Lecithin is a fatty substance which is made by the liver (synthesised from choline). It is also present in certain foods. Lecithin was named after the Greek word for egg yolk (leci-thos). Lecithin is comprised of phosphatidylcholines - a group of phospholipids each made up of glycerol, Phosphorus, choline and two fatty acids of varying identity.
However, the term lecithin usually encompasses a wider group of substances - namely, phosphatidylcholine together with phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylethanolamine, Phosphatidylserine and free fatty acids, choline and inositol.
Lecithin is made internally by the liver and is also present in certain foods.
