Plant sterols/cholesterol study

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Preliminary USDA/Agricultural Research Service study results show two daily servings of salad dressing containing plant sterol esters as part of a low-fat diet decreased total blood cholesterol levels in 53 subjects by over 18%, Joseph Judd, MD, et al., Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center, USDA, reported at the FASEB meeting. The poster notes a low-fat diet with plant sterols resulted in an 18.2% reduction in LDL (or "bad") cholesterol, compared to an 8.4% LDL cholesterol reduction in those on a low-fat diet alone. The study was partly funded by Lipton, the Unilever subsidiary that markets Take Control products
