All fruits, vegetables, and grains contain phytosterols. Numerous clinical studies have documented that phytosterols lower LDL-cholesterol levels and thereby reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Most experts believe that the cholesterol-lowering mechanism of phytosterols requires that they be in their “free” form. In addition to their occurrence in the free form, phytosterols also occur as four common phytosterol conjugates: (i) fatty acyl esters, (ii) hydroxycinnamate esters, (iii… Expand
Phytosterols esterified with conjugated linoleic acid. In vitro intestinal digestion and interaction on cholesterol bioaccessibility.
Intestinal in vitro digestion of phytosterols esterified with conjugated linoleic acid (PS-CLA) was performed to study (1) the potential bioaccessibility of the released bioactive-lipid products andExpand
Fate of dietary phytosteryl/-stanyl esters: analysis of individual intact esters in human feces
TLDR
The study revealed large interindividual variability regarding the recoveries of dietary phytosteryl/-stanyl esters upon gastrointestinal passage in healthy humans. Expand
Effects of oxidation on the hydrolysis by cholesterol esterase of sitosteryl esters as compared to a cholesteryl ester
TLDR
A new inhibitor of CEase is identified: sitosteryl 9,10-dihydroxystearate, which behaves as a non-competitive inhibitor of the hydrolysis of cholesteryl oleate and satosteryl oleates. Expand
Phytosterol glycosides reduce cholesterol absorption in humans.
TLDR
The results suggest that natural phytosterol glycosides purified from lecithin are bioactive in humans and should be included in methods of phydosterol analysis and tables of food phyt Fosterol content. Expand
Impact of thermooxidation of phytosteryl and phytostanyl fatty acid esters on cholesterol micellarization in vitro
TLDR
The obtained results suggest that in particular oxidative modifications of the fatty acid moieties might be responsible for the observed increases of cholesterol micellarization. Expand
The effect of in vitro digestion on steryl ferulates from rice (Oryza sativa L.) and other grains.
TLDR
It is suggested that intestinal enzymes immediately hydrolyze steryl ferulates, which are liberated from the grain matrix, and thus they are practically unavailable for absorption in the small intestine. Expand
Enzymatic hydrolysis of steryl ferulates and steryl glycosides
Steryl ferulates (SF) and steryl glycosides (SG) are phytosterol conjugates found characteristically in cereals. Currently, little is known about their properties with respect to enzymaticExpand
Phytosterols, Cholesterol Absorption and Healthy Diets
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to outline the emerging role of dietary phytosterols in human health and to suggest that the retention of phyllosterols during food manufacturing and the use of foods with highphytosterol content may constitute an alternative to theUse of supplements. Expand
Glycosidic Bond Cleavage is Not Required for Phytosteryl Glycoside-Induced Reduction of Cholesterol Absorption in Mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ASG reduces cholesterol absorption in mice as efficiently as PSE while having little systemic absorption itself. Expand
Variation of phytosterols and steryl ferulates in wheat grains and fractions
Phytosterols are plant-derived bioactive compounds known for their serum cholesterol-lowering ability and other health benefits. Phytosterols may occur as free sterols or various conjugates, e.g.Expand

Improved method for the synthesis of trans-feruloyl-beta-sitostanol.
TLDR
The process was successfully applied to synthesize stanol trans-feruloyl esters from "Vegetable Stanols", a mixture of approximately 70:30 beta-sitostanol and beta-campestanol, in comparable purity and yield. Expand
Evaluation of a commercial enzyme-based serum cholesterol test kit for analysis of phytosterol and phytostanol products.
TLDR
A popular commercial spectrophotometric serum cholesterol test kit was evaluated and results indicate that the method could be modified to analyze phytosterols and phytostanols by increasing the incubation time. Expand
Phytosterols, phytostanols, and their conjugates in foods: structural diversity, quantitative analysis, and health-promoting uses.
TLDR
Phytosterols and phytostanols have received much attention in the last five years because of their cholesterol-lowering properties and the popularity of these products has caused the medical and biochemical community to focus much attention on phytosterol research activity. Expand
Metabolism of sitosteryl beta-D-glucoside and its nutritional effects in rats.
TLDR
Analyses of steryl lipids of the various organs and tissues confirmed the findings obtained with the radioactive substrate: neither sitosteryl beta-D-glucoside nor sitosterol orSitosteryl esters derived therefrom had been transported in appreciable amounts to organs and tissue outside the alimentary canal during the feeding period.

Enzyme-catalyzed hydrolysis of γ-oryzanol
The hydrolysis of γ-oryzanol, a cholesterol-lowering and antioxidative mixture of steryl ferulates (mainly 24-methylenecycloartanyl ferulate 1, cycloartenyl ferulate 2, campesteryl ferulate 3, andExpand
Metabolic effects of plant sterols and stanols (Review).
TLDR
There is no consistent evidence that plant sterols or stanols can change the risk of colon or prostate cancer, or immune status, and potential effects of plant sterol or stanol esters on other metabolic processes remain to be elucidated. Expand
Xylanase treatment of plant cells induces glycosylation and fatty acylation of phytosterols
TLDR
It is demonstrated that xylanase from Trichoderma viride induces a dramatic shift in the level of acylated sterol glycosides, indicating that endoxylanase was probably the active component in the cellulase enzyme preparations used in the previous study. Expand
Absorption and metabolism of γ-oryzanol in rats
The metabolism and lymphatic transport of γ-oryzanol in rats were investigated following oral administration of the 14C-labeled compound (triterpenyl esters of ferulic acid-3-14C). RedioactivityExpand
Quantitation of steryl ferulate andp-coumarate esters from corn and rice
TLDR
The data presented provide a direct comparison of steryl ferulate andp-coumarate levels in the two cereals, and will aid in selecting the most suitable sources for the isolation of these compounds from corn products. Expand
Serum, biliary, and fecal cholesterol and plant sterols in colectomized patients before and during consumption of stanol ester margarine.
TLDR
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. Expand
