Phytosterol and phytosterol esters
Phytosterols, commonly referred to as plant sterols, are plant lipids that are naturally present in vegetables, fruits and grains. Eating foods rich in plant sterols help promote healthy blood cholesterol levels. When plant sterols reach the digestive tract, they block gastrointestinal absorption of dietary cholesterol into the bloodstream, thus lowering serum cholesterol.
It is difficult to incorporate free plant sterols into edible fats/oils because of their insolubility, whereas plant sterols esterified to fattyacids are more fat-soluble. In intestines, most plant sterol esters are hydrolyzed to free plant sterols again as part of the normal digestive precess.
