I tuned in but you were at the half way mark. We have manuka honey here in UK but only really used in a drink or on toast. Also quite pricey, how much is it for a jar over there? Just watched the whole of your video and the salad looks very yummy \U0001f60b\U0001f60a

Lecithin is a generic term to designate any group of yellow-brownish fatty substances occurring in animal and plant tissues, which are amphiphilic - they attract both water (and so are hydrophilic) and fatty substances (lipophilic), and are used for smoothing food textures, dissolving powders (emulsifiers), homogenizing liquid mixtures, and repelling sticking materials.
