Information @ a Glance

  • Stanol ester is a heterogeneous group of chemical Compounds known to reduce the level of low-density lipoprotein LDL cholesterol in blood when ingested, though to a much lesser degree than prescription drugs such as statins.
  • Plant stanol esters are found naturally occurring in small quantities in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, cereals, legumes, and vegetable oils.
  • Stanol ester is often added to rapeseed oil based margarine or other foods for its health benefits.
  • Plant sterols and stanols reduce cholesterol absorption from the gut. In combination with a regular exercise and a healthy meal plan, consuming 2 to 3 grams of plant stanols and sterols daily may reduce total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (“bad”) or low density lipoproteins levels by 6 to 15 percent.
  • There is no benefit from consuming more than 3 grams per day
  • Plant sterols or phytosterols and esters are natural, fat-like compounds structurally similar to cholesterol.
  • Daily intake of 2-3 g sterols and stanols can lower coronary heart disease risk by 20% over a lifetime.
  • Phytosterols play a major role in pharmaceuticals for production of therapeutic steroids, in nutrition as anti-cholesterol additives and in cosmetics.
  • Current Uses-Margarines, fat spreads, soft spreadable cheeses, mayonnaise, salad dressings, low fat dairy products, milks, yogurts and cheeses, snack and energy bars, fry oils, breakfast cereals, blended juice/milk smoothie beverages
  • Potential Uses- Baked pastry products, egg noodles and pasta, custard, ice cream, frozen desserts, muesli, bars and soups, meat products, rice beverages, cereal grains and flours, food flavourings and coffees
  • Products containing plant stanols and sterols are not recommended for children under the age of 5 years, breastfeeding or pregnant women
  • Type Of Food Eaten And The Impact On Lowering Bad Cholesterol - 3 bowls of oats (3 x 30g bowls), 3 glasses of soya milk (3 x 250ml glasses), 1 bottle of Benecol® one a day yogurt drink/ Dairy Free Drink
  • One of the major problems with foods fortified with sterols and stanols is that they tend to be very expense. Statistics suggest that they must be taken on a consistent basis before any cholesterol lowering effect can be seen.
