1. Serum cholesterol reduction and changes in cholesterol metabolism were studied during rapeseed oil feeding without and with increasing amounts of sitostanol trans-esterified with rapeseed oil fatty acids and dissolved in rapeseed oil mayonnaise. Fifteen mildly hypercholesterolaemic subjects replaced 50 g of their usual dietary fat by 50 g of rapeseed oil fat mayonnaise for 6 weeks followed by randomization so that eight subjects continued on rapeseed oil mayonnaise alone (control group) for… 

Cholesterol-lowering efficacy of a sitostanol-containing phytosterol mixture with a prudent diet in hyperlipidemic men.

Addition of blended phytosterols to a prudent North American diet improved plasma LDL-cholesterol concentrations by mechanisms that did not result in significant changes in endogenous cholesterol synthesis in hypercholesterolemic men.

Reduction of serum cholesterol with sitostanol-ester margarine in a mildly hypercholesterolemic population.

BACKGROUND Dietary plant sterols, especially sitostanol, reduce serum cholesterol by inhibiting cholesterol absorption. Soluble sitostanol may be more effective than a less soluble preparation. We

Serum, biliary, and fecal cholesterol and plant sterols in colectomized patients before and during consumption of stanol ester margarine.

Small amounts of plant stanols are recovered in serum and bile during consumption of stanol esters but effectively are secreted through bile, thereby balancing the intake-induced increase in their absorption.

Effects of phytosterol ester-enriched margarine on plasma lipoproteins in mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia are related to basal cholesterol and fat intake.

The improvements of LDL, HDL, total cholesterol, apolipoprotein B concentrations, and LDL/HDL cholesterol ratio during the daily consumption of a phytosterol ester-enriched margarine were most marked in those subjects with a high dietary intake of cholesterol, energy, total fat, and saturated fatty acids and with high baseline cholesterol absorption.

Regulation of cholesterol metabolism by dietary plant sterols.

Stanol ester margarine has been included in dietary treatment of hypercholesterolemia followed by the addition of drug treatment in resistant cases, and stanols and their esters are minimally absorbed and they reduce serum plant sterol concentrations, also preventing statin-induced increase of plant sterols.

Vegetable Oil Enriched with Phytosterol Ester and the Degree of Serum Cholesterol Lowering Effect in Healthy Subjects

Results indicate that a daily intake of about 0.45 g phytosterol beneficially affect the levels of total- and LDL-cholesterol even in healthy subjects with a slightly elevated serum cholesterol level, and that it may be helpful in reducing the risk of CHD.

Sitostanol ester margarine in dietary treatment of children with familial hypercholesterolemia.

Partial replacement of normal dietary fat consumption by sitostanol ester margarine appears to be an effective and safe hypocholesterolemic treatment in children with FH.
