We are an association of global companies in the sector of plant sterols and stanols and our members are: Arboris, BASF, Cargill, Raisio, and Unilever. Plant sterols and stanols are abundant in nature and provide cholesterol-lowering properties.

It has been scientifically proven and recognized by regulatory authorities around the world that a daily consumption of foods and food supplements with 1.5 – 3.0g of added plant sterols or stanols can lower blood LDL-cholesterol dose-dependently by 7-12.5% in 2-3 weeks as part of the daily diet. Our mission is to educate media, policy makers and the public about the efficacy and safety of eating plant sterols and stanols as part of a balanced diet to lower raised blood cholesterol.
