Lipoid Lipoid Lipoid

Organic egg lecithin

Lipoid is the world's first manufacturer to produce organic egg lecithin, following the ongoing trend for natural and sustainable ingredients.

Due to the naturally high content of omega 3 fatty acids (e.g., DHA) and phospholipids, the new product is an ideal ingredient for organic-certified dietary supplements, baby food or other dietetic products. Both constituents are currently of high interest due to their influence on development and maintenance of cognitive functions. [1,2] Lipoid’s organic egg lecithin is produced under cGMP conditions and certified according to Regulation (EC) No 834/2007. The complete supply chain is monitored by Lipoid, starting with the keeping of the laying hens and their feed up to the in-house extraction of the lecithin.

Lipoid is a German-based company, specialized in the development and industrial production of high quality lecithins and phospholipids for pharmaceutical, nutritional and cosmetic applications. Founded in 1977, Lipoid is the only company worldwide offering the whole range of natural and synthetic phospholipids in industrial scale.
