high phospholipid concentrations are found in the bone marrow, the brain, the liver and the heart. In this important group of lipids, phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylserine (PS) and glycerophosphocholine (GPC) are predominant in dietetic applications. PC and PS release essential fatty acids to the body. The latter, as well as the phospholipids themselves, are indispensable for life as they are involved in the metabolism and respiration of cells. In addition they play an important role in the cholesterol metabolism. Phos-pholipids are also important energy providers for the cells. There is an increased demand of phosphol-ipids during periods of high physical and mental activity e.g. during sport activities, in stressful situa-tions or during the convalescence.
Phospholipids are the active components of lecithin and are extracted from renewable raw materials such as soybean, rapeseed and sunflower. They are available on industrial scale.
Lecithin and phospholipids exhibit manifold technological and physiological properties and thus are valuable raw materials for the production of modern dietetics.
Lecithin and phospholipids can be used in various applications:
