Facing to the important health issue linked to the hypercholesterolemia, which is concerning more than 17% of the French population today, dietary recommendations have to precede or to accompany every medicinal treatment. However, everybody knows that it is often difficult to respect these dietary recommendations which are perceived as a list of forbidden foods. Moreover, they have to be associated to supplementary efforts in order to improve more generally the quality of life (no smoking, physical activity...). In this context, the phytostanols are an original and efficient solution to fight against excessive cholesterol. When incorporated into foods like spread, they can be integrated very easily in a balanced diet. Moreover, the phytostanol present a supplementary benefit when they are consumed in association with a medicinal treatment.
Key words: cholesterol / hypercholesterolemia / LDL-cholesterol / stanol / phytostanol
