AS001 Plant Sterols and Stanols in Food and Pharmaceuticals

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

Plant sterols (phytosterols) are naturally occurring substances present in diets largely as minor components of vegetable oils. Plant stanols (phytostanols) occur in nature at a lower level and are hydrogenation compounds of plant sterols. The plasma cholesterol-lowering properties of plant sterols have been known since the 1950s. These products are important food ingredients for heart health (cholesterol lowering) and as intermediates in pharmaceutical production. 

Objective

The objective of this study was to assist a client in understanding the commercial demand for plant sterols. The scope of the project was plant sterols derived from wood and vegetable oils.

Method

CPL used a combination of desk based-research and interviews for this project. CPL conducted interviews by telephone, face-to-face meetings, and attending trade shows. CPL spoke to key market participants across the value chain, including purified sterols manufacturers, ingredient manufacturers, and end users. This provided additional perspectives about the current market supply and demand conditions – and their likely developments over the next five years.

In particular, CPL obtained specific insights about the requirements/demand for plant sterols for use in pharmaceuticals and food applications – and the market dynamics for the supply of purified sterols.
