Sunflower is a soy alternative, hypo-allergenic source of lecithin. Lecithins are used mainly as emulsifiers. They are surface-active; simultaneous hydrophilic (water-loving) and hydrophobic (water-repelling) properties enable lecithins to make stable blends of materials that otherwise do not mix easily and tend to separate. The amount of lecithin needed to blend substances such as the soybean oil and water in margarine, or the pigment in latex paint, depends on the overall fat content in the end product.
