Plant Sterol Esters (soy)
Plant Sterol Esters,Phytosterol esters, generally composed of a fatty acid that has been confirmed by numerous studies esterification or transesterification reaction of the plant sterols has significant lipid-lowering function. However, plant sterols do not dissolve in water, slightly soluble in the oil, this disadvantage limits its application. Over the years, people have been trying to phytosterols modified to expand its range of applications.By purifying modified plant sterols have developed a variety of products. Wherein the esterified phytosterols sterol ester is one of the most important means of modification.For ease in food processing applications, it requires a change in the form of plant sterols without affecting the physiological functions of plant sterols premise. The plant sterol fatty acid ester meet this requirement, it greatly improves the fat-soluble plant sterols, which can be added to the oil-containing foods. Phytosterol esters are hydrolysed by pancreatic lipase free form of cholesterol sterol is absorbed, which is the only difference between free sterols and sterol ester in metabolism, thus having the same physiological function phytosterol ester phytosterols.
