Recent study results confirm, more clearly than before, the objectives related to LDL-cholesterol: the lower, the better and the sooner, the better.
The EU Commission approved Raisio's new health claim application on products containing plant stanol ester. According to the claim, a daily dose of 2.5-3.0 grams of plant stanol lowers cholesterol by 10.0-12.5 per cent.
After long regulation processes, Raisio received new authorisations to add plant stanol ester in foods in some countries in Asia. For years, Raisio has been actively working to expand into new markets in Asia and we continue, with our partners, to prepare new launches of Benecol products.
