Ingredi Yelkin TS Lecithin displays soybean properties and easily modifies the boundary layers between substances. It reduces the surface tension between two liquids, and is a dispersing agent between a solid and a liquid. The substance also works as a lubricant between two solids. TS Lecithin is an amber liquid that gives off an aromatic odor. It should not be exposed to freezing temperatures because it could cause the oil to separate from the phospholipids. If it does separate, it can be remixed under heat without losing functionality.
