About Plant Stanols

The active ingredient in Benecol is derived from plants. It's Mother Nature's way of lowering your cholesterol. 

Benecol® Products contain a plant-based ingredient called plant stanol which have been proven to reduce cholesterol in more than 70 clinical studies, including reports published in The New England Journal of Medicine and the American Journal of Cardiology.

Plant stanols partially block cholesterol from being absorbed. Like a statin can reduce cholesterol, plant stanols reduce serum LDL cholesterol while maintaining HDL cholesterol.

Benecol® Spreads taste like butter - and cook like butter. Use them in saute's, sauces, melted over steamed vegetables, or in your favorite baking recipes, from casseroles to cookies and cakes. For helpful kitchen hints, check out our recipe box
