What is PLANT STANOL ESTER?

 

Plant Stanol Ester

The Plant Stanol Ester ingredient is made from Plant Stanols and vegetable oil. Plant Sterols occur naturally in certain foods, such as edible plants, seeds and grains, but the levels we get from our normal daily diet are too low to be effective for cholesterol lowering.

By the end of the 1980s, scientists at Raisio, a Finnish food company, discovered a way of concentrating the Plant Stanols and creating an ingredient that could be added easily to a wide range of delicious food products.

Organizations around the world such as the European Society of Cardiology, and American Heart Association have proven the cholesterol-lowering effects of plant stanols as well as their safety1-3. According to the European Union Register of Nutrient and Health Claims, if individuals were to consume 1.5-2.4 grams of plant stanols daily for a continuous duration of 2-3 weeks, their LDL cholesterol levels could decrease by 7-10%3.

 

Natural and Effective

Plant stanol ester was one of the first functional ingredients to get a coveted health claim in Europe. These are allowed to mention reduction of a risk factor in the development of disease. The approved claim makes Benecol® one of the most trusted products for people who want to lower their cholesterol. Safety is also assured.

Benecol® is recommended and safe

 

Plant stanol ester has gone through extensive testing to prove its efficacy and safety. This has resulted in endorsements from many food safety authorities around the world including Europe, the US, Japan, China, Australia and Russia. Plant stanol ester has been awarded an Approved Health Claim, by the European Parliament and Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status in USA. In addition, Benecol® products have been on the market since 1995 with no reports of adverse effects.

Many national health organisations now recommend that consumers include 2 g of plant stanols per day in their diets for cholesterol reduction.
