Views wanted on phytosterol esters
18 February 2014
A company has applied to the FSA to extend the use of phytosterol esters as a novel food ingredient, and views are wanted on the draft opinion of the FSA's independent advisory committee. Phytosterol esters are used by the food industry for their cholesterol-lowering properties. Free phytosterols are naturally present at low levels in vegetable oils and in food derived from such oils.
