Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • 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
  • 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.
