Phytosterols are plant sterols which are found in the fatty tissues of plants. Phytosterols cannot be synthesized by humans and animals due to which they need to be included in the diet. The chemical structure of phytosterols is similar to cholesterol, with few exceptions; however, the absorption of phytosterols in humans is much less than that of cholesterol. Phytosterols are naturally found in all items of plant origin.


Food industry is the major end user for phytosterols as most of the processed food is being topped off with phytosterols to cater the needs of health concerned consumers. It is the largest shareholder of this market with almost 50% of market share both in terms of volume and money.

Market Dynamics

Consumers across the world are becoming more health conscious for foods with additional benefits such as low cholesterol and reduced disease risks.
