Benecol®, owned by Raisio Group, offer a range of tasty foods including yogurt drinks, yogurts and spreads, which contain a unique ingredient – plant stanol ester.

Plant stanols structurally resemble cholesterol, which is why they can interfere with cholesterol absorption. Reduced absorption of cholesterol results in reduced serum LDL cholesterol levels and therefore reduced cholesterol. Simply having 2g of plant stanols daily with meals, can lower your cholesterol by 7-10* in just 2-3 weeks. This reduction is in addition to what can be achieved with dietary changes and/or cholesterol lowering medication.

The cholesterol lowering efficacy of plant stanols in Benecol® foods has been demonstrated in over 80 clinical studies and is recommended as part of a healthy lifestyle in international guidelines.
