Phytosterols are steroid compounds and are very similar to cholesterol. They are found in plants and are
naturally present in oils, pulses, and dried fruits. They can’t be synthesized by animals and humans and
this is why they need to be a part of human diet. Phytosterols comprise a chemical structure just like
cholesterol, but phytosterols’ absorption in the human body is much less as compared to cholesterol. In
terms of application, the global phytosterols market is segmented into pharmaceuticals, food ingredients,
and cosmetics. They are broadly utilized as food additives in various beverages and foods, such as
sausages, yoghurt, milk, bakery products, cold cuts, spreads, margarines, etc.

also promoting their utilization within nutraceuticals and functional food and this is predicted to have a
positive impact on the phytosterols market in the coming years....
