Lecital Lecithin as a release agent:

Anti-sticking properties of lecithin make it a perfect and necessary ingredient in a wide range of cooking sprays for commercial use. As a release agent lecithin is used to provide easy removal of products from pans, tins, or belts, and also to help separate items from each other. In such cases lecithin-containing substances form a barrier between food products and surfaces, helping to release raw and end products of their molds and separate sliced foods. Nowadays experts more often consider lecithin as a healthy natural and an economical alternative for use as a release agent in different industries. Lecithin blends well with both oils and water, making an protective layer during continuous cooking/freezing/bakery between surface and food.
