Our products

Soya lecithin, sunflower lecithin and rapeseed lecithin in highest quality

Soya beans, rapeseed and sunflower seeds are the main starting products for obtaining lecithin. They are cleaned, dried and extracted. This produces a vegetable crude oil with a lecithin content of up to 2.5%.

Fismer Lecithin has been able to attract the best partners in the production of raw lecithin through years of personal contact with the oil mills in the main growing areas. Regular visits from both sides strengthen the long-term partnership and cooperation.

This enables Fismer Lecithin to guarantee its customers the highest degree of supply reliability and to keep providing new and sustainable lecithin products with the best quality standards. Customers of Fismer Lecithin can remain assured that they will only be supplied with soya lecithin that complies with the relevant EU directives – and our own standards.

The demand for GMO-free lecithin has increased strongly against the background of the discussion on allergy and genetic engineering. Lecithin from sunflower seeds can be used as alternative to soya lecithin in many cases. There are no genetically modified variants there: Sunflower lecithin, even in the organic quality, is basically non-GMO.

At Fismer Lecithin, high-quality sunflower lecithin is an integral part of the product portfolio. In addition to the origin, we also focus on the storage and processing in the oil mills, which exclusively produce sunflower lecithin.

In recent years, the quality of raw lecithin from rapeseed has been significantly improved by technological processes. In the meantime, rapeseed lecithin has come close to the equivalent qualities of soya and sunflower lecithin.

Fismer Lecithin was able to establish partnerships quickly in the field of rapeseed lecithin – thanks to personal contacts and a high level of expertise in special applications, with particular emphasis on freedom from allergens. Rapeseed lecithins are produced and further developed in close cooperation with the leading rapeseed processing companies.

Things to know about Lecithin

Yes, both from the country of origin and the plant. Unlike rapeseed and soya lecithin, sunflower lecithin is not genetically engineered - it is basically non-GMO. Another important aspect is that sunflower and rapeseed lecithin are free of allergens. Of course, all our vegetable lecithins are suitable for vegetarian and vegan nutrition. Our lecithins are not obtained from animal origins. In all lecithins produced and offered by Fismer Lecithin, great importance is attached to sustainability, transparency and traceability.

Our team of lecithin experts with different application know-how is always ready to answer your questions. We do not have any problems, only challenges.

Highly pure lecithin is often required for demanding products. Through selected aspects such as sustainability, traceability, transparency and maximum functionality, Fismer Lecithin has made it its business to meet the highest customer demands. We adhere to our principles and also to those of our certificates.

Of course, we can supply to our customers worldwide with the same quality standards and customer-specific requirements. We monitor the entire supply chain, from the selection of seeds till the delivery of the product.

There is no difference for Fismer Lecithin. For us, there is only IPM – Identity Preserved Monitoring. For this reason, all our product names with “Non-GMO”, whether sunflower, soya or rapeseed lecithin, end with IPM. Identity Preserved Monitoring means that we can guarantee traceability back to the seed and thus exclude genetically modified traces.

Fismer Lecithin stands committed to full transparency and traceability in the entire supply chain.
Sustainability has become indispensable for our products today. Thus, we guarantee absolute product safety and quality for our customers. From cultivation to production and finally to the finished product, we attach great importance to the sustainability of our lecithin products. Only in this way can we offer our customers outstanding product quality in the long term and in the future.
