What is fat and oil emulsification?
Emulsification of fats and oils is the process where the large fat globules are broken down into minute fat droplets. This allows lipase, the enzyme that digests fats to access the fat molecules. Bile is the complex fluid that is responsible for the emulsification of fats and oils in the digestive system and without bile, fats and oils, including the important essential fatty acids and the fat-soluble vitamins would not be digested and absorbed.
What Is Lecithin?
Lecithin is a type of lipid that serves many important functions in the body. It consists primarily of the B vitamins choline and inositol and the essential fatty acid linoleic acid. Lecithin is an essential constituent of every cell in the human body. It is an emulsifying agent and a necessary part of bile, and is therefore required for the breakdown of fats and oils in the digestive system, a process that is necessary for the digestion, and absorption of essential fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins.
