Choline for health. (Abstracts).(advertisement)

Choline deficiency contributes to liver damage, abnormal kidney function, infertility, growth impairment, bone abnormalities and hypertension. While the human body cannot produce choline in appropriate quantities, the main dietary source for choline, lecithin, is found in various foods. However, since its best sources are in fat- and cholesterol-rich foods such as egg yolks, red meat and organ meats, current trends towards lower-fat and lower-cholesterol foods may reduce the average consumer's access to lecithin in these forms. Food manufacturers are expected to begin to add choline to food products to enhance nutritional value. Central Soya is a worldwide leader in producing lecithin products as functional and nutritional food ingredients, and is a committed and involved advocate for regulatory actions benefiting consumer health.
