It is due to its high phospholipid content that lecithin possesses specific functions. Phospholipids are amphiphilic, meaning they have different affinities for oil and water. Lecithin forms stable O/W and W/O emulsions and durable dispersions in a wide range of applications. It is generally found in all living cells as a major component of the cell membrane, which regulates the nutrients entering and exiting the cell or the metabolic processes. Lecithin is a vital feature of all life; it is an essential nutritional supplement.HLB stands for Hydrophilic Lipophilic Balance. A low HLB value indicates greater lipophilicity or a higher affinity towards lipids (oil). Conversely, a high HLB value indicates a greater affinity towards water. Emulsifiers with high HLB values are used in O/W type of emulsions, and vice versa.One method is by using HLB (Hydrophilic Lipophilic Balance).

Different emulsifiers have different HLB values, and proper emulsifiers are selected depending on the composition of the proposed emulsion.
