Key Highlights
Consumption of foods enriched with plant stanols and sterols has been shown to have a clinically relevant effect on reducing LDL-C, and thus may be used as an alternative or in combination with statin therapy. Statin prescriptions have risen by 17% over the past five years, and the global market in statins is predicted to reach $12.2bn by 2018.

Consumers of phytosterol-enriched foods account for only 3% of all adults, signaling a vast untapped market. The typical existing consumers are a middle-aged couple without young children. Potential new target groups include the busy working parent, the hard-working professional, and individuals with a family history of cardiovascular disease.

Phytosterols are opaque in nature, and therefore cannot currently be added to clear foods and drinks. It is for this reason that all plant stanol- and sterol-enriched drinks are currently opaque, being milk- or yogurt-based or fruit juices. A manufacturer that can overcome this issue will be rewarded by a competitive advantage in the drinks market.
