Furthermore, acetone present in de-oiled lecithin, is widely used for the de-oiling of lecithin, as it extracts about half of the inactive vegetable oil from the crude lecithin. In this method, acetone is added to the crude lecithin, and de-oiled lecithin is obtained after the evaporation of the added acetone leading to increase in the phospholipid content by about 40% after the de-oiling process. Growth in concern among consumers regarding natural and organic food ingredients is encouraging the consumers to shift toward clean label products. This fuels the demand for label-friendly de-oiled lecithin leading to increase in their adoption by a large population worldwide. Although excess consumption of it may have negative impact on health.

De-oiled lecithin is mainly derived from soy, sunflower, rapeseed, and eggs. Although de-oiled lecithin is mainly extracted from soybean oil by the addition of water and centrifugation, it has been witnessing a decline in demand, owing to concerns related to allergens and GMO foods. In 2016, According to the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), soybean was the largest genetically modified crop at a global level. This augments the demand for alternate sources such as sunflower and rapeseed. However, the supply of sunflower lecithin is not sufficient to fulfill the required demand.

The report segments the global de-oiled market based on form, source, and application. Based on form, the market is divided into powdered and granulated de-oiled lecithin. Based on source, it is classified into soy, sunflower, rapeseed, and egg. Based on application, it is categorized into food, feed, and healthcare.

The soy segment dominated the global de-oiled market in 2017, accounting for around 36% de-oiled market share of the overall revenue. This was due to the ability to recover faster from illness and increase survival rate. Also, farmers focus on producing organic soybeans to fulfill the global demand for organic de-oiled lecithin. Furthermore, this segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.

In 2017, the food segment led the global market, owing to its chemical properties that bind two liquids that do not mix well together. This allows consumers to view their food in a smooth, consistent, and quality manner. Key players are investing in this industry owing to their numerous benefits and high consumption. Thus, food segment is expected to expand in upcoming times, and thus boost the sale of de-oiled lecithin.
