Lipoid is a leading supplier and industry pioneer in producing purified lecithin and phospholipids. We offer a comprehensive range of special phospholipids and phospholipid-based carrier systems for dietetic applications. Our non-GMO phosphatidylcholine products derived from soybean, sunflower and egg yolk are substantial building blocks for nutrient-enriched formulations like emulsions and liposomes. Lipophilic nutrients can be solubilized in our innovative liquid systems (PhytoSolve, PHOSAL). Moreover, our portfolio includes active ingredients like glycerophosphocholine and phosphatidylserine.

PHOSAL® Curcumin is a novel combination of curcuminoids with phosphatidylcholine from sunflower. As a component of bile, phosphatidylcholine contributes physiologically to the digestion of fats. The phospholipid consists of a hydrophilic ("water-loving") and a lipophilic ("fat-loving") part. It can combine with fats and fat soluble nutrients and disperse them in an aqueous environment.
In the gastrointestinal tract, PHOSAL® Curcumin facilitates the formation of small fat droplets that contain the curcuminoids with a phosphatidylcholine shell. These so called micelles are also formed during the physiological process of fat digestion and allow for the uptake of fat soluble nutrients into the epithelial cells of the small intestine (enterocytes). The formulation of curcuminoids with phosphatidylcholine contributes significantly to the uptake of the active ingredients following entirely nature's own mechanisms. In addition, the inclusion into micelles protects the sensitive curcuminoids from premature degradation, thereby providing an additional bioavailability-enhancing effect.
